How can I brighten a dark colored room??

by Member on Oct. 4, 2012 at 8:33 PM

We have a huge wall in our living room, that our tv is on.  I would love to get rid of the giant entertainment center, but without it the wall will swallow up our tv.  How can I make this work?

We want to paint our living room. What color goes best with dark brown and olive green?

Hi Lance !

I am sort of stuck. I dont want to repaint an entire room and it seemed like a good idea when we did it, but I hate it. LOL.

Its a country blue color. We were going for sky blu, but it didnt work out that way. Problem is we are not country and we dont like country style. Its time to spruce this room up for a big boy room and I was wondering if there was any way to modernize it without actually repainting? :)

what are some good tips for arranging family pictures around the house?

I saw an idea once on Pinterest that says to cut out paper in the shape of the frame sizes and tape them to the wall in the place you want to put your pictures. It makes it easier to put them where you want without having all those holes in the wall ! :)
