DO Think wallpaper again. We’ve come a long way since the 1970’s orange and avocado green mushroom-laden prints 🙂 There are tons of new and fresh wallpaper designs out there – from updated grass cloth to stunning beaded papers (via Maya Romanoff).
DON’T Use primary colors for your overall paint color. Unless you run a preschool out of your home that is. Choose an overall neutral, and accent certain walls with color.
DO Paint over that old paneling instead of completely removing it (which may be virtually impossible anyway). This will give your room a bright, new look instantly!
DON’T Try faux finishing yourself. Leave this to the true artists and professionals. It’s much harder than it looks – trust me!
