Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe outline of a bookcase is painted onto the far wall to add an architectural element to the room.
A bookcase is painted on the wall above the fireplace by tracing books and shelves with white paint. This unique idea adds architectural detail to the space without weighing down the room with heavy bookcase. A curtain is added between the living room and dining room to give the room definition, while still keeping it open enough for Jeff.

Chayse's Design Tips:

1. Paint trim antique white to give your room a classic style.

2. Any style of furniture can look contemporary with dark stain or paint.

3. Sage green with dark brown can go contemporary or classic.
