Mary Grace and Manesh’s living room was literally a blank slate: since moving into their new home a year and a half ago, they had left it completely empty.

Candice’s challenge was to create a room that meets Mary Grace’s desire for sparkle yet remains masculine enough that Manesh will feel comfortable basking in front of his big screen TV.

To start, Candice has satisfied Manesh with a dark accent wall that's bold and beautiful. The stormy shade lends a masculine touch, without making the space feel like a man-cave.  

Next, the comfy sectional in a netural (read: not-girly) shade balances the sooty walls, and even has a spot for Manesh to fall asleep in watching sports. As a bonus, it's on sale for $1359.00.

Nature-inspired handmade Etsy wall art matches, and further cements the space's manly aesthetic. 

But what about Mary Grace? Sleek, pearl white accent pieces, like this Home Decorators Collection bench and Lumens vase, help harmonize the dark walls while adding a feminine feel.  

Plus, Candice didn't neglect her request for sparkle: take a look at that lovely ceiling light (only $179!)! By placing it in front of a mirror, she ensures it shines and brightens the space.
