Q: My husband and I are moving to an apartment that we are absolutely crazy about. It has a fantastic open floor plan, approximately 1300 square feet, and is built into the second story of a 1900s carriage house that is situated next to our to-be landlords' stone mansion. I love it for a million different reasons. My question relates to the color of the living room area.
Initially, I was thinking that by repainting the walls white or off-white, it would really open up the space even more and make it feel bigger. But on the other hand, as the color started to grow on me a little bit, I wasn't sure if repainting the walls white would complement the white slanted ceilings and dark wood accents (exposed beams and flooring) very well.
My decor style involves a lot of rustic metallics, wood, reds, purples and yellows, so I don't think the color of the wall as it is right now would clash with how I plan on styling the space.
