Need professional help with colour scheme! to paint or not! where to start?
Please Help, I don't know where to start but I know it needs to change. Any ideas would be really appreciated. Thank you
I would like to repaint the walls a new colour but am having a hard time choosing a colour and deciding if I need to paint the kitchen cabinets too. The main floor is very open. We are drowning in blond oak (floors, stairs, fireplace, railings and cabinets).
Colour scheme: I have considered grey, not sure how this will look with all the oak and the creamy beige of the fireplace marble.
I'm open to replacing some window coverings, art work (love www.timpacker.com), rug and upolstered light beige side chair and desk chairs, but the big furniture has to stay
The living room window and patio door face north, on a dull day the room can feel dark.
The kitchen: should I paint the cabinets white? I am concerned the floor tiles will look dingy against white cabinets esp as the grout is a grey colour. ? (I've considered dark cabinets but I think we have way too much brown and wood going on.)
The pillars are load bearing and I would like to change them to something more modern.
Window treatments, leave or change?: We need some privacy during the day as the houses are so close together we look into each others windows.
The living room and dining windows are covered with 2" white horizontal blinds. The window above the desk is covered with a 2" brown wood horizontal blind and the patio door is covered with a white vertical blind.
The dining window is off center to the coffered ceiling and the light fixture.
There is no space between the living room window and the fireplace. there is approx 5" of bulk head above the patio door so any drapes must be hung at door height.
Fireplace: ideas to make it less obtrusive.
