Q: I have an issue with my new condo's floor plan. The living room and kitchen are quite close to each other, and while the space isn't too small, the furniture arrangement is limited by the location of the patio door, bedroom door, and kitchen island. I'd also love some suggestions on the paint colors — they were already here when I moved in, and I hate them. Should I just paint the whole room white?

I couldn't get the left side of the room in the photo, but it's a large forest green wall where I originally placed the sofa. In the foreground is the kitchen island. What would be the best way to arrange furniture in this room to maximize the space?
