14. Go with a custom quilt, table runners, or placemats

Whether you are a quilter or hire one, custom quilts are a great way to get the perfect look for any room. By hand selecting the colors, themes, and textures of the fabrics that will be sewn into the pattern of your choosing, the quilt will be as unique as the space it inhabits. The wide variety of fabric options available offers something for every style. Quilted table runners and placemats add style and protection for your furniture. – Tara Reed
