Adam sent in a email: I recently moved into a new rental property and I have been given permission to get creative with my living space. I have been scouring the net and bookstores looking for inspiration but I wanted to ask around and see what some other people thought of my room and how they would decorate it....

I realize the fireplace is a focal point in the room but it is non functioning and has been blocked off so I'm not sure what I can do with it. I can paint the walls and floor whatever color I want, and I am leaning towards a clean look with grey and white as my colors, but I'm also wanting to go bold with a red. I would love any advice people are willing to give me on what colors to use and how to make the space as creative as possible! I am a photographer and living in a place that inspires me is very important to me.

Please share your ideas with Adam in the comments below...thanks!
