Soft gray walls emanate a neutral, relaxing backdrop. Try Reflection by Sherwin-Williams. Supplement a beyond lighting with building and list lamps, providing suitable light for reading. Reorient a chair to make improved use of a space, with a seating along a longer wall. Go with a sectional, rather than a adore chair and sofa, for casual, gentle seating with a smaller footprint. Opt for a set of 4 storage ottomans instead of a coffee table. They assistance enclose confusion and can be used as additional seating. Add tone and celebrity with tradition Roman shades on a windows. A long, low media console provides storage but strenuous a room.
