1 Paint it forward
Craving a drastic new living room look? A quick lick of paint begets mega results. Layer in some inexpensive coordinating accessories and, despite having the same old furniture, you'll swear it's a whole new space.
2 Cushion toss up
Toss cushions can be as visually vibrant as artwork, so don't hesitate to pick a palette and go bold with a mix of solids and patterns for a presentation that packs a punch.
3 Making history
Or, if you can't make history, fake it! Give your living room that tried-and-true traditional appeal with the addition of wall panelling from your local hardware store.
