Use large framed prints to decorate your walls:

As they are so inexpensive, you’ll also be able to swap out the prints that you choose from time to time to give your room a whole new look.
Use stand out pieces to decorate your rooms:
Graham Norton who is known for being Britain’s most famous talk show host and interviewing A-list celebrities from the UK and the USA would likely use stand-out pieces to give Downton Abbey’s rooms a modern update.

Take inspiration from minimalist Scandanavian style:

So if you are looking for a fresh way to update your home, it’s a great idea to paint your fireplace or the wall behind your fireplace white and to add a few pieces of trendy Scandanavian furniture to your home. As a bonus Scandanavian furniture is often reasonably priced. One piece of furniture which Joe owns is a Scandanavian coffee table that he has placed on top of a neutral rug.
Consider artfully mixing light and dark tones:
