Living / Dining Room Before Makeover

Living / Dining Room Before


BEFORE:  Despite the white walls, this combination living and dining room seems dark and has no flow through the space. Country-style furnishings make it feel old and outdated, and the view is blocked by curtains.

Living / Dining Room After Redesign

AFTER:  Painting the walls a rich gold tone brings much-needed warmth to the space. The dark trim was painted white to create contrast, highlighting the dark wood floors. Side-panel drapes frame the windows and the view, allowing plenty of light into the room. A lighter, neutral-colored rug helps to define the conversation area, and updated furnishings are positioned to allow traffic to flow from one space to the other.

    I was browsing family room makeovers tonight and google images brought me to your site. I have had horrible luck picking yellow/gold paints although I love them in rooms, and I have to know what the color is you put on the walls here if you remember. It’s beautiful! Thanks!
