Easy Decorating Ideas

To redecorate a room, there’s no need to buy new furniture—just update what you’ve got with a fresh coat of paint.

Peonies Wallpaper by Tempaper: If you’re interested in wallpaper but not the commitment, this removable floral option offers instant elegance.

    I used this in my living room and love it! I had leftovers that I used on my cube walls at work, and people compliment it still!

Do you have odds-and-ends vases in the same color family? A compact arrangement will have visual impact.

If you constrain tulips (or calla lilies or ranunculus) about two-thirds of the way up with a cylinder vase, the natural arc of their soft stems will take care of the arranging.

Bermuda Pineapple: A charming ceramic take on the fruit that’s a traditional symbol of hospitality, sure to make guests feel right at home.

A not-too-scary step up from beige, this bathed-in-sunshine palette is cheerful, warm, and comforting.

Succulents thrive on neglect. They love to bask in the sun, and they won't dry out, because their fleshy leaves have a built-in water supply.

Ursa Minor: Kids at heart will enjoy the presence of this constellation-inspired beech-wood bear.

Octahedron Object: Geometric blue marble stuns in any setting as it offers solid support for a shelved row of books.

Enhance flavors—and your table setting—with a salt pinch pot made from a shell.

Sixty-eight inches is the ideal floor-lamp height, since it conceals the bulb whether you’re seated or standing.

Position a mirror to catch the light and bring the sun into a darker hallway. Paint the mirror a clean, crisp white for added brightness.

A continuous pattern, like this modern black-and-white zigzag, running across a counter or backsplash is graphic and unexpected.

    I like this. I seen similar things before. Cool idea. I need to get to work on it.

A tight grouping of several small vases hides individual imperfections while creating a sculptural effect.

Combine three shades of African violets in a curvy urn. Cover with sheet moss (sold at most nurseries) to add a cozy feel and to help hold in moisture.

This tone-on-tone assemblage starts with miniature citrus fruits (key limes, kumquats) and Peruvian lilies bursting with color.

Set a casual table with a bouquet of hot-colored paper flowers, guaranteed not to wilt.

How to turn baby's breath flowers from the supermarket into a wow-worthy bouquet.

  • Brittany Ketterman

    My wedding bouquet was nothing but three bulk bunches of baby's breath tied together. It was huge and fluffy and magnificent. And it cost less than $10.

  • Brittany Ketterman

    Oh, and it dried beautifully and looked just as beautiful as our wedding day for years. That is, until it was knocked off the shelf and shattered.

  • Real Simple

    Great to read, Brittany! (Except about the shattering, of course.)

  • Jae Cunitz

    This was my wedding bouquet as well. I loved it! It was beautiful and perfect for my picnic wedding.

Buy frames with precut mats first, then print out favorite images to fill them at whatever size you need.

A small touch of pattern on the windows can brighten up a space.
