Two-tone drapery panels are an easy way to tie together the color scheme of a room.
Vintage textiles are a creative way to spruce up your basic sofa. Try mixing patterns and colors, and layering throws and pillows like they did here.
Slipcovers are a faithful friend, always there to rescue you when the times get tough. Need a new sofa, but can't afford one? Measure your sofa length and width and look for a standard slipcover in the closest size in a neutral color.
Drapery panels in standard sizes are affordable and can bring softness and pattern into a room. If the height of your windows falls between two sizes, simply buy the longer drapes and have your local dry cleaner hem them to fall an inch or two above the floor.
Paint is your friend! I can't go on enough about how much impact a little wall color will have on your space. I love the pop of green in this entryway, so full of personality!
Spray painting furniture is an affordable way of giving new life to existing pieces of furniture. The armchair pictured here was formerly a faded grey chair long past it's prime.
Re-using or re-purposing items is an affordable and green practice. An old crate is re-purposed as a serving tray, great idea!
