Draw the Eye Upward. A room has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal one. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a manner that draws the eye upward. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a stylish way to accomplish this goal. Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined.
Create Texture. For a more interesting look, customize any of these paint ideas with textured paint treatments. Traditional techniques include rag rolling, stippling, and marbling to create a look with more than one color. 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.
