Dear Belma,

You have a lovely living room, but the main thing it is desperately lacking is color and warmth.

You have a nice representation on the poles of color (black and white), but you need to "cut" the black and you don't have any actual warm color and not many mid tones.

We'd recommend doing any one (or all) of the following:

1. paint your walls with a warm off-white (visually warm)
2. consider a bigger rug for your living room (tactile warmth)
3. any artwork or warmer curtains will also help
4. an attractive runner on your dining table will also balance this big dark surface

Anyone else?
