The folks over at Real Simple give some advice about how to liven up a boring bedroom. Real Simple gives some tips about how to improve the artwork, curtains, lighting, furniture, bedding, and rugs for cheap. The tips are very appropriate for those of us who want to redecorate without spending a lot of money.

Artwork
