NY Good Questions: How Should I Set This Room Up?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I just moved into my boyfriend Paul's house and I'm in a redecorating frenzy.

Only problem is, the living room is giving me trouble. I'm stuck!

We have a bunch of different styles of furniture, and we're open to using/not using/re-upholstering all or any of it (there's room for one of the couches if need be in the bedroom), or even buying something new if it's just perfect...

I'm looking for some good advice on how to set this room up.

Ok, but here's the wrench in the plans: in addition to all of this, Paul really wants a comfy chair + ottoman (preferably leather, but open to other ideas) to face the TV.

Is there a way to do this without making the whole room seem too 'TV-centric' and, what style leather chair would we buy that would complement such a mix of styles already?

Thanks! Nicola
