In keeping with the series they've been having (101 pillows, 101 plates, etc...), the February 2008 issue of House Beautiful has 101 Decorating Makeovers! It's a list of 101 ideas for quick small changes you can do for big decor impact. We noted some of our favorite tips that they suggested after the jump...

#31- "Pull apart a big inexpensive mixed bouquet from the supermarket. Group similar flowers and put them in small vases. You'll have some for every room."

#41-" Use your best silver and glasses every day. What are you saving them for?"

#54- "If your kitchen is cramped, remove your upper cabinets and install open shelving. Just as much storage space, but wihtout the bulk."

#62- "Decorate under a console table. Dress up all that empty space with big inexpensive objects in dramatic shapes. Or put an ottoman there; who ever has enough seating?"

Check out the rest of their ideas in the February 2008 issue of House Beautiful, on newstands now. Their website also has some of the house tours featured in that issue, including a look at a very masculine and sophisticated home designed by Mary McDonald and a really cozy colorful home designed by Ashley Whittaker.
