I love my dressing table. It was the first piece of furniture I purchased for myself after my divorce and it felt very empowering after finally escaping that controlling relationship.

Locate an experienced and qualified interior designer who represents your esthetic to get some ideas (many are for hire on a consulting basis and/or a project basis) ... there are so many exciting things you can do with your space.

I would leave the wood by the stairway as an accent wall. Paint the bedroom paneling. Remove the paneling in the room with the fireplace. And either paint the wood above the fireplace the color you'll be using in the room or remove it and do a different wall treatment (eg. drywall and then accessorize it)

I would leave a little paneling as an accent wall, maybe distress it or white wash paint it, to add interest and texture, just one or two walls

Eclectic ... deriving ideas, style or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources. If you do a search on Houzz for 'eclectic interior design' you'll get +360,000 hits ... http://www.houzz.com/eclectic-interior-design ... some members of this site have used this word as a description for what they're looking at ... and all the photos are different, from Victorian to the very sleek and contemporary. Rather than cookie-cutter design I think it offers a window into the personality of who inhabits the space. I think it's one of the more difficult "styles" to execute and like any interior design, when it is done well, it can be pretty darn exciting.

Eclecticism is life itself. Who doesn't like mixed flowers bouquets? Who hasn't hated one color when younger to simply love it later on? Life is not just one thing, one idea, one momentum, one and only one color, one and only this and that. It is a path comprised of many different things that grace our journey.

Really do not like niches .. I would eliminate them. When we built our home 3 years ago, the builder's plans called for niches and plant shelves. I had them all removed.

Yep, I have dark brown leather furniture in the den and really want to add some color and "life" to the room. This was a great option for Texas but now that we're in Florida; I need to brighten things up. I hope more of you will add pics of your "leather" rooms. I need inspiration!

E Latimer-agree with area rug comments. I would move ottoman to another area in the room ( maybe even remove it) to break up "the leather" look. Get an interesting coffee table to add texture and dimension to the room.

Pocket doors are a great design feature that can help open up a room with limited space. Pocket doors can add style to a room while also providing privacy to an area.

We use either pocket doors or surface mounted doors on exposed tracks, depending on the application. I love the look of the exposed track hardware, but you need clear wall space to the side of the door opening in order to make it work. The door then becomes a design feature. A pocket door essentially disappears when open, so you can create a greater flow of space.

Paint Your Bed for a Colorful Night’s Sleep

I apologize that I missed the point of the article. I love the idea of painting bedroom furniture. In fact, seeing this inspires me to maybe look at a different color for my guest bedroom furniture.

Although black is a common color for beds, when one would expect to see red and they see black instead, the designers goal of creating visually unexpected and therefore interesting artistic settings may be achieved. Such was the case when we painted a red Qing Dynasty canopy bed black so that we could use it in a child's bedroom. The children love the bed and the room, and the parents love showing their friends. I appreciate that some readers will think that we are crazy for painting antiques - but to us the joy we get from actually using the bed far outweighs any lost value which may occur because we changed the original color of the piece. We simply appreciate the piece that much more!

Those sofas are very weird. They are so high and visually obstruct the space. They also look amazingly uncomfortable. I think you could have achieved the same impact using the same colors on normal height sofas.

I applaud you on your boldness with your color scheme. Certainly a chandelier would be fabulous in this room. Many that others have been suggested would be wonderful. But if I may, I would make other suggestions. In my humble opinion, the small picture over the bed is out of proportion to the amount of wall space. I would either find something longer and taller, a grouping, a monogram appliqué or the like to fill the space above the bed, or leave it completely blank. If you do plan to use a beautiful dramatic chandelier, I would take down the, (please excuse my term), pom-poms near the windows. I think it would detract from your chandelier and there seems to be a lot going on up there. I very much like the bedspread, however if it were my design, I would break up the pattern with pillows of solid black and/or assorted patterns of chevron, stripes.. dots, or the like. To make it really pop, painting the headboard white would be brilliant against your beautiful walls and compliment the white sheer curtains. Then, you could add white into the pillows or other accents for an extra WOW factor. This is certainly more than you asked for, but I hope you find it helpful. This really caught my eye on twitter. Thank you for sharing your room.
