The quickest way to transform a space is to rearrange the furniture. Keep moving pieces until you discover a refreshing setup.
Take It Away: Subtracting pieces helps a room breathe. Boyd pared down Elizabeth's collection of art books so that they wouldn't overpower the accessories on display.
Rezone: The key to the newly arranged living room is that it now has zones: an armchair and a lamp for reading, the couch and chair for entertaining, and a corner with a desk as her home office.
Soft Touch: A throw draped over Elizabeth's armchair gives the room a lived-in look.
