Alter the style of a room in a day—all it takes is an off-the-shelf stamp. Here, a field of lilac took on the appearance of a high-end wall covering, thanks to the addition of stamped-on silvery medallions.

Start with a wall canvas of flat latex paint in a color that will contrast with the shimmery pattern but not so much that a stray blip will stand out. Then choose a stamp; these medallions were made with the 4-inch Funky Stamp (about $20; englishstamp.com).
