Living Room and Dining Room 2012

The living room and dining room areas of this house had stark white walls.  The fireplace in the living room had a small ornate oak mantel that did not work for the size of the wall.  I took out the mantel and replaced it with a simple black shelf so I could integrate it with the book cases and make it all look like it was built in.  I changed the paint color to Sierra Redwood from Sherwin Williams, keeping the ceiling white in order to provide a sense of depth without making the room seem smaller.  I also painted the inset area near the front windows, leaving the surrounding area white.
