A bold living room
We love pattern and colour in the livng room, but that doesn't mean you have to commit to a bright blue sofa or a giant patterned rug. A high-impact space is within everyone's budget. Start with neutral big-ticket items and go bold with more affordable, colourful accessories. stevenandchris-livingroom-displa.jpg
Pretty mementoes
Show off your prettiest mementoes in clear glass boxes. You can change up the contents on a whim! HomeSense, from $10. stevenandchris-livingroom-sculpt.jpg

Global flair
Create a feature wall with some global flair. Pair store-bought steals with treasures from your own travels. West Elm, from $129. stevenandchris-livingroom-wallar.jpg
Creative wall art
Be adventurous when  decorating your walls - don't just stick to paintings and framed photos. These handwoven bowls create an eye-catching display when hung up in a group. West Elm, $49. stevenandchris-livingroom-lamp.jpg
Sleek table lamp
Big box stores offer all kinds of stylish lighting options. We found this sleek number in a brush-steel finish at Walmart. Walmart, $12.

Accent pillows
Accent throw pillows are the easiest and least expensive way to add character to your space. Go bold and always mix and match! West Elm, from $34.

Rich wall colours
Hit up your local paint store's mis-tint section for great deals - up to 50 percent off! Here, we selected a deep, rich blue (Jazz Standard P5O12-75D) to allow the main neutral living room furniture to take centre stage. Para Paints.
