There's still time to visit the 2015 Southern Living Idea House outside of Charlottesville, VA - it's open until December 20. One of my favorite rooms in the house, all decorated by Bunny Williams, was the great room. It's a relaxed and comfortable space that is also very interesting. The collection and arrangement of the art was fabulous. Great designers can create beautiful spaces but I think it takes a special talent to make them interesting as well.
Comfortable and practical - a dog bed nestled under an end table
a coffee table purposed as an end table - lots of room for books and things
