    Red Dining Room Walls

    This dining room gets a bold and dramatic look while evoking a formal mood at the same time. The contrast of the white fireplace mantle, drapery, and chandelier lamp shades against the red walls creates drama and elegance. But for the real showstopper, take note of the gold ceiling, done in gold metallic paint – steal this idea if you want to add some WOW to your dining room.  What an idea! The gold ceiling paint is Martha Stewart Living Precious Metals paint in Kiwi Peel, available from Home Depot.  What do you think? Would you paint your ceiling gold? Leave a comment!

    Sophisticated & Modern Dining Room in Pink, Brown, Black and White

    This modern and sophisticated dining room really pops with style, yet this look is really easy to replicate in almost any space, and in a variety of price ranges (it doesn’t have to be expensive!). It all comes down to color and a few well chosen furnishings and  accessories. Start with a nice latte-type paint color (milk chocolate brown).  Use sheer white drapery panels, that touches the floor, on either side of all windows, suspended on a black rod-iron curtain rod. Choose a black-rod iron chandelier – one with crystals like that shown in the photo will add some glam. Round mirrors are hot right now. They add sophistication and…

    Sunny Gold Family Room

    A bright and cheery family room comes alive with the color of sunshine on the walls. This golden tone is a wonderful way to warm up a room, and works especially well when combined with browns and wood tones as seen here with the brown leather sofa, mahogany cocktail table, cherry built in cabinets and mantel. Notice, however, that the trim on the window is white, which also works extremely well with this golden wall color – and proves that all the built-in woodwork and trim in the house does not have to match.

    Beige, Dark Gray and White Family Room Decor

    Beige furniture with clean lines matched with rounded armrest styling looks fantastic in a white and dark gray living room. The beige furniture against the dark gray wall with white trim looks particularly striking – a great combination.  This room would look terrific if all the walls were done in the dark gray with white trim, however, what they’ve done here by combining the white brick feature wall with the dark gray walls works fabulous as well. It gives the room a really bright feel. The burgundy, sage and gray toss pillows on the sofa and love seat are a brilliant accessory choice. The burgundy adds that little extra something…

    Olive colored walls give this bedroom a relaxed, soothing feel. Your bedroom should be a special place and the chandelier suspended from the ceiling in the middle of the room is in keeping with that –  such an elegant addition to an already lovely space.
