Q: My boyfriend and I have lived in this apartment for about 7 months, and have yet to figure out a way to arrange this room that doesn't look awkward. I don't have good photos of its current arrangement (and even if I did I might be embarrassed to include them), but it's not pretty.

Trying to include kitchen, living room, dining room, and office space into one extra-large rectangle is stumping me. Each space has its own purpose, and there's room for everything, but they all need to live together in harmony! The ceilings are much too high for room dividers to appear natural... I'm struggling to achieve some cohesion without appearing cluttered.
