We'll add some curtains with a modern print on them to the sliding door to break up all the solid colors, and a mirror on the wall near the kitchen table to bring the silvers over to that side of the room (the other side has all of the shiny appliances). Then we'll add some white vases and accessories to brighten it up a bit.
So that is the plan for the kitchen. It's already been partially executed, I am just waiting for my curtains to come in and need to order some accessories and switchplates before I share the "after" pictures. We're onto the first floor bathroom next, so I'll share a little more about that room soon.
