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.
Barn House Vaulted Ceilings Living Room: a beach barn house on Martha’s Vineyard by Hutker Architects and Liz Stiving-Nichols of Martha’s Vineyard Interior Design. Love the open floor plan, that ceiling, and wall of windows.
