Hi! I am having a real Dilemma with my living room: it is too dark and gloomy. I had a vision for it but because of a tight budget I had to compromise on a few things. We just bought the house.
Now there is too much black furniture and the walls are too dark to accommodate them. I was thinking an accent color could lighten the room up a bit. But what color? Repainting the walls isn't an option. Neither is new furniture.
Below is a picture just to give you an idea of the look. Except now we have black end tables and coffee table until we can afford to buy new ones. Also have silver lamps with grey shades until we can buy new. If this makes a difference the floor plan is open and you can see into the dinning room from the living room which is a dark yellow I guess.
Thanks for your help!!
**I just realized this picture makes the walls look much lighter then they really are. They are actually a dark bluish grey. Wish I had a better picture.
