Are you loving the fresh look but have a dark house? Paint is a quick way to brighten up a room. Light colours reflect more light, however it can look stark. Consider a white skirting board colour & an off-white for the walls. This still gives personality.
Fix, replace or add more artificial lighting. This may be lamps or replacing globes for stronger illumination. Try to get more natural light. Clean the window & minimise window coverings on the inside & out. Or add a mirror to the wall which reflects the natural light around the room.
