The Great Room --- A Work In Progress

With lighting in place, this space is now ready for decorating. Headers and window coverings, a wall quilt and photographs, and accessories with a touch of barn red color come next. Then the touches that will give a taste of home: a sewing basket, coasters, dried flower arrangements, and splashes of accent color. Working with these walls have been a challenge for me. Brent loves the knotty, chisled wood look of the real wood paneling. I would prefer to break it up with wallpaper below chair-railing on the bottom, or something else that would detract from so much wood! But, it's all about compromise, and we have decided to leave the walls in their original state and add some color and accent to it through accessories. It's a big job, but it comes next and really should be challenging and fun. It's cozy, but plain right now. I'm looking forward to the finishing touches.
