Interior decorating is not everybody's skill, but when you meet someone with a good piece of advice, you'd better keep them around. Here are some tips from my favorite NYC designers, Kristina Rinaldi, of Rinaldi Interiors and Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, of Keep.com and Apartment Therapy.
A wall shelf not only saves you space, but looks really great in small spaces.
Alvar Aalto Wall Shelf, $425
Add a pillow with a bold print on a bold color to add dimension.
Judy Ross Textiles Arbor Pillow, $195
Get a bolder rug. It should not match your pillows and should be a contrast color.
Cable Blue Rug, $1,128
Update your seating. Wood + Leather are trending so hard right now, there's no reason not to buy the dynamic duo.
Morris Bar Stool, $548
Lights make a big difference to the feel of a room. Go for something with color.
Verner Panton Flowerpot Lamp, $370
Wallpaper with an abstract print will give your room a sense of boldness like none other. This one comes in black and white, so you can fill in with color as you desire.
Graham and Brown Frames Wallpaper, $45
