One of the things that sold us on this house was the open-concept floor plan, not exactly common in the 80s. The kitchen, dining area, and living room are all very open to each other. But it was a whole lot of brown. Brown walls. Brown trim. Brown floors.
We got to work painting this area right away. The walls are Behr Pensive Sky and the trim is Behr Ultra Pure White. We switched out the Pizza Hut style chandelier for something a little more my style. We also changed out the ceiling fan for one with a brushed bronze finish. I also made valence curtains to hide the blinds on the french doors. The fabric matches the cafe curtain in the kitchen - Waverly Stripe Ensemble in Robins Egg. That's really about it. As you can see - paint goes a loooong way!
