Do you ever.......



Consider painting your furniture the same color as the wall? I know it sounds radical at first if you have never done it, but it really helps with the overall continuity of the space. I have done this several times in my old house.


When I was painting the nursery for my then infant second boy- Will, I decided that the since the room was on the small side, that I wanted to make it seem bigger. My solution was to paint the bureau the same color as the wall that I was then painting exactly behind where I was going to put the bureau. The bureau was thrift store find so I felt I had nothing to lose. I don't have pictures of that room to show you here, but the above example is an extremely elegant display of some eclectic ingenuity and the picture below is a sophisticated nursery with the black dresser painted the same black as the wall!
