We recently painted our kitchen and added white shelves and several white decorative pieces...we love how it has really brightened things up! However, our family room now seems to be rather dark and the two rooms don't seem to compliment each other. When you stand in the kitchen, you can see the family room and vice versa. Any color suggestions for the walls??? Accent colors...maybe for pillows??? What about painting the wooden built-in shelves white with a darker color on the wall behind it and then the walls a lighter shade??? ANY ideas at all to make this room flow better with the kitchen or just updated in general! Any ideas for decorating the shelves would be appreciated as well!! (Side note- we have a 3 year old so that coffee table is actually a play table for him...it has to stay :) Thank you so much!!!
