Yes, Karen Pittenger, today I would not choose fur... But I have one from my mom that is gorgeous from 40 years ago. I'd rather celebrate them ( the beautiful critters) then leave them in a closet and pretend it never happened.

I think that is a really good use of a usually wasted wall space...I will be copying

yes I´ve got everything out except the fireplace and that wall cupboard. The rug is white, the walls are now white too, the new furniture will be white , Moroccan style. It was a TV room, I´ve put that somewhere else . Its just so small and dark, I don´t know really how to cheer it up without disappearing under colourful cushions !

Hi Michele. I see this is "continued" -- has the subject of power cleaning and/or painting the fireplace come up? I think its pattern is really pretty, and deserves to be seen properly.

You don't need to disappear under colourful cushions. :-) Nice image, though... anyone seen Michele? You could pick one cushion to start with, or a rug, in a Moroccan pattern that has colours you like, and then choose a limited palette from that, e.g. below. Use two blending colours, and a contrast for small touches. Just choose colours that have a lightness and brightness to them. Use them together with white and a light neutral for your upholstery, a sane quantity of cushions, glassware. None of which need to continue the Moroccan theme if you don't want them to; simple would be good too. Also, choose art that brings a lift to the heart and eye.

For metallic items, eg candlesticks or bowls, I'd suggest that you avoid bronze, or dark gold, or peweter -- go for light-reflecting silver instead. If you have dark items (small) that you want to use in the room, perhaps cluster them together in one area as a kind of punctuation of the generally brighter look.

Also consider extra lighting, such as a downlight in the darkest corner.

Either increase the size of window opening or the wall to the kitchen for more natural light.
