Stuck in the 60's...need help with TV room makeover.
My husband and I now own his parents house that was built in 1965. We also inherited all the furnishings. Slowly, we are making the house be more reflective of us. Although, I do tend to like traditional, transitional and mid century design, I would like to see this room lightened up and more welcoming! My husband builds wooden boats, so I thought perhaps a large photo or mural of the boats would look great on the wall... I go back and forth on the wood paneling, paint it? whitewash it? make it look like wainscoting?...and the flame shag area rug on the floor? It's so old, I think it may be cool again! I welcome any suggestions. Thank you!
