Have you struggled with how to bring your current drab rooms up to par without spending major bucks?
If you have, you are certainly not alone!
Here are a few sure-fire ideas to make your lackluster room hip in a hurry:
Don't be afraid to mix modern with traditional. Adding in some quirky pieces makes a room current, but timeless. The yellow mirror paired with the traditional drapery panels and artwork really ramps up the style quotient in this room.
Accessorize with bright, funky pillows to update your room's look. This sofa is uber-traditional, but the bright mix of pillows really brightens it up.
If you really want to wake up a snoozy room, try some high-energy wallpaper on a feature wall. Big patterns in bright colors are all the rage right now. Oh my goodness....I am in love with these wallpapers and how they add an incredible amount of style to an otherwise plain room!
If you're the type of gal who's afraid of commitment, you can always go halfway and frame out a section of wall to add your wallpaper to.
Use brights, modern fabrics through your room to add splashes of up-to-date colors and patterns. In addition to pillows, you can add punches of color with window treatments, book covers, ottomans, etc. Using a combination of florals and geometrics helps to ensure the patterns will work with each other.
Reupholstering an ottoman is something that is within the realm of most DIYers, and if you use a bright, modern fabric, it's a great way to spice up the whole room.

And last, but definitely not least, pair down your accessories so that they really count. Weed out the dusty, dated, and dingy old things. Choose your details with care because they make a huge impact.
