So, what did my design guru say?
Basically, she said: You have an unalterable neutral/pale background. You need to add COLOR in everything else. Add a punch of color over Norah’s dresser.
And she said: You have irreplaceable modern furniture. You need to leave the old-fashioned look and go with modern. Tuck the bedspread under and dot the bed with bright pillows. If you can, put some matching bins on the shelves. Hang something in the air. . .
It just makes so much sense, doesn’t it??
I took that plus the war poster above, which I love, for my inspiration.
