Grand Slam by Phoebe Howard: We decided not to do curtains in this room because the dark wood trim makes quite a statement. We wanted to create a lot of relaxed seating, so there are two sofas and club chairs, a few pairs of ottomans and chairs, and a bench for pull-up seating when there's a crowd. The client wanted orange used in a big way, so we carried it throughout the house. In this room, we used ivory sofas with periwinkle blue and orange colors on the pillows and smaller pieces.
To paint over ANY surface, without sanding, use a product called 'ESP Easy Surface Prep', available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Works well over enamel paint , without having to sand. SAVES HOURS of work. It was recommended to me by a professional painter.
