7. Transform white or gray rooms with a feathered lampshade. The "touchable" quality of the feathers softens the overall feeling of the room, while their dark, jewel-toned colors reduce starkness. Take a simple lampshade and cover it with peacock feathers. With a glue gun in hand, start at the bottom of the shade, adding one layer at a time until you reach the top of the shade. The feathers should overlap each other slightly to ensure that you don't see the lampshade underneath.
