    Barn wood shelves and a barnwood chair rail.

  • I like the blue wall. I would change just a few things. The way it is now, it seems your armchair is the focal point of the room.

    A simple idea could be move the armchair out of that place and add a nice sideboard or dresser between your bookcases. Then lower the mirror until its top is about 6 inches above the top of your sideboard.

    Here is an inspiration picture with that layout.

    Good luck!

    Not sure the blue paint colour really works in the room, I know it might sound boring but a white or even a very light grey would look better.

    Mirror looks a bit too small on its own, would be better to have a larger mirror or maybe even a gallery of framed prints/canvas. You can get some good ideas here:

      I think you're right about the color. When we moved in 7 years ago this was the first room I painted. It was supposed to be more gray, but it turned out blue. Also agree about the mirror size. It's one of the reasons I'm asking for some ideas.

    How about paint it a nice navy blue or dRker blue to accent the lighter blue then get a big picture

    Hello Alisa,

    Have you considered a shiplap accent wall?

    Some of the big box hardware stores in my area are now stocking the shiplap strip panels.
