Before: A space this grand deserves to look its best, but despite the oversized windows and high trey ceilings, this room felt more crowded and cramped than crowned with beauty. Immediately, the eye is first drawn to the handsome fireplace, then to the immense bookshelf that looks almost out of place with its rich, dark wood. The room feesl dim and bland with echoing tones of beige and tan that minimize the space instead of expanding it.
After: The lighter walls starkly contrast against the dark wood floor, while the crown molding frames the space in clean, crisp lines, adding another sightline to the room and making it feel more spacious. With the wet bar uncovered, it not only becomes more accessible, but it adds a great feature to a space now perfect for entertaining.
