    I do not like the idea of grey in this room. Grey is a cool color and the floors are a beautiful, golden color. I would try pumpkin or carmel color. Use it on the INTERIOR back walls of the shelves. Then I would use a shade darker, complementary color on the recessed areas in the ceiling.
    I would change out the area rug using a pattern that incorporates the same colors in a pattern. Leave the walls outside the shelves the same color. This will warm up the entire room. You may need to replace the ottoman with a warm tone fabric with a pattern that coordinates with the new area rug. Bring in some cream accesories into the shelving which will now pop against the pumpkin or carmel back wall. This room has wonderful "bones" and could be really a warm inviting area with color on the walls & ceiling. Love the potential here.

    I agree - grey may be trendy but it is a cold color. I know designers are in love with it right now but I don't think it will last. I grew up in a house that my parents painted grey and it made me so deppressed my whole life I swore I would never paint anything grey - and I never have used grey (on the walls) with so many clients over 7 years. So I may be biased against it, but it looks to me that this space needs a warmer color palette. I like the pumpkin/gold idea and I would think Benjamin Moore Oklahoma Wheat. Also south facing rooms can be very difficult so test the shades in different spots and look at them in day and night lighting. Oklahoma wheat may be great during the day but too intense at night... worth a try though to be in that family.

    Since no one ever answered, I'd take an educated guess at something like 12 x 16.

Do you know what type of wood floor that is?

  • Brooke Enge
    The flooring looks like repurposed barn wood flooring. We just installed some very similar from barnwood naturals out of salem, or.

        Thank you for your interest in this picture. The hurricane candles were owned by the client and we do not know where they purchased them.
