Don't feel like you have to paint all the walls in a room the same color. Just painting one wall adds a nice accent to a room, and it makes the project even easier. You can always come back and paint the other walls later if you feel like one wall isn't enough. If you want to do something bold, try painting wide stripes, or paint just the top or bottom half of the walls. A chair rail can be installed parallel to the ground to separate two colors on a wall. Faux finishes are also a fun way to add style and color. For more information about decorative painting techniques for your walls.
Try spray painting the hardware in your home. Convert your shiny brass door knobs and hinges to brushed nickel for a modernized look. Cabinet hardware, light fixtures, and fans can be remodeled as well with paint. Remove the hardware from the cabinets, and disassemble the light fixtures and fans before painting to make it an easy project. When the parts are dry, reassemble. What an easy way to change the look of your home.
If you don't have any photographs to display, use pictures from a calendar or a photography book. Find some prints that coordinate with your home's color scheme, and frame them.

Have fun creating a unique look for your home that expresses your personal style.
