The Real Simple layout that was most helpful to me was a recent one on floral designs - I have a floral quilt (funky, with lots of black in it) and I needed new curtains and fresh artwork for my bedroom. I bought floral curtains (but I could have made some, probably for less $$) and then bought some vintage floral prints on eBay and framed them cheaply. So I didn't follow their ideas lockstep or spend a bundle, but the room looks much better than if I'd been left to my own devices.
