• What: AT's New York Design Meetup
• August Guests: 6 Members with problem rooms
• Members: 1,131 and growing

Last Wednesday we had a remarkable meetup in which we got to hear six people share the problems they're having with one room in their home. Then the crowd jumped in to help. The pics above are all from Debbie's living room on the Upper West Side. Head below the jump to find out the problem and see if you can help...

Name: Debbie Ullman
Location: Riverside Drive near Columbia University
Room: Living Room
Size: The living room is 13.5' by 18.5'. The entire apt. is about 800 square feet.
Years lived in: 12 years

Problem: I have lots of cool stuff in there but wonder if there's a better way to organize it. The painting on the wall is 96" long and I can't move it anywhere else... I need rugs, window treatments and to recover the daybeds...not sure about color. And new couch fabric that has to be able to withstand greicy, my sweet but crazy hairless cat. As a graphic designer, I have too many ideas about it and can't make up my mind...help!

Budget: $2,000

Last Room:
