I recently bought a 1000 sq ft 1 bedroom condo. I painted the main living area a rich brown. Behr ultra new chestnut. I was afraid it would be too dark but I think it turned out well. Although I do think I need some art on the walls to lighten it up some. I have incorporated a good bit of glass in my tables as u can see. I hope the pictures help. Thank you to everyone in advance for you're help.
