Removing the heavy bookcases on either side of the fireplace made an immediate difference in the transformation of this living room by Designer Bailey Austin Bird. Removing existing window shutters added much more natural light, which created a warmer, lighter feeling space. Patterned sheers paired with the solid charcoal panels make the draperies stand out as both functional and beautiful.
