My daughter Janice learned about decorating with lots of color the hard way. True, the “seaside taffy” tones of pink, aqua, and yellow blended beautifully on her walls, but the space felt smaller. Now she wants her walls (every one of them) painted a very pale gray with bedspread and curtains to match. Janice is away at college (Cal State Chico) but we’re hiring a painter to “neutralize, ha ha” her room and my office. Yes, I tired of the olive green walls and want the light gray in here also.
The living room below appears larger than it really is because the pale sofas blend into the floor and walls. The single cranberry chair doesn’t overwhelm the room and picks up tones of the sofa pillows.
A mirrored wall is a classic room expander in the dining room below.
Isn’t the large mirror in this tiny bath a space fooler?
