Top Home decor Mistakes You May Be Making
by Pamela Cole Harris
I am assuming you readers have good taste – no hay on the walls (what WAS she thinking!), cardboard lined bedrooms, or plastic egg covered bathrooms. And after all, you DO read my advice! Yet, even so, you may be making little mistakes that change your home decor from amazing to awkward!
Here are some design mistakes you may be making!
1. Decorating your room based on a whim or the current fad
Hay on the wall of a family room! (she will never live that down!)
Frilly ruffles in a bedroom shared with your very macho husband.
Think about the room’s uses and users before you decorate.
2. Using incorrect lighting for the room’s use.
Will that chandelier cast shadows that will make the room occupants look like bad Picasso knockoffs?
Make sure to buy lamps and light bulbs which ease the strain on readers, and as for the shadows, why not try frosted bulbs to soften those harsh angles? make the perfect gaming room
3. Arranging furniture in awkward patterns.
While winding paths across a room might earn you extra exercise, they can be hazardous to our shins (and a couple of toes!). Arrange easy pathways through your room.
4. Putting all the furniture against the wall.
5. Awkward conversation areas.
Group furniture into small intimate areas where people can talk face to face.
6. Hanging artwork too high.
7. Scattering the accessories.
8. Including just one of everything in the room.
9. Having a lop-sided room.
Are you making design mistakes? They are easy to remedy! A little furniture moving here, a little shuffling there and your home will be ready for Architectural Digest (or Field and Stream – depending on your decor!)
