Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Elegance of gray with white trim and the chandelier. Would look great with my black framed Germany city prints, but require all new furniture.
Use this along with bookcases in the larger "living room" and put the couch with a small TV in the back smaller family room.
The painted panelling is a good idea for the dated dark wood panelled family rooms in a lot of the houses in this area. A little more masculine than the French white panelled option.
Great way to incorporate a flat screen TV. Brown and yellow color scheme balance nicely. The dark wood floor keeps it from being too primary. Could do this for a family room.
Blue and brown - my favorite combo. Love the deep blue velvet chair. Would also work with well restrained brown Chesterfield type sofa.
Very nice colors for a traditional home. Could use a subtle, broad stripe for the wall above the wainscotting if the wallpaper is too much.
Wall 'o maps! This would be beautiful in any room or up a stairway wall.
Door panels mounted as art on the wall. These are not my style, but this is a reminder that beautiful items can be displayed beautifully on walls.
Great modern vibe for a family room.
Lovely use of blue, yellow and red.
Bamboo shades with curtains add a nice, seaside layered look to the room.
Simple, attractive curtains would prove some polish without much fussiness.
Love the color this couch. Would look good in the rec room.
Another good paint possibility: Shaker Beige by Benjamin Moore
Lovely use of blue. Might be good for reupholstering the chairs.
Love the colors and textures. The couch is more blue in website pictures at www.southshoredecoratinug.com
Benjamin Moore Cape Hatteras Sand on walls. Colors on the chair match the Ethan Allen chair.
The yellow and gray fabric is a real showstopper. Might be the right combo for the living room chairs

The fabric on the chair in the foreground is a good candidate for my living room set.
Window treatments are a nice example of what I envision for the living room.
How about these curtains?
