What room in a home do we spend the majority of our waking hours in? I think we can agree it’s the living room. And because it’s the first room you see when you enter my humble abode, I’ve spent the majority of my spare time decorating it, from the bookshelf display to the cat-friendly sage slipcover that hides hideous floral upholstery. (The sofa was free, thanks to Mom, so I can’t really complain.) But my living room still lacks that “wow” factor.
My official decorating savior is the simple step-by-step instructions and DIY projects that make up HGTV.com’s Fast Fix Living Rooms. The first project on my to-do list? Get rid of the beige walls and give them some ultra-chic revamping. This sophisticated stenciling is the “wow” I want:
Or maybe this chic contemporary fabric wallcovering, below? (Your suggestions, please!)
Here’s a peak at just a few of the other stylish projects that make up HGTV.com’s Fast Fix Living Rooms. Be sure to check them out, and give your living room the va-va-voom you’ve always wanted.
I’ve got spring fever – bad. Ever since Groundhog Day. Now that the sun is making a comeback and it’s not dark when I leave work, I’m ready to live on my patio.

My childhood bedroom was straight out of a movie, complete with pink bedding, a frilly canopy and curio cabinets full of not-to-be touched dolls and figurines. It was lovely but not the playful, whimsical space I longed for. Oh, to be a kid now. You wouldn’t be able to extract me from that uber-cute play area with drum set. And Brian Patrick Flynn’s photo wall mural project is awesome!
