We like the idea of a large open space which incorporates the living room and dining room but unfortunately, it's easier said than done. Lucky for us, Kim does an amazing job by creating a cohesive space that does double duty...In order to make these two spaces feel separate, Kim uses a chaise lounge and side table to section off the living room from the dining room. And while the challenge is usually found when the two spaces have to unite--Kim pulls it off effortlessly. She incorporates two rugs to define the adjoining areas but instead of contrasting rugs--Kim uses the exact same one. She does this again with the wall art by hanging identical red canvases in the separate zones. It helps that the color palette is kept neutral which allows these decor choices to stand out while unifying and separating the large room all at the same time.
