I'm attaching a photo of my family room and would love any thoughts about how to make it something other than a big brown box.
DH is dead-set against removing the paneling (ie replacing it with drywall – he says too much mess), but I am open to painting it or to decorating solutions that would make it fit with the rest of my more modern home...
The other thing I am really having trouble with is window treatments and I would love any thoughts about colors and style.
The room is pretty much a blank slate right now – the only furniture is a neutral (sand) colored couch and chair – everything else can be purchased to match.
I am considering this rug (attached), but am open to other ideas.
