You don’t want your space to feel like an under-designed apartment! So if you choose to go light and bright, expose interesting architectural features, choose brightly colored modern accents, hang art, or make your furniture a strong focal point. This wonderful white living room works because the lack of color draws attention to the beautiful crown molding. If you look closely, the paint colors actually accentuate the molding. The layers of architectural detail are painted in different shades of white to distinguish the texture, and the result is stunning!
Many home furnishings companies have reproduction lines that recreate the nostalgic and retro looks that we all love. If you decide to use authentic period furniture from garage sales, hand-me-downs or from vintage stores, ensure you are safe when painting, refinishing, or changing the look of old furniture. Especially children’s furnishings can have lead based paint, toxic varnishes and also can have safeguards that are not in place as modern children’s furniture. Keep this in mind if you’re refinishing old furniture or plan to buy children’s cribs, changing tables and other adolescent furniture.
Choose elements that are neither harsh nor extreme. If this is going to be the primary space for guests, avoid colors that are too severe or gender specific as these could alienate some of your guests. Primary colors and neutrals are always a safe bet. Lighter, brighter colors work best in when used sparingly.
