This is a old villa renovated in 1800’s style. The big white wooden house with the beautiful window panels blend into the winter landscape of Brastad, Bohuslän. The house is a so-called cutting sheds and looks like it has been here for ages, or at least from the merchant’s era in the late 1800s. Visit skonahem(Swedish) for more info.

Home Color Scheme–Update Your Room With Paint

Paint is the least expensive way to change the look of a room, whether you want to modernize your living room or make your bedroom more serene. A fresh paint job enlivens a ho-hum interior, but picking the right color (or combination of colors) and figuring out where best to put it and how much to use can prove perplexing.
Dining Room Refresh Yellow and Blue
Dining Room Refresh

A palette of bold colors and do-it-yourself paint projects give this dining room a fresh look. We choose two shades of blue for the table and chairs and created a two-tone effect to add interest to the furniture. Separate the painted and non-painted portions of the chairs and table with painter’s tape. Semi-gloss paint works best on furniture because of it’s easy-to-clean finish, so apply several coats.

Color a Table Beautiful Green

Color a Table
Unfinished wood is the perfect canvas for paint. Sand the surface lightly, remove the sanding dust with a tack cloth, and then spray the piece with one thin coat of primer and several thin coats of paint, allowing each coat to dry before adding the next. Protect the painted surface with two coats of polyurethane.

Craft a Place Setting Lovely Chair

Craft a Place Setting
Chair backs coated with chalkboard paint provide erasable name “cards” for a dinner party. To take the theme even further, use the paint on a tray to create a menu board.

Blue Cabinets and Yellow Wall

Update the Furniture
If the wood surface is already painted or varnished, remove dirt or wax buildup with a household cleaner and rinse. Sand rough areas and wipe away dust with a tack cloth. Apply two coats of stain-blocking primer and allow it to dry between coats. Roll or brush on two coats of latex paint in the direction of the wood grain. Use a brush to finish the surface with smooth strokes.

Metal Chair Painting

A New Life for Metal
Clean the surface with a stiff wire brush to remove flaking paint or rust. Wipe with a damp cloth and let it dry. Prime with metal primer and let dry, or use a paint specially formulated with rust inhibitors. Apply several thin coats of paint. If using spray paint, hold the can about 10 – 12 inches from the surface as you spray. Shake the can during the application to keep the color mixed. Spray lightly to avoid paint runs. [Read more →]

Interior Color Scheme–Adding Black To Your Room

Black Berries

Black Berries

Black storage ottomans and side tables add a sleek silhouette to this red kitchen and living room. Don’t underestimate the power of graphic pillows to pump up a simple color scheme. Here, cherry blossom pillows keep a charcoal-gray sofa looking chic, not drab.

Let your fun, funky spirit come out with an outrageous wall color. Just tame it with touches of black: a sleek picture frame and mismatched black chairs do the trick.
One-Touch Wonder
One-Touch Wonder
A room as cheery as this country dining room needs a place for the eye to rest — simple black dining chairs fit the bill without calling too much attention to themselves.

Start Small
Start Small
If you’re nervous about adding black to a room, start small by coating minor architectural details in black. The inside walls of a built-in and portions of the wall set apart by molding are ideal for these small touches.

Two Shades of Black

Mixing styles in black is a definite can-do. Here, a new-again damask print in black and white sits atop an antique black table. The shared colors pull them together for an elegant look.

White kitchen-diner
Rustic furniture and vintage accessories add warmth and character to a light, white kitchen-diner. Use reclaimed wood to bring a touch of natural colour to the scheme. (via: livingetc.com)

A country table and chairs are flanked by elegantly upholstered French bergeres in this dining room. A chic rug adds comfort and style, while still allowing the wood floors to offset the wood dining set. A traditional armoire in the corner creates storage space. The checkered curtains add texture — and privacy, when necessary. (via: kitchenbathideas.com)
