A bucket of paint is one of the most powerful tools in your DIY decorating arsenal, and it's also one of the most affordable. For under R1000, you can craft a green statement that's bold, unexpected, and totally makes a room. Try and use paint in innovative ways to delineate space, like the Moscow apartment seen in the photo below.

#4 – The green velvet couch ($$)

It's not uncommon for a trend that has become popular on the runway and fashion magazines to become fashionable in the home and on the glossy pages of the shelter magazines. Velvet elevates the ordinary. It adds texture, depth, richness and colour to any space. These soft fabrics are best left to those homes or rooms without children or pets. They show their wear and are much harder to clean and keep clean than other fabrics. But boy, pretty it is…

When you want to get creative, paint your staircase in a matte green that disrupts the harmony of the room. Don’t hesitate to go big, bold & bright, it will make one of the most boring rooms in your house, a lot more fun!
