I love the open floor plan of our "great room." It did however leave us a little worried about how our color scheme would turn out. The previous owner went with an all white room. For the living room we decided dark gray and it was time for a new grown-up couch anyway.
Living Room before (listing photo with previous owner's furniture). We lacked the foresight to take pictures before we started tearing stuff up. As you can see, it was white, white and white.
This is the (mostly) finished living room with paint! We found a window under than awful wood paneling. Although there's nothing exciting on the other side of it, I am a fan of letting in as much natural light as possible.
New living room furniture! It took some dedication to find a couch that was neither brown nor leather and wasn't too stiff. These are seat cushions you can just sink into! Now we need a humidifier to control the static in the winter time.
Before shot of the dining area/living room. The plan is a light gray wall with a dark charcoal/black for the lighting fixture. That lovely white wall is actually a nightmare in hiding. Wallpaper over wood paneling...
