Move it

You probably haven't done this since you moved in or had new furniture delivered, but rearranging a room immediately gives it a fresh feel. Moving the television, or swapping a long sofa for two comfortable wing chairs with ottomans, can make a world of difference. If there's a feature in the room that's not being shown to its advantage, like a fireplace or a great view, consider making that the focal point. If it's in your budget, purchasing just one piece of furniture, like a parlour chair from CB2 in Pantone's color of the year - Tangerine Tango, can also transform a room from routine to eye-popping.Photo courtesy of CB2, BALTIMORE SUN
