More crown molding.
When my friend, Lori of Lori Lynn Designs was over to do some consulting on our bedroom/bathroom renovation, she suggested doing "bishop's sleeves" on our puddling drapes.
The Mister came up with the idea of painting the island black and putting a marble counter top on it. I secretly asked Lori what she thought before I agreed and she loved the idea.
While Lori was over, she also suggested giving the mantle a more interesting look. I have a tendency of overdoing the symmetry.
