I Want This Room To...

This is my family room...and I love it. I love rich fabrics, lots of patterns, lots of different textures, not matchy-matchy, golds, ambers, blacks, shades of chocolate, oranges and greens. It's really cozy in the winter time due to the leather sofa and of all of the darker colors...which I love...but now that spring is here, I am feeling the need to lighten up a bit...I want this room to feel cool and breezy too. So....I am asking for advice. What should I do to put a spring in this room's step?



THIS GIRL NEEDS SOME HELP!!

Wow! That room is awesome. Girl, you are something else. I love the ottoman/coffee table. Maybe you could switch out the tray on it for something white and light and add some light fun pillows? I agree with adding a plant or arrangement...Love it just the way it is though:).

That room is beautiful. Maybe some turqoise accents?
I am too colorful, so probably not a whole lot of help.

Yes, I spent $50 on those letters. Was that too much? They are 12 inches and JUST what I had been looking for. Was that dumb?

I think the muted greens and muted blues would looks great as an off-set with all the dark. Definitely an arrangement would bring in spring! Looks like you have fantastic taste and what ever you choose will be wonderful!
