How to Nail Artsy

Want the "artsy" look without going overboard? No problem! Just follow these tips.

The best way to nail artsy? Start treating your home as a canvas. Paint a piece of furniture -- really! Update an old chest by painting on a Union Jack or a fun graphic pattern. If you change your mind, you can always paint over it.

Don't go totally crazy, though; a few painted items per room will definitely convey the feel without making you look like a nut.

Keep in mind the colors already in the room and use a variety of hues within your color palette.

It might sound scary at first, but give it a shot -- it's cheap, you'll have fun, and mistakes are totally easy to fix.
