Need help remodeling dining room and living room
March 31, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm taking down the half wall. My home has a lot of oak stained wood. I plan to have dark hickory wood floors and tile at the front door entry. Having trouble with paint colors for these rooms? Also seating arrangements my L.R. is very long with brick back wall fireplace and lots of doorways. would appreciate design suggestiions?

Rooms look dark. How about a medium color for floor and not dark color? I like white or very light wall paint and add color with art, rugs, furniture, pillows. Cute bow window in DR. I'd use this photo for DR inspiration:

In LR, I'd have a sofa facing the fireplace and chairs on each side of the fireplace.

Taking the wall down is going to really brighten that room. Your FP seems to have a lot of gold in the brick, so you will need to consider that when choosing your paint. I love hickory for the floor- if it isn't too yellow. What color is your furniture? I see a leather recliner, but what else is going in the room?

picture with furniture is the fam rm that I just finished. I have no furniture for my L.R. my dining set is dark wood. Love the room on the right, really pulled together. I painted my office that color. Its nice and cheery! My fam rm is heritage hickory and I was thinking of doing that in the LR AND DR or maybe going lighter. Appreciate your help
