Space Planning

So I came across this attic makeover by Candice Olson on Pinterest. It’s lovely, the color scheme is cohesive and serene, the lighting is effective and there is a popcorn machine. All of that is great. But what I love the most about this is the space planning. It’s genius. She has taken a random attic and made it into an office/dining room/home theater combo and it doesn’t feel cramped. It feels cozy. This is a family room that a boat load of people could use in a multitude of ways and not necessarily intrude upon the others. Beyond the colors, the lighting, the finishes, this is good design. What do you think?
