How to update my 1970's ranch house interior to a more update brighter
on May 12, 2017
Pictures please. Impossible to comment on just words without seeing the footprint of your home and what needs to be altered to serve you best.
on May 13, 2017
Yes definitely need to see pictures to generate ideas
on May 13, 2017
if no pictures - very light grey or tan for paint is the easiest way to go. To make the interior brighter, clean and crisp.

mirrors are good ways to "open" a spAce up and add brightness if placed correctly.

BM Revere Pewter painted walls and gloss white trim did the trick for us! Semi sheer white IKEA curtains hung floor to ceiling. pops of silver, black and gold in mirrors, frames and lamps and my fave colors accenting in pillows and throws. We bought a 1920s house that hadn't been redecorated since 70s and our style is vintage modern playful...?...It has to make me happy if it wants a place in my home
