My Dad, a physician owned a gorgeous victorian office/home that's over 100 years old and we lived in during our younger years. It's been on the market quite a while, so we've decided to spruce it up giving it much needed help. Pictured below is the waiting room for the patients, check out that woodwork!! We are planing on tiling the floors but leaving the woodwork as is because its so beautiful, so I choose colors to work with the wood but also break it up a bit! This is a very traditional classic design to stay as timeless as possible and appeal to the masses; any other thoughts or ideas? 
By the way this could easily translate into a living or dining room!
