The ceiling is vaulted on the family room half, but it's still a little awkward in terms of space layout. It's hard to clearly define the large open space. Let me just jump to pictures. Here's my solution.
|Big fuzzy rug to define the space better.|
|Still a work in progress, but much better.|
|Looking down to the back entry. It's actually reasonably tidied up.|
|Mmm, fuzzy texture. It's so soft under foot and warms the space up well.|
