Help! How do I incorporate the deep yellow stained glass window into the decor in the dining room of the house I just bought and am in the process of renovating? I really had wanted to stay away from the yellows in my decor by buying maple kitchen cabinets with a warm pinkish-brown stain and I had thought about staining my oak floors a burgundy shade before refinishing them... The window is an interesting original detail in this 1920 urban brick house and I would hate to ignore it or remove it. My dining room set is a dark walnut colored set in that Mission/Shaker style and the seats are padded with an ivory fabric. There are 2 new long doublehung windows on the opposite wall. Any ideas???
Go to a paint and wallpaper store. Try to find your glass color on one of the paint swatches. They always have the complimentary colors available. Use those colors to accent the window. You can pick up china in that color, accessories, art work, in the accent color. Paint your walls a complimentary color. A wallpaper border with all the colors is another way to go. There are a million possibilities-just have to find the right colors.
