- Paint Treatments. There are so many fun ways to work with paint. Paint is THE cheapest way to change a room and there are a ton of great ideas out there for using paint in unexpected ways. I've been so happy with our painted striped walls. I've also seen some great stencils, like these ones here. The scallops here is just another great idea.

- White furniture. Use white as a unifying color to bring all your different pieces of furniture together. White paint or spray paint is easy to use and you can't go wrong. White furniture will work in any space, any time.
- Splashes of color. The best and most economical way to bring in color is through large pieces that can be changed and isn't a forever investment. Rugs, bedding, artwork, pillows are all high impact, low commitment ways to bring great color into a room.
