I would have the couch face the view. I would also like the couch to be dark leather and more rounded than square! I chose this picture for the view and couch, but I would like a more modern/futuristic look.
That Pottery Barn candle chandelier is perfection. My favorite design feature is the stone fireplace, it's so dramatic and rustic. These high ceilings are fantastic, totally transforms the space into more than just your typical living/family room.
