Loved the blue walls so much want to recreate for my own home, but looked up Benjamin Moore Deep Royal and it looks completely different. Are you certain that's the color that was used?

this is a great example of the type of spaces i am drawn to and how i would like my own home to look. but capturing hipstery/minimalism/antiquey eclecticism...isn't easy for me. i think what i love best about this is that living room. i love how they didn't paint the walls blue all the way up. they must be really tall ceilings and the white only adds to the height.

sometimes i get angry when people paint wood trim and sometimes i think it is for the best. here, i'm glad they left the wood brown.

MIranda, two things to keep in mind. One, is this a style that you like (beyond the sentimental value), and two, older furniture is better made than most furniture manufactured today. If you like the style as it, or as joycelop mentioned, freshen it up with paint, stain, etc., that's great! You'll save yourself some $$ and have real wood furniture.

My mother worked in the ladies' clothing section of a Good Will store for 11 years. She went back to work after my father dropped dead at 60. She had 401(k) contributions and health insurance and was able to support herself without help from the government. I'm glad the neighborhood shopped there so there was a need for her services. I am assuming positive intentions for all the comments about whether or not Good Will or another store should be frequented. May I kindly suggest there might be some over thinking? I'm happy there are plenty of options to give our clutter new life. My current goal is to avoid bringing the clutter into the house in the first place!
