Perhaps the kitchen is your bete noir? If it is you can do a lot with some new blinds and lampshades. Try some potted plants on the window ledge this can brighten most kitchens. If the paint-work really is past its prime then you need to decide whether you need a whole new paint job or whether you can get away with touching up the doors and base boards. If your bedroom needs a face-lift then try some new bed covers and toning curtains. Add a few cushions to your bed and you immediately have a more luxurious look.
There is still one more option for finding decorative wall shelves. If all else fails, you can look in import stores, flea markets, and home interior shops. These types of stores are famous for locating that hard to find item. This may seem like a lot of shopping but when it comes to your home, you want it to be the best that it can when it comes to appeal. The perfect decorative wall shelf could be anywhere and finding it is what makes buying them so much fun.
