    • Advice for modern makeover?, I decorated our living room a few years ago and since then my taste has modernized a bit. I'm thinking of repainting the living space and kitchen with something a bit more updated. The oak has to stay. Looking for some grays to contrast with the oak.

Any links to colors or accessories would be greatly appreciated!, Living Rooms Design
