Hang Ghost Frames "To add faux architectural interest in the living room, cover one blank wall with a collection of cheap frames—find them at discount stores or flea markets. Paint the frames the same shade as the wall color—it's an effect that mimics texture. Choose a high-gloss paint finish on the frames to add shimmer and sophistication and to make them pop from the wall."

DIY: Decorative Wainscotting. Use panel moulding to add personality in a room. Wainscotting painted in a neutral shade similar to the wall colour adds texture in a room. To visually break up the space while still maintaining a classic charm, use contrasting colours or, paint the wainscotting and cover the upper-half of the wall with wallpaper. The moulding works well in entryways, hallways and major rooms.
