My living room...
...walls are light blue with gray undertones
...couch is tan
...fireplace is white
...wood accents are dark
Basically, my living room has nearly identical colors to this one:
So what's missing from mine that makes this one so much more cozy and bright? One, which I am beating to death on this blog lately - a rug. But I think more importantly, natural light! Maybe I just don't see my living room enough during the day since I'm at work, but I feel like even with the huge picture window we just don't get this kind of daylight. This room also uses pink as an accent color, but I would bet I couldn't get Dan to go for that!
