1. Gallery Walls
A trendier option, but a great one none the less. Gallery walls are popping up everywhere. Simply gather a handful of inspiring prints, frames and other items you can hang on a wall. It’s fun to mix texture and style to bring interest to the eye. Gallery walls are ideal for areas that need a statement, like above a couch, up a stairwell or even as a headboard substitute. If you’re worried about finding prints or have no idea where to start or how to even hang your frames, we have several tips and tricks from experts on how to plan the perfect gallery wall.
The right rug can change the look of an entire room. With so many options, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll find one that fits your taste. Although the price range of rugs can vary a whole bunch, places like Target and Overstock.com have affordable options that don’t lack in style. Rugs can help define a space and bring warmth to a room with hard floors. If you really want to amp up the style, try layering two rugs with different textures to bring focus to an area.

Tapestries are a great alternative to painting a wall, which is super helpful if you’re renting a space or living in a dorm. They’re affordable, stylish and can be switched out easily. Most tapestries are priced under $100, with some starting at only $15, and come in a ton of different patterns, colors and landscape scenes. Check out the options online at Urban Outfitters and on Amazon.
