1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Re: Suggestions for sprucing up a very boring front yard? on: January 21, 2014 02:58:11 PM
I am not an expert on xeroscaping, but maybe some large rocks or decorative fencing below the window where people in a wetter climate would put shrubs.  Maybe some pots of flowering cactus or other low-water plants to add a little color for at least part of the year? Or some contrasting gravel to make fake "flower beds?"

For the house itself, shutters on the windows would add a bit more contrast. Or to go out on a limb - people used to put up awnings over windows in the days before air-conditioning.  That might be another way to inject some color. 

Great ideas! Thank you!! The shutter suggestion is genius! I found some great DIY shutter ideas on Pinterest. Definitely going to have to do that this weekend. =)

Hello guys!
I am very clueless when it comes to this kind of stuff and I don't even know where to start. Does anyone have any ideas and suggestions to add some curb appeal to our very boring, very brown house? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks!

My husband used to have his own room/setup for his media equipment.  However, we just moved into an apartment and now it's in the living room.  How can I make this area look nicer?



Thanks!!

I have absolutely NO skills/talent when it comes to Home Decorating.  You ladies are all so amazing!  I was hoping maybe I could get some ideas off of you?

I uploaded the photos via Craftster Photo Hosting and they are in my Member Gallery.  Is there somewhere else I should put these to make it more convenient?

Anyways, we are saving up for a few large items and don't have a lot of money to spend on Interior Decorating.  I would love some low-budget ideas for updating this room and making it more inviting.   I don't mind doing the work!  I like the wall color, but if you have an amazing idea that involves painting over it, that would be fine too.

TIA!
