I just moved to Hamburg, Germany from NYC and am now privileged to have a HUGE living room (12' x 27') that only has windows at one end and one door at the other (with a door need the windows to the garden).
But it needs some design help. Designed by my (German) boyfriend, who is now open to a little change so we're both comfortable...
We need to keep the sofa and piano, but everything else can go.
Any ideas for a medium budget of how to break up the space and make it cozy, but modern? Paint? Furniture? Rugs? Needs a total rehaul.
I'd love to feel more at home in this farway place with a language I don't understand (where it doesn't get light until 8:30am!).
