Soften your living space with ready-made drapery panels and transform your lounge from bland to beautiful. If a standard-sized window panel doesnt fit, its time for some DIY home improvement: buy the next size up, and hem the panel so that the drape hangs half an inch to an inch from the floor when hung. Or why not have a go at making your own curtains? Its not as difficult as it sounds, and you can create something utterly unique which perfectly captures the essence of your room.
A fresh lick of paint has the power to transform a room entirely. Choose a colour scheme and buy some paint for the walls. Try to stick to a neutral palette, carefully introducing some colour through accent pieces. Take the accent from elsewhere in the room, such as the curtains, avoiding colours that already dominate blue sofas and blue walls are not a good combination! For a budget update, use the decorators best friend new toss pillows in a shade to match for subtle colour coordination.
