After

After its makeover, the room has a traditional yet modern look. The dark mossy green wall color is a great backdrop for the contemporary white couch, which in turn creates a nice contrast to all the dark furniture pieces. Lighter-colored accessories, including a new area rug, balance the dark walls and adding some much-needed texture. Since the fireplace is nonworking, depth and interest are added to the space in the form of vases of varying heights and shapes. A very simple, thin picture shelf is hung over the mantel. Its wood tone and that of the new mirror above it match the coffee table and side table. The TV now rests at eye level on the wall opposite the couch.
