What Houzz contributors are saying:

You may also want to break up an oversized ottoman with a throw.
Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: An East Coast Victorian
This is a transition room, that eases the changes from the dark wood of the rooms in the front of the house to the off white kitchen.
Becky Harris added this to Home Styles: New Traditional Design
Home No. 5. A Victorian gets a lift from light: This is an East Coast Victorian that had many of its original details still intact. Unfortunately, the home was so dark and closed in that it only felt family-friendly to the likes of Morticia Addams and Cousin Itt. Enter designer Abbey Koplovitz, who breathed life into it with light color, some reconfiguring and soft, stain-proof fabrics.
Christina Katos added this to How to Fix a Mirror-Above-the-Mantel Dilemma
Whether the woodwork is painted or stained, its details add character to a space.
