Interior designers suggests honing in on one or two areas in your space. Love color? Paint one wall your favorite color and let everything pop! Love texture? Create a statement wall with some appeal. Try wood strips from your local home improvement store, wallpaper with some texture and fake brick paneling can enhance your room and make everything look better.

Opt for a neutral slipcover and add personality with fun, colorful pillows. Get influenced by the wall color, the rug or even the artwork. Mix patterns but keep the colorways somewhat consistent.

One major design mistake is buying a rug that’s too small for your space. Your carpet should go underneath the furniture pieces, at least the front legs. Otherwise it makes the room look smaller. Choose a nice woven or patterned rug.
