how to jazz up a beige room

according to apartment therapy, you should have 80% neutrals and 20% color.  i think it's easier to add color to a beige room than go the other way... (from experience!).  here are some quick suggestions:

1.  add gorgeous yellow curtains.  everyone knows yellow is my favorite color.  make a statement with bright yellow.  or, if yellow is too yellow for you, i think the black and white striped curtains are amazing in a home that you want to keep gender neutral.

2.  paint the walls dark.  it will make the rest of your things pop!

3.  get an amazing rug

ikea has a similar rug

ebay has a ton of similar antique rugs

the madeline weinrib zig zag rug of course is my favorite

4.  decorate with black and white things
