My living room mocked me for a number of years.It faces north and like my kitchen, doesn't get a lot of sunlight in the afternoon. The bay window posed another challenge. Curtains hung awkwardly and went up and then came back down, furniture had no clear place to land... I tried my usual painting and painting and then painting again as a quick fix, but color clearly wasn't the answer.
This room has one interior wall, two interior doors, five windows, a fireplace wall and a 9' long bay window, all of which added up to a challenge.
