see if you can paint them a beige color and ASK to make sure you will not have to repaint OR you could hang some birght pictures get some colored fabircs,bright pillows for the sofa,make eveyrhitng bright and then the white walls would be perfect!

It's tough. You want to do so much but it's not yours.

Painting walls is always helpful. Rugs help a lot. Wall Batik. Fish tanks are really a good mood changer if large enough.

white walls with bright colors would be great! even the bright blue would give you a kind of beachy feel to your place

one word to brighten up any apartment - toile - use toile for wall hangings, room dividers, even (with a plastic liner) shower curtains - JoAnn's always seems to have some marked-down toile

Seems a tad indiscriminate - unless you want your life to look like bad northern Renaissance -

Default african way

am nuts about different cultures, different ways of thinking. my new passion is african culture. i had the luck of meeting someone who knew a firm ( Kei Creatin) that sells sets of plates and cups, "polished" with images from ancient african culture. what do you think? am i crazy ? in this modern world to have this plates? everything is standard and simple, useful to you nowadays.
