Homeowners are looking for long-lasting appeal, not flash-in-the-pan decor for their dwellings. In recent years, the green movement, vintage furniture and ethnic themes in home design have all made their mark on how people furnish their homes.

They can infuse their new digs with a design plan that's customized to fit their taste and may be able to enlist support from the landlord to make subtle changes.
If A Full Scale Makeover Is Delayed, Make Small Changes To Liven Up A Home
