Disclaimer- I totally cleaned up before I took these pictures, although, the house pretty much looks like this every night before I go to bed because I am insane. I just can't relax in a messy house, I have tried.
I took the back out of our Ikea shelves (that have survived 3 big moves but will not be surviving a 4th) and painted the front white to create a lighter feeling.
a) I was too tired to paint all the walls
b) most of the walls were bright white when we moved in (which I love)
c) the walls that were not white were peach and red - NOT MY COLOURS (but if you love them that is fine)
d) I actually really like the impact of the almost black and bright white together
