Interior designer Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design took an old New Jersey Victorian and, without knocking down a single wall, transformed it into a bright, happy home for a family of six. How’d he do it? By using a bit (okay, a lot) of color and tons of ridiculously affordable tricks.

1. Layer your rugs. To cover a lot of ground, lay down a large, inexpensive natural weave as a neutral base and put a smaller, pricier print on top.
2. Create balance. Note the pairs: lamps, chairs, pillows, trees. “Symmetry adds a sense of harmony to a room that’s packed with color and pattern,” says Mazzarini.
3. Draw the eye up. Consider an accent ceiling instead of an accent wall. The green painted border adds dimension and gives the illusion of extra height.
4. Stick to one wall color. No need to stress over multiple paint decisions. Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray is used here as well as in the entry and living room to unify the adjoining spaces. One and done!
