PS: Do you have any tips for creating distinct spaces in an open floor plan?
NS: Spend a lot of time on layout and use the largest pieces to anchor each space. Rugs and sofas are a great way to start — and don't go too small. If you have a larger space, use rugs as a way to tie all your pieces together. Pick a spot for the rug and try positioning furniture so that at least one leg of every piece (except the TV console) is on the rug. By allowing all pieces a common touch point, the space will feel anchored and intimate.
