Need help lightening this dark room !
December 26, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I have this very dark den....this is the room at noon, in bright sunlight, with all the lights turned on. Help! Note: the paneling is expensive rare fruitwood, hand-grooved paneling (not cheap imitation) which is why I'm having toruble working up the nerve to paint it. But the room is too dark! Should I paint, it, or change the furniture and decor? If I paint, do I do it all, or just one or two walls ? If I paint it, should I whitewash it ?
