coming up the stairs into the living room, which is about 13'x24', you see nothing is placed properly, the furniture dosen't "fit" & the colors do not compliment each other. the hardwood floor is very dark along with the steps & railing. the sloped ceiling looks like it dosen't belong in this house as I feel it makes it harder to give it the look I would like. curtains are hung in front of the up stairs year round. there is nothing cozy & comfortable about this room & when I am in it I feel stress because I cannot re-do it as I don't know how & money is tight. I cannot relax in this room. the fireplace is not even used because things are so upside down - nothing is nice.
