I've renovated over 30 homes, and one thing I never tire of is finding fresh ways to inject elegance into any room.
You'll hear me say this a lot: paint is a simple way to spruce up any space. Don't be afraid to explore with bold colors and try different ideas. If your vision doesn't turn out to be the show-stopper you imagined, just re-paint!
Here, in one of my recent Dallas condo renovations, I painted the walls black and the trim white. I knew the room could handle the dramatic walls, and the trim added a little extra oomph of elegance.
Another way to transform a room is with lighting. This colorful antique chandelier was the perfect centerpiece. The color popped against the dramatic walls and the touches of blue.
