Help! Clueless Young Male! Help!

wstjean42June 13, 2012


I am a 23 yo male who is clueless when it comes to decorating. I have a new apartment in Boston that needs painting. The problem: VERY Little Natural light in the Living room (One Small window). Need help picking a color that will brighten it, and isnt completely girly. And it has dark wood trim that I cant paint! Need Help! I like Blues, but not sure that will work.

Any lightning tips would help as well.

Any Recomendations?

Thanks, Will

Will, for your combination of issues, you really should post this in the Home Decor forum; you'll get the most feedback there.

Maybe, but the paint forum would appear much more masculine than Home Decor.

LOL ionized, I almost put in, ''don't worry, it's not all women over there,'' but I didn't want to sound sexist!

Thanks, sometimes I get myself in trouble because no one can see my tongue in my cheek in posts. I could not resist responding to "girly".

wstjean42, just pick a light color that you like, how about white? You can do the walls in a light color and the ceiling in white.
