I have an awkward living room space. In one corner, I have the front door, which opens directly into living room, another corner is the stairs, and another corner is the door to the kitchen. This makes it difficult getting the cosy arrangement I crave. I've lived here over a year and have rearranged living room more times than I'd have thought possible, but however it's laid out, I don't ever feel fully relaxed in there. It could be a lot to do with the furniture itself and what I'm lacking. Colours/rugs etc. Any and all advice would be welcome please. Ideas on what type of furniture to fill spaces etcetc. Thanks.
My photos aren't uploading for some reason so have added into the comments. Please excuse child and dog!
