As Jane’s pregnancy threatens her new relationship, and the reality of single motherhood approaches, she is forced to decide what to do about both her baby and her budding romance.

What can I do with an L-shaped room?
For an L-shape room, rather than position the bed in the corner of the “L” (or middle point of the room), take advantage of the “nooks” at both ends. Place the bed at one end for a more intimate sleeping area, and the dressing area — possibly creating a walk-in wardrobe — at the other.

How do you furnish an awkward shaped room?
Use mirrors to enhance a small, odd-shaped area of the room. If you want your living room to seem more spacious, reflective glass and mirrors placed in strategic areas will seemingly double the space. These can also be used to create a sense of symmetry in a room with awkward walls or architectural features.
