WALL: BM Pine Green in Aura (richer) DOOR: SW Real Red, semi-gloss. (good to: BM Jade Garden a deep watery teal) For energy added chartreuse dynamic red. "think beyond "dark" "light" paint, more about mood. Room is "light" if gets lots of light. If not, it's never going to be light. I prefer to bring in boldness brightness with deeper wall color to keep it from getting too serious. Best advice - try to define what mood you want when selecting colors use hues that support that mood.
No doubt about it: we love a good IKEA LACK hack. We've seen a quite a few, but Noelle's coffee table transformation has us green with envy! he color! The corners! That kitty! We love everything about it.
