The main idea was to divide the front room into two categories of usable space: The formal living area, which would entertain guests as well as be used for watching TV, games, etc and the informal area which doubles up as a work-out area.
The toddler table is kept in near the closet door and is not assigned any permanent place, since it would be done away with in a couple of years.
The TV is mounted on a constructed on site plywood partition, which helps in concealing the wiring and can also be used to hang coats, umbrellas, etc on the otherside, thus creating a small foyer space.
The angled wall area, is given a lounge space, custom-made to the site, and can hence accomodate a couple of more people, while giving some storage in the drawer below it.
It is kept at 1' from the floor level, lower than the usual sofa height, to prevent blocking the light coming in from the windows.
The TV unit is custom-made to match the dimension of the low height lounge as well as the length of the plywood partition, but can be replaced by a store bought unit.
The sofa is a 2 seater+ chaise lounge, which can be replaced by a 3 seater+ chaise lounge or a 4 seater sofa too.
A rug, small coffee table and the floor lamp are included and this completes the formal area of the room, which is separated from the work-out area by a free-standing cabinet.
The wall with the arched doorway has a custom-made-to-fit cabinet and a small "toy dump" area below, which can be used to store toys, yoga mats, dog bowls, etc.
I have left the wall behind the sofa as blank, because the height of the roof is low there and anything protruding would be an obstacle while using the sofa. The opposite wall can be used to put up artwork.
Only one pendant light near the entrance. The rest of the ceiling can have recessed ceiling lights, because the roof height gets less elsewhere.
I have kept the wall and the ceiling colour as it is existing. The white shades/curtains also as it is, but repainted the angular walls in pastel grey-green shade. It complements the lighter existing shades as well as contrasts the flooring shade.
The rugs and doormats are kept in dark brown shade, matching the flooring. It prevents visibility of dust and dog hair, since the dog will be using it most often, I guess.
The solid furniture is kept white, as it can be cleaned easily. And the fabrics are grey-green too, the shade which hides dust/ food spill marks, etc.
The cushion covers are in the same shade as the existing walls.
