Live in a material world
Beautiful fabric can pull a room together. Here are some ways to use it.
-Put cloth directly on the walls.
-Drape colorful cloth from a rod suspended at the top of the wall to create a headboard, camouflage an unsightly vent or cover a window with a black-alley view. .
I screen your, screen
Angled across a corner, a folding screen “adds a lot of drama to a room,” plus you can use the hidden area to store a vacuum cleaner, ironing board or anything else you might want to disguise. Indulge your do-it-yourself talents by constructing the screen, or check out home, discount and import stores for less expensive models.
Lighten up a room
A variety of low-voltage options in all prices can be plugged into outlets or installed in place of existing fixtures. These include spotlights, dangling lights, can lights and tiny track lights similar to what you might find in a gallery.
Clean It and Clear It
If you want a fresh look, remove small knick-knacks from shelves and tables. Display only your favorite objects now and store the rest to rotate when you need a change.
