To paint wood walls or not?
September 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have a nice sized living room, but there are two wood walls opposite eachother. We live out in the country, so my husband wants to keep the "rustic" walls.. but they have a weird orange hue to them and I'm not really a big fan. PLUS the fireplace just looks so plain and blends in. The living room is dark to start with, no ceiling lights right now (planned in the future). Would painting the walls a white/cream color be too much? Or maybe just the fireplace?. I do love the beam on the ceiling and even thought about extending that, but I'm just at a loss for what to do with the walls and fireplace! Thanks for your input.
