    I don't know if i should leave the 'line' between my living room and dining area. These pics came out like shit mostly from the kitchen light (which also needs to go..... ) and it looks green for some reason (maybe its me...). It's actually a grey-ish tan.

    I'm thinking about leaving the living room the color it was, and leaving the line there.

    but, does it look 'half finished' or tacky?


    also, please pardon my mess :p i'm in the middle of moving shit around and re-arranging, so my clothes kinda ended up where ever :p

    The line doesn't do it for me. If you broke the rooms up a bit more you might beable to pull it off, you'd have to put something up to give the person the feeling that the room just ended and a new one started. a basic line isnt enough.

    I'd paint that white something a different color. tan-gray is dull to me. I think you need to use some color. A red would be nice, maybe an accent wall somewhere. ....


    But shit. First thing I'd do get is get rid of the popcorn

    paint the whole wall or make it an accent wall that blends the 2 rooms together.

    accent wall, paint the whole thing, either the color of the dining room, or the color of your living room....

    Just like what we did in the condo...
