What would you do with a livingroom like this if you had just purchased this house. A lovely room -don't you agree? I think I'd paint all the trim a bright shiny white, the walls a matte french gray, refinish the original herringbone wood floor to a dull sheen and possibly put in a rather simple limestone surround for the fireplace. Definitely keep all that beautifully spotted antique mirror, especially the really damaged one above the fireplace -and hang a painting centered in front of it. Your turn!
