Five Decorating Don'ts

When decorating a home, no matter how small, these are the top five no-no's to try avoiding:

Don't...
1. Have all your wood furniture in the same color family (a mix of wood pieces can demonstrate more of your personality and is more interesting to the eye)

2. Fill every single wall in a room with artwork (it can be overwhelming and start to make a space feel crowded)

3. Do away with throw pillows on a sofa (too comfy not to have)

4. Crowd a nightstand with things you don't use or enjoy seeing every day (you want to start the day on a positive note)

5. Ignore your lightswitch covers (why not switch these out from time to time to mix things up in a room? it'll only cost you a few bucks at your local hardware store and paying attention to a small detail like this goes a long way)

#2 and #4 are my favorite tips, for sure! I can't explain how important negative space is to me. I prefer to fill it with light, not things. Thanks for the great post!
