Home decorating ideas on a budget
The first thing you should remember when decorating is that there are no rules except
those that you set for yourself. However, having a plan is always a good idea and will
help you to keep on budget
Paint one wall using your favorite color, and so make this the focal point of the room.
Then hang a piece of interesting art on the wall (it could even be something you have
made yourself). Next, place a nice piece of furniture on that side of the room to provide
even more accent to the wall. If you want to add extra impact to the wall, then why not
use a rubber stamping technique? Although it is extremely easy to do, rubber stamping
can look very impressive when finished.
