You know what this room needed? A fireplace. Wouldn’t a fireplace look great on that big blank wall — hold up. There WAS a fireplace in there. It was just completely camouflaged by being the exact same shade of beige sadness as the rest of the room.
The whole space was crying out for brightness and light. And that window was pining for a window seat, and the big empty walls desperately desired some built-in storage, and the carpet just wanted to get the heck out of there altogether. Boom! Wishes: granted. All thanks to Jamie at Better With Age.
