Dear AT,

I just bought an apartment (it is exactly the same as the one I am renting right now - see attached pictures).

It has a long and narrow living/dinning room and as you can see we are overflowing with furnitures and toys!!!

We will be changing the floor to a rustic oak wood floor, but I am stuck as to what color paints to use on my walls (since basically with the semi open kitchen, and the windows, I only have two very long walls to work with!!!), or how to arrange the furniture!...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.

Please help as I am really desperate!

Since the room is so long and narrow, I don't want to end up choosing the wrong color and feel claustrophobic!

Any suggestions will help!

Thanks! Andrea
