    The wall color looks a lot like BM Silken Pine.

    I don't think that would look too forced - some continuity is good.

    Isn't that what Houzz is all about or is it a secret, too.

    Would this work with walls that are not that high?

    Teal. All the colorful chairs in the world wouldn’t give this room the same lift as a ceiling this luscious. It’s a great choice for a beach-style home.

    Painted wood furniture. Give your flea market and yard sale finds a new look with a coat of paint. Consider using all-natural milk paint — depending on how many coats you apply, you can allow some of the wood grain to show through, giving the furniture a fun, chalky, vintage look.

    10. We work many hours that don’t make it onto the bill. From doing research and keeping up with new trends to updating social media, a lot goes into running a decorating business that can never be billed for. Like most entrepreneurs, decorators tend to work way more than 40 hours per week.The Decorologist has this to say: “Even though some might think my hourly fee is high, they don’t realize all the hours that you don’t get paid for. One lady said to me, “It must be nice to get paid so much for so little time.” The truth is I work many, many hours that I am not paid for. It’s not a 9-to-5 where you punch a clock and know what you are going to make every week. I typically work 70-plus hours a week on my business, but I may only be paid for 15-20 hours of that. “I do tons of research to stay current and on-trend, and to learn about new colors and products. I have to spend time and money making up color samples, attending training and workshops, as well as handling my books and billing. I pay an assistant to handle scheduling and returning emails, which used to take me 15-20 hours a week. Then there’s marketing and generating business — when you are your own boss, YOU are the one that has to bring business in. I spend many hours a week blogging, writing for publications and doing social media to keep the engine running and the clients coming. Even though it seems like a designer makes a lot of money, if you compared it to a guaranteed 40-hour-per-week salary you might see things differently.”More: Find a decorator near youNext: 8 things interior designers want you to know about what they do

    If you want your ceiling to appear taller and more expansive, don't paint it white, paint it blue! Cool colors tend to recede, and we associate blue ceilings with the sky above, so it's the perfect color to give you an open-air vibe. I am also digging the mix of cream and soft blue dining chairs in this charming dining room.

    6. Paint your dining chairs — and don't be afraid to mix it up. Break up that boring, matched dining set by painting the chairs in several different colors that work together. Try pale aqua and cream, as shown here, or a mix of pastels or brights for a more adventurous look.Take it further: Paint your ceiling, too, just like the designer of this space did.
