Hello AT,

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...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

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.

Thanks! Lisa
