For instance, take a look at thie BEFORE picture. This is a standard, run-of-the-mill dining room. The majority of the room was a neutral taupe color, and the customer tried to add some pizzazz by using a bold burgandy paint on one wall. You may not believe it, but this space had HUGE potentional... just think outside the box!
