Here is a couple of pictures of my very small living room. I think it just as good.

Love the rooms (above). My living/dining room is still 'work in progress' due to being financially challenged but I'm getting there. One piece of Houzz advice I took on board was not to have the matching settee plus armchair... as it comes across as one solid block of colour and makes the room seem smaller... So I went for a papasan seat with it's more open design as my alternative single 'armchair'. And yes, the 3- seater sofa that would have doubled as a bed, will now be a 2-seater. The larger one would really swamp the room...
