I really like them for your space. Can you post any additional photos of the space from other angles?

The only thing I would change is the round sconces on the wall. In a natural wood, brass or deep grey that would pull your eye toward the window.

Natasha, I read your initial post: something needs to pop and you like monochromatic.
You wonder if there's too much contrast?of navy pillows with what the couch?

Since you live there, please explain more, or post photos of what your place in basics looks like, But with pop and wow and shazam....... ? it would help.

I haven't lived in a high-rise, but I've heard that you can leave the indoors more plain so as to not draw too much attention from the view outdoors. Do you think that way?

What about a basket like this for blankets and pillows when using the sofa?

Yeah and if it was from the heart of the tree the grain would be a lot more dense and heavy. 4 Is definitely quarter sawn white oak. 1 I'm almost siding with mahogany. Would help if we had a more overall picture of 1. 2&3 are definitely just yellow pine.

Linly Designs- couldn't agree more

The flow is nice, a great contrast from one room to another! I ended up loving the silver strand and am going to do it in the bedrooms, at least the master. I feel very satisfied and glad to have an end to the "paint nightmares."

I'm excited to see how the Silver Strand turns out in your bedroom. I'm loving my pantry/laundry room more and more everyday since I used that color. I'm till debating guest bathroom colors....Sea Salt or possilby Rainwashed, then something inside says no keep it neutral. Agh!

My eyes are seeing some undertones that don't play well together... maybe the walls and backsplash are too green in undertone for the pinkish undertone flooring and counters? Anyone else see that? Would a different undertone of paint help to marry the backsplash to the rest of the room better?

Looks like copper or tobacco would pull undertones from your floor. Because the colours look different from photo to photo, try taking a sample of your floor and tile to the store - at either BM or SW, you're likely to find help in selection.

The undertone of your ceiling color does not match the undertone of your walls. Also the undertone of your floor does not match the walls. So definitely need to change the walls to something that works with both. A medium gray would be really pretty. Something in the family of SW Anew Gray or SW Amazing Gray maybe?

I would grab swatches to see what matches the undertones of your floor and ceiling.

I think once you get rid of the vertical blinds (which look dated) and definitely upgrade that chandelier, there will be a huge difference. Doing the floors and trim will enhance the fresh look as well. I wouldn't give up on the paint yet - I think it will come a long ways when you're done. I think part of what you're missing right now is depth and texture, and those upgraded elements will help. How about some contemporary patterned drapes instead of white slatted blinds?

I also think right now the space is lacking a focal point - at least from what I can tell in the photos. This is the first chandelier that comes to my mind for your, and also hang it lower so it's closer above the table instead of up in the sky. :)

I would say no to the crown. It would take away from the exposed wood beams in my opinion, and also not really work as well with your Farmhouse look. If you wanted to add more millwork, I would consider a board and batten treatment on a wall or all walls of the area. My favorite treatment of a vaulted ceiling is tongue-and-groove. Love that look.

How about duplicating what trim you're using around doorframes as crown? Keeps it simple and ties it together. Painted as well.

Thank you all for your comments. So sorry that I was neglectful in mentioning that we plan to tongue and groove the ceiling as well....duh! Will this make a difference in your answer?

I think the Renate is the right choice. I'm a little worried about the drapery pattern.

There are so any ways of displaying plates and it all depends on the style you are going for which should relate to the rest of your home

Door Store and Windows
There is a relatively new material on the market called Ultrex -- it's made by Integrity from Marvin Windows and Doors. Ultrex is a protruded fiberglass material that is strong, stable, LOW MAINTENANCE and efficient. Integrity can customize windows to fit the look of your home, and you can even get a wood/ultrex combo that allows for wood on the interior. Here's a link for more information: http://www.integritywindows.com/Ultrex-Fiberglass/
Good luck!

Door Store and Windows - good suggestion!

Marvin Integrity Ultrex - That's the window I chose when we built our home and I love them. I've had them for 3 years now. The Ultrex material has been easy to clean and its not as shiny as vinyl, which I prefer. Looks richer. I chose them for the reason of durability. I plan to stay in this home for a long time.

Also, since I used white trim inside my home also, I used the white Ultrex material for both the inside and outside of the windows, complete with jambs so that there would never be anything I'd have to repaint due to wear or water damage (like if a window was left open during rain or something).

They are not the cheapest option (I chose them based on quality) but I will say that they have been wonderful for me.

I'm really liking some linen/cotton panels I found on pottery barn, but I want to see other options before I plunk down $450 on 4 panels. I currently have dupioni silk curtains and I think they are too shiny for my great room, which I am working to make a little more light and casual. I need to have them lined also.

These are the style I like thus far if you have any other suggestions. I have a swatch and its very pretty. http://www.potterybarn.com/products/avery-linen-cotton-print-drape/?pkey=call-windows&cm_src=all-windows||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_--_-

I'm repainting the great room (it is currently dark taupe) SW Accessible Beige @ 150%, and my plan is to replace my darker taupe silk curtains in the process with some lighter gray and cream ones.

Also I do not have much for home décor stores in my area, no pottery barn, west elm, ikea, etc. so I've been looking online especially since I require the longer length panels...thanks for suggestions!

Just asking for advice as I have seen many designers on here recommend paint colours. My walls are covered in many many samples and I don't seem to have the eye to pick out two colours that go well together. The lady that owns the BM I went to claims to be a designer yet, all she did was try to sell me the yellow paint that she mis tinted for another customer and all I was asking was for her to show me which BM paint colour was closest to the SW swatch that I had.

BM Edgecomb Gray is a great light neutral tone. It pairs very nicely with aquas, blues and orange also.

Here's an example with an orange rug, which would be a fun way to pop color in a space without doing an accent wall.
Family Room

Another tone that is lighter yet would be BM Paper Mache... here's an example: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/for-your-home/modern-bedroom-with-royal-flush-2076-20-accent-wall
