Here's a quick DIY tip for making your livingroom more interesting.
Build a fort.
All you need are a few couch pillows, chairs, blankets...
Amir Fallah (who's the co-founder and Creative Director of the magazine Beautiful/Decay) has taken an excellent series of photos of livingroom forts - which he helped build.
The Fort series consist of collaborative forts created with male friends in their home. Each fort was built in under two hours. All materials for the forts were found on location and no aspect of the fort was preplanned.
