    i live next door, and i've never seen more than one room of your house! you need to let me in some day! lol

    my personal preference; i love color on black. it gives color a wonderful boost. so, i'd keep the black. i'd used the purple as highlights through out the whole house, so, i'd chose purple flowers, with one or two reds and blues thrown in for contrast - or go the other way - purple flowers with white or black here and there. Best test is to put it down, take a look, and let your internal artist cheer or boo.

    i love the general layout of the house, although you only show one floor. easy to get around, a good layout for a museum.

    i've been looking for a large bench rubble. looks like i should have looked closer to home! :p very nice collection!

    I would concur on that...the stark contrast is not needed in this case and I think is detracting greatly from your museum items on display, and causing your rubble and other display counters to have an odd "floating in space" look.

    I would tone down the curtains as well, both the number & the massive "color blocking". Keep some panels white, and some with the intense color, maybe even just dye the valance portions.

    hmmm wa shoping the curtains added to a sort of regal feeling but i take all ponts on board. Ihave been umming and ahhhh'ing over the black ones but i may keep the purple as a kinda red carpet ( i just hate red :p)

    will finish off some more and then post again and see how we are fairing, improving or making a right royal mess haha

    ty for all posts

    i'd have to agree on removing the black gozas. its too stark imo. i

    f you are keeping the purple, maybe make the purple a single goza with a muted color bordering it. so it would be muted color - purple - muted color. that way its not so stark and isolated.

    it'll be a great accent color.
