What's not to love about this contemporary living room? Though defined by crisp white walls and hardwood floors, this space comes to life with a dark green fireplace surround, pink sofa and two bright green chairs. A navy blue area rug keeps the space soft and invites guests to kick off their shoes and stay awhile.
White walls and beams make a perfect background for this living room's earthy tweed midcentury-modern sofa and chair and the large, visually stunning painting whose colors are echoed in the room's accessories.
Multiple chairs and sofas make this open great room the ideal space for entertaining. Vibrant green upholstery paired with pink floral curtains and white painted furniture give this space a decidedly coastal, preppy vibe.
This teen bedroom features graphic prints and painted furniture that can withstand growing pains. Patterned wallpaper creates texture and a mature backdrop behind the bed. A fresh coat of Cityscape Grey adds a shabby chic finish to the bedroom set.
This neutral, traditional bedroom is the picture of tranquility, with its soft painted furniture and waterfront view. A room-size carpet provides softness underfoot, while a fireplace adds warmth and coziness to the space. Neutral walls and trim run throughout the Cape Cod-style home, which rests on Chapoquoit Island in West Falmouth, Massachusetts.
Cottage design is a colorful, comfortable look characterized by pastel, botanical palettes and painted furniture with weathered finishes. Living room furnishings often include iron and wicker chairs covered with stylish floral cushions. You don't have to say goodbye to your favorite pieces of furniture just because they've seen a little wear and tear; the aged surfaces will make them fit in beautifully within a cottage-style space.
When you’re painting furniture with moving parts, like drawers or casters, preparation is really important. Be sure to tape off casters and mask off internal ball bearing glides so that they stay free and clear of paint overspray. No one wants to deal with “sticky” drawers all day long. If your piece has a wood or plastic veneer, give it a light sanding and wipe down before you paint.
