Enlarge Space with White A narrow living room escapes feeling constrained thanks to white walls, a tall vaulted ceiling, pale floors, bare windows, and white upholstery. A long tapestry on the fireplace wall emphasizes the vertical dimension, while a gray wing chair and espresso brown coffee table ground the space.
This powder-blue living room is from Better Homes & Gardens. Here's how they describe it: "Colors don't need to be bright or bold to make a big impact in a space. In this room, powder blue walls and a white fireplace make a pleasant pair. Identical straight-back chairs and ottomans pull color from the walls, while decorative rosy pink pillows add a touch of warmth. For a little shine, choose a bejeweled chandelier to complete an elegant look."
