Interior Design Tips
One of the cheapest ways to get a high-end interior decorating look is to reupholster your own furniture.
To have a professional reupholster your furniture can cost anywhere from $100 to $500 depending on the type of furniture, the type and quantity of fabric, and the level of detail.
With a good upholstery gun and a sewing machine, you can do it yourself and save $100's! One of the looks that really makes a dramatic impact is to have a vibrant fabric that is tied in to your drapes, an ottoman, and your throw pillows. Keep the main pieces pretty neutral - wall paint and primary sofa colors - but have fun with the accents.
A bold floral pattern or paisley pattern really sets the tone for the room. It is in small increments, so go bold! Oranges, Greens, Reds, or Blues partnered with browns are very popular right now. Not all together, but pick one of the brighter colors against a chocolate brown solid and you are set.
Black is good too and in a wardrobe is the staple color, but when you are talking interior design, chocolate brown is currently the leading favorite.... Consider chocolate brown the prom queen of interior design colors in 2010 and black is homecoming queen.
