So many of you helped with my bathroom, that I thought I would get over my shame and ask for help with this room. First of all, the dining room table and desk behind it have been sold, I plan to put in a dark wood oval dining table. Also the drapes and 100 photo's above the sofa are coming down. So if you can visualize the blue sofa with the two chairs, lighting and some panels... my questions are: What color paint for the living/dining area and seperate color for hallway? I tried RH pumice, on the wall are swatches of Dunn Edwards silver polish and in the hall overcast. They look way too blue. I am not replacing the carpet or the tile (oh how I wish I could). I am not liking the house, yet it is almost all mine in an incredible neighborhood... so I am hoping I can update on a budget starting with paint, drapes, a throw rug, lighting, etc. So... anyone inclined to help me? I know the end result of what I like sophisticated traditional, but don't quite know how to get there. A few things...room is vaulted, tons of sun as I am in AZ, and the footprint of my house is perfect for us, it is just the decor that is well... yucky. One other side note...don't laugh as I am asking for a change... is there any way I can keep that curio or is it too dated (it is sentimental).
Thank you in advance... so many of you are so talented I sit in envy of the homes you design. Feel free to send links of any ideas or paint color names.
