Project Title
Living Room Design with Color and Flow
Project Description
We live in a rehabbed rowhome. We have been here for about four years, but have found it very challenging to design a good flow for our space. Our home has an open concept living/dining room, which is long and narrow.
We like darker woods with clean lines, the use of reclaimed materials, and are open to light industrial finishes (e.g., wrought iron). Though at same time, we don't want to create a mood that is too dark – and would like some balance with whites or colorful accent pieces.

Combined Living/Dining:
Using lighter colors in your medium-sized combined living room dining room will make it feel more airy and bright

For your main color, we chose to use gray because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy. It compliments many colors such as white, blue, and yellow and works well as part of a color scheme in any room.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish
