Decorate Walls Without Paint

Everything looks better with a little color, right? And sure, a coat of bold, fresh paint is a great option. But for those of us who don't want to break out the rollers and brushes, there are other tricks that can spice up your walls too:

1. Wall decals can add the look of wall paper or stencils without the time or mess. They come in a variety of colors and designs so choose the one you love and start sticking!
2. A large mirror can bring a focal point to the room -- especially when flanked with a complementing decal on either side.
3. A collage of plates, frames or other accessories adds visual interest through different colors, shapes, patterns and sizes.

Not only will these items freshen up the look of any room, they work especially well for those of us with commitment issues when it comes to decorating and saying "I do" to a new paint color.
