pieces, you'll end up decorating your rooms around them. Instead, consider solid, neutral tones so that your
decor is easy to change with the seasons, trends or your mood. Your throw pillows and blankets can have
all the crazy colors and patterns you want since you can change them as soon as your tire of them.

explosion or otherwise injure yourself due to carelessness.
Some home improvement projects require experience and specialized training and should not be
attempted by amateurs. Keep these suggestions in mind to ensure that you don't get in over your head and
waste a lot of time and cash.
