Low-profile furnishings, like this family room's sectional sofa, accentuate proportions.
Luisa and Duane Hertzer's Calgary home, designed by James McIntyre, has a long, narrow horizontal space at the back of the house. To make the most of the space, they aligned the kitchen, family room and eating nook in a row. To the right, a marble fireplace surround houses storage and a TV.
