Upstage The Beige

Upstage The Beige

You might be surprised to learn that beige walls and beige carpets can be major suckers-of-light.  It just has nowhere to go! But look how much light is bounced around here with the addition of hardwood floors and super-white walls.  Better After reader Lynn also painted her ceilings a flat white and ditched the beige vertical blinds, which helps spread the love around even more. Besides, think we can all agree that vertical blinds are an abominable scourge to mankind and should be destroyed by any means necessary. It would have been an improvement if she had replaced them with a set of Spongebob sheets. But a trio of classy curtains works just as well.

See her fabulous kitchen makeover I recently featured here!

    Love the makeover, the white is so crisp. And I have a huge crush on that rug. Loved her kitchen makeover too, beautiful.

    So much better. Who ever thought beige on beige and blinds vertical or horizontal were something attractive. The curtain treatment makes the patio door look so much bigger too.

    I love it! Especially the dining table chairs! I’d love some just like that! What style of chair would you call that?

    Bailey – Those are Windsor chairs. I love them, too. I like the chair by the sliding glass doors even more.
