    Love the white with dark background on shelving.

    lovely dining room. These materials turn up depth, dimension, and contrast in a saturated space: weathered woods, woven rattans, plush velvety, light catching crystals. Bright idea: a tall table in a living room doubles as a dining area. The dark hues set stage for texture

    LOVE built-in buffet and tongue-n-groove ceiling

    great shelves, lighting & desk

    Great tip. When styling any shelving unit, remember to keep breathing room between objects to keep the shelves from looking busy and cluttered.

    I like the idea of painting an accent wall and then making built-in book shelves behind it! We could totally do a red one! Apple green + light blue.

    Paint the back of the bookcase a darker color. Makes the white and all of the objects stand out more. Really love this look

    Best All-Around Neutral ~ On her company’s Facebook page, Eisen calls Stonington Gray (in flat finish) her staging secret and says that brokers and buyers alike constantly ask about it. She describes it as the perfect remedy for white walls, and says, “It has a unique ability to compliment every color scheme.”
