Bring on the Branches
Put branches in a container. You could even then go to Home Depot and get a small spotlight to light them from below. It casts fantastic shadows into empty corners.
Paint the Lampshades
Buy an inexpensive paper shade and paint it red. A red shade makes the light incredibly romantic and flattering.
Rehang Your Artworks
Put pieces in unusual places, like above a door. Lean some against a mirror. Hang several in an asymmetrical collage, at least three inches apart, like how these antique mirrors are in a Georgia beach house.
Refresh the Bath
Change your shower curtain, or just the liner. Add fragrant candles and a small bouquet. Clear the counters of everything except your prettiest essentials.
Display Children's Art
Display drawings in a colorful frame, or in a white frame with a colored mat. Hang them in an otherwise unimaginative space. They're full of spirit — and meaningful.
Organize with Trays
Corral items like TV remotes on a tray on the coffee table. Put bottles, glasses, and other accouterments on a tray in the living or dining room, like in this Georgia beach house
