my roommates and i picked up some canvases from michael's and created our own artwork with some simple patterns. just pick a color scheme that you like and let your creativity do the rest.
using furniture to add color is a great way to brighten up a room when not much can fit in it. our red couch definitely adds character to our living room! warm it up with candles and some other small touches like these glass bottles. we got some very tasteful fake flowers from michael's as well and stuck them in the bottles. cute and low maintenance!
