We've moved recently into a new condo and we've never lived in a white-box kind of place before, so we're struggling a little bit with how to decorate. After many months, our living room is finally perfect and just the way we want it. Now we have to figure out what to do with our bedroom which also serves as a gym, and we'd like the two rooms to be in sync. Our nemesis right now is a very large white wall that we're not sure about - do we paint, hang art, some other idea entirely? As avid readers of Apartment Therapy, we'd love some fresh perspective from you all. I've included pics of our living room and bedroom.
Thanks! Shannon and Daniel

Dear Shannon and Daniel,
We're going to kick this off with two possible suggestions:
1. Make the wall behind your bed an accent wall with the color drawn from your bedding or from the nice green vases you have on the dresser.
2. Along the opposite wall hang a good piece of art over your dresser to emphasize the center of the bedroom on the dresser/bed combination and place a tall houseplant to the right of the dresser to separate the sleeping area slightly from the gym.
This is just a start, and there are certainly more directions you could take.
