IKEA has a feature on their website called Room Revivers that includes a tagline, "keep your furniture, reinvent your room". YES!

...and the Afters!
It's a worthwhile illustration of just how powerful color, pattern, texture and lighting are — even with all of these rooms are dressed with similar type goods from the same retailer, they still present different style personalities.
From a sophisticated brown based room to the more dramatic rich purple based room to the neutral-of-the-moment gray based room to amore traditional Scandinavian red room and finally to a clean, light and bright blue based room; each setup is distinctive even though the items included all have a familiar IKEA flavor.
Which is your favorite?
