The reasons we need a change are legion: we might want to paint the boring white kitchen walls a more interesting colour, or get frustrated at all the time we spend burrowing around in the back of the closet for something to wear.

Using easy to understand do-it-yourself projects, Modern Living - How to Decorate with Style shows how investing just a little time and money can make a big splash in your home.
