What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sally from SallyTV used to be an interior designer, so she still has thousands of paint chips from old projects on file. She wanted to do something creative with them instead of just tossing them out, so instead of painting her dining room, she used her paint chips to create a unique and textural wall installation. She attached each paint chip to the wall with double-stick tape, leaving some unflattened to look more like a casual inspiration board than formal wallpaper.Read more about Sally's paint chip ideas

Crafty This includes framed wallpaper scraps, elegantly framed kids' art and anything that looks made by hand. This mural made from paint-store chips is a beautiful piece of modern art with that made-by-hand touch.

Style Secret: A Lighthearted TouchColor and whimsy go hand in hand, so don't hesitate to have some fun. Paint each of your kitchen chairs a different shade, spatter your ceiling with wild hues, follow the lead of artist Scott Ingram and drip nail polish down a blank sheet of paper for an original abstract work. Or compile all those paint chips you've collected into a graphic composition such as the one in this dining room — so much fresher than a single painting or a mirror.Color your world: Look for less obvious opportunities to play with color. Maybe you could arrange the books on your shelves by the shade of their spines or create a rainbow effect with your collection of Fiesta ware, glass or china. Or mass together a group of clear or plain white vases, each filled with flowers in a single, strong hue.More:8 Color Palettes You Can't Get WrongMore articles about the power of color

3. Pretend a camera crew is coming over. This is a fun little mental trick to play: Imagine that your favorite home design magazine is sending a full camera crew over to photograph your house for the cover story. What would you hide? How would you change your furniture arrangements or displays? Once you have made a room "camera ready," consider making some of the changes permanent.

Plants are by nature an assemblage of pieces, so they work well with the assemblage on the wall. Also the two plants work to usher in and welcome the energy/traffic. Funny how plants seem to work with all colors and styles.

Style Secret: A Lighthearted Touch Color and whimsy go hand in hand, so don't hesitate to have some fun. Paint each of your kitchen chairs a different shade, spatter your ceiling with wild hues, follow the lead of artist Scott Ingram and drip nail polish down a blank sheet of paper for an original abstract work.
