Try using mirrors instead of inexpensive prints for art, as mirrors make a space brighter and seem larger, they also come in many shapes and sizes for a good mood enhancer!

Yes, it's back! Hope you didn't throw yours out :-)

Keep one good traditional oriental rug but be daring and switch out your dining area and living area rugs to a tweedy sisal or a large hair on hide piece. Room will seem instantly perky and happy. Be daring and do it!
Change out the old family landscape hanging over the mantel to a bold contemporary piece with lots of primary colors to intensify that focal area.
And show your friends you have pizazz. Don't be afraid to use a sleek box type frame in silver or black.
Yes I still do wallpaper :-) And love it in small rooms! Try Candice Olsen or Carl Robinson for unique patterns.
I always say: "Save for pillows, don't be stingy". Here... good pillows worth every penny! I like big bold geometric pillows, mixed with a touch of fur or leather. And yes, leopard still works too. Spare no expense here, trust me! Don't forget to trim your pillows with crystal beads, tassels and maybe even feathers or extra punch and detail.
