Help Spicing Up Dull Rental Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: Dear readers, please help! Whenever I see a boring place, I immediately start moving furniture, rearranging stuff and adding things. In my head, of course. But our own living room just leaves my mind blank! We are renting, which means I have to live with the existing furniture and can't put holes in the walls. We are planning to stay for one year and will probably move overseas after that. Which means budget buys and budget buys only. But I still want my place to look homey and welcoming. Any suggestions?
