Paint is a cost-effective way to spruce-up any wall. Here is a great example of a small accent that really brings warmth and character to the family room.
This is the first area you see when entering the home. It is the formal living and dining space and has vaulted ceilings. This space was very dark, even in the middle of the day. I added a touch of "downy" yellow and the room immediately brightened-up without being blinding or too overwhelming. The subtle change brought out the white woodwork as well.
