What They Did:
- Raised the ceiling into the attic to make the room feel more spacious.
- Flanked the hearth with an additional bookshelf designed to accomodate the television.
- Used white paint, fresh finishes, and light fabrics to update the dark space.
- Mixed furnishing they'd collected with less expensive finds.
