This is the norm at home, I hate bland beige walls which have no personality. I prefer a splash of color everywhere so that there is no mistake people know that they are in your home.
I painted my living room a carribean blue which is just beautiful with the West elm green and tan drapes against it.
I love how my furniture which is blue looks against the walls for a monochromatic look. Most of the time I add my white slipcovers to create bold contrast against the walls.
The living room looks great.
Some people would not have painted all walls the same color only an accent wall but it would have been hard to combine a secondary color to this really bold color. The contrast would not have looked right, so I preferred the entire room. Here are photos of my living room
Rearranging a roomSometimes a room can be decorated with both in mind, it an be rearranged
to look beautiful and function well. But there are times that furniture can be placed in an place in room because of the room layout itself. There may be an awkward half wall dividing the room or not enough wall space to place furniture against it. What do you do?
In the case of the half wall, if it is a simple wall with no electrical or plumbing, it should be removed to give you more space in the room for furniture placement. Removing the half wall will instantly make room bigger.
If your space mainly has windows and very minimal wall space,the best solution is too place furniture in L shape position towards the center of room. This will make the space more intimate, casual and inviting. Allow some space from window to sofa to place a console or allow people to walk behind sofa to look out widow and enjoy beautiful views. Allow the space to be focal point by adding a wall mounted TV or a fireplace.
This method allows for both functionality and look great. The space functions and is beautiful . Don't forget to place that old slipcovered recliner in a nice corner away from a wall. Trust me it will look great there too.

I enjoy scrap booking, it is relaxing and fun. My scrapbooks are time capsules for the future I have one for current events, for favorite things, for genealogy and for journaling. It is good to express yourself in a creative way to de stress from every day living. Here are some of my photos
