Welcome to Anything Pretty Headquarters.
It would look more realistic if HGTV was on the TV and a glass of red wine was on the desk.....but I trust you can use you imagination.
The original color in this room really wasn't bad but the trim was, of course. Also the crown molding was really puny and there was no overhead fixture which made the room very dim at night.
This room was originally designed to be a formal living room, but we knew would never use it for that. We are not that kind of people.
So we tried to make a home office that was functional but pretty enough to be by the front door. Eventually we will probably add french doors, but since the doors are an odd size that will be pricey.
I am toying with the idea of adding a rug, but I am not sure if it would make the space look too small. Also I am torn about how I feel about rugs on top of carpet. The color in this room is Sherwin Williams Ivoire. I also tried Blonde, but it was too yellow for what I was picturing.
I have tried yellows before, and I have to admit, this is the first time I got it right. On the paint chip it looked really cream and not bold enough for my tastes. But on the wall it really reads yellow and turned out perfectly. Who knew yellow could be so difficult?
