In the living room of a house in California wine country, designer Stephen Shubel painted the stone fireplace and Currey Company's Rainforest chandelier a powdery white, and the walls and ceiling in a pale gray. Painted stone can look good, I guess.
Currently Obsessed with Navy Velvet Sofas. But I think the grey stained (or dry brushed) paint ed bookshelves might be just the right way to tone down the white bookcases in the middle of the main room!
I love white paned windows! Couch for comfort. Rustic coffee table adds textures but is light in design. White paint keeps room fresh. Cushions, rug and throw with ink blue colours adds warmth to neutral tones. Plus patterns.
