Before...although the wall color was bright, it just wasn't doing anything for me. I did realize that light colors hide imperfections. So, when you have plaster walls from 1938, best to stay with a light wall color.
After. Walls painted in "Quicksilver" by Sherwin Williams--a fantastic blue gray. Remember my post on ikat pillow covers? These were from etsy obviously. Also, notice the iron side table for a little industrial. I am in serious love with my newest painting set in the antique frame that I refurbished. It is available for purchase here. The ultra fab coffee table wasn't my original pick, but I decided to save a few dollars getting this clear lucite piece so I could splurge on a great gold bamboo bar cart.
One last addition may be adding a silver reading lamp like the one found in the living room of The Zhush.
