Elegant Living Room with Built-in Bookshelves and Fireplace

This living room has a couple high-impact design ideas that anyone can do on a budget. Terracotta Design Build often adds wallpaper to the backs of bookshelves. "It’s a way to give depth and really set off any collection," says interior designer Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson. With wallpaper behind it, even a collection of inexpensive white vases can look amazingly expensive, she says. Then you can customize store-bought curtains by sewing a trim in another color.
