Choose a monochromatic color scheme or splash a rainbow across your space; there are no rules here. Emulate the work of a favorite artist, design your own theme, or hire a professional to incorporate the colors of your room and the personality of your family for the ultimate living room centerpiece. If you making your own mural is not in your skill set or you're concerned about resale value if you plan to move someday, consider hanging a large piece of artwork instead.

Though faux painting techniques can take practice to master, curious DIYers can purchase specialized brushes and rollers to achieve the look in less time. Adding texture to the walls or ceiling can make your living room feel instantly more luxurious, especially if you limit the technique to an accent wall and use a neutral palette with only a fine degree of contrast between shades to keep the treatment subtle.

Make sure to allow enough space to perform tasks common to the room, such as opening and closing window coverings and reaching for light switches.
