Karenlyman, I can understand the modern look of this post not being to your taste. How about using these flat surfaces as opportunities for murals, or a very securely hung painting? Or you could add some beautiful plants to the open shelving areas. There are plenty of ways the sometimes harsh look of ultra modern can be softened.
