I decided to go with a chair rail and crown molding because it's an inexpensive way to dress up a room. A simple paint job wasn't going to do it in here- I really wanted to bring new elements in to change it up.
Because I didn't know what furniture I was going to buy (and I had no idea what our budget would allow) or how I was going to decorate or the color pallete I'd end up chosing, I played it safe in picking paint colors and went with neutral choices.
