We have a chevron wood wall in our family room. I have no idea what to do with it. Right now it is stained an orangeish brown color.... very dated and dark. Same thing with the fireplace,
the brick is dark red and just dated looking. What do you think? What would you do? We installed dark hardwood floors throughout the entire home and the walls in here are painted French Gray- a Blue/Gray. Help!! Here is a link to my pinterest board to kind of show my style and what I like: http://pinterest.com/ashopaholicmom/for-the-...

My first thought was to incorporate lighting. Then I checked your page and saw lots of
lights!! I'd add crown molding with rope lighting underneath to accentuate the wood. Then maybe add lots of nature (all cool colors)... succulant shadow boxes/ linen matted pics/etc. Uplighting from below can also "lighten" things up, no pun intended.
My new tomato trellis is working out quite nicely. Very easy to see and maintain the plants and decorative too! That gingerbread molding on the top is 158 years old and my husband fashioned the galvanized tops by hand.
