#1 Hang plates on walls.
Plates that come in interesting colors create a wall of interest. You can even combine colors, textures, and sizes. Just attach wire plate hangers and hang the plates on picture nails.
#2 Group your candles.
Candles look great when they’re grouped together, especially when they’re on a spacious surface. Take note: the bigger the surface, the bigger the candles. You can even position four or five pillars of candles with different heights in the same color.
#3 Move the wicker indoors.
Even if you get inexpensive wicker furniture, it will take on a different and lighter feel when you place them inside your home. An extra tip: put them in a well-lit part of a room and mix with your more traditional furniture!
#4 Re-purpose your furniture.
Re-purpose your rickety chair as a bedside table. You can position a tray on the chair to hold a vase, a reading lamp, an alarm clock, and the like.
#5 Create your very own art.
Art, whether photocopied, ripped from a magazine, or created from your own hand, will look elegant when it floats between two pieces of glass. The color of the wall will show through the glass, creating the look of a custom mat.
#6 Bring out the color.
Amp up a room with bright color. Although you can bring in a burst of color with a rug, you can use something more subtle as well, like flowers.
#7 Tap into your natural self.
Warm up a space by using shells and other beach stuff to create a comfortable and rustic area.
#8 Widen a space.
If you have a tight space, widen it using a large mirror. Prop the mirror (should be around 3/4s as tall as the wall) unto a wall. This is a classic trick to create faux space.
#9 Paint a fake headboard.
Here’s a pretty easy paint project. Paint a fake headboard using just USD 20 and no floor space!
#10 Brighten blank walls with canvases.
To brighten up blank walls, hang painted canvases. You can even go big by filling an entire wall with it.
#11 Create a picture gallery.
Look through your albums for the best pictures and place them in frames with a similar theme. Voila—an elegant but warm wall!
#12 Add interest with a wrapped lamp shade.
Create interest by wrapping a store bought lamp shade with interesting textures. You can use gift wrapper or any interesting piece of cloth and glue it to the lamp shade.
#13 Paint that mirror.
To define a space, add a mirror to create light and drama. Just coat that mirror with paint or spray it on.
#14 Use different colored lamp shades.
You can create a strong statement with colored lamp shades. You can limit yourself to one color per room and even to neutral tones in white and parchment.
#15 Stack those books.
If your shelves aren’t deep or high enough to accommodate your huge books, just stack them on a flat surface like an end table or a bench. Remember, piled books draw the eye up.
