Question: I have a small flat screen TV in my living room, but I have no idea how to display it in a tasetful way. I don't want to make the TV the centerpiece of the room, and I am not into cabinets much. I don't like TVs hung on a wall, so that limits me a bit. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Have an idea?

Question: My husband and I recently bought a house, and we love everything about it except the entry. Its 1m wide (the width of the front door) but 3m long. It's also a major arterial point, with much of the house accessed through it. It's very bland and inhospitable, but I just can't think what to do with it. Furniture won't fit, which is also a dilemma because we need storage. Have an idea? Click here to answer
Question: Are there any inexpensive ways to decorate an apartment? I can't paint the walls or tear up the ugly carpet. I don't want to put too much money into it as I'm saving to buy a house - I just can't stand how boring it all is though. Have an idea? Click here to answer.
Question: My design dilemma concerns having a dark downstairs. I purchased a home about three years ago that has a very large patterned tile floor with dark paneled walls, and an ugly rock fireplace. I desperately want to lighten up the place and be able to make color changes throughout the seasons. The business of the living room won't allow much the way it is currently. Any advice would be appreciated. Have an idea? Click here to answer.

Question: I have a spacious bedroom, but it gets very little natural light. I also have black furniture. To top it off, it's currently painted a deep purple, which is beautiful, but my bedroom is very cavelike. I am looking for color options that have some interest and warmth, but also will lighten it up a bit. Click here to answer.
