3. Less is more.
Having all the latest state of the art furniture, or filling your home with everything you see in the Ikea or Ethan Allen catalogue with reckless abandon might leave you with a warehouse rather than a comfortable, well decorated home. A very basic decorating tip to improving your home is to plan how you want your home to look like, pick a few pieces here and there and make sure that they will actually look good and fit into your house.
4. Comfort is style.
The same principle applies to the art of dressing up: comfort is style. That delicate-looking 3.5 feet high, irregularly shaped fibreglass bar stool looks every bit a stunning piece of art, but will you, or any of your children ages three to seven, be actually be able to use it? You can try, but be careful not to tip over once you’ve had a couple of drinks. You may actually look better and well poised in a soft, upholstered lounge chair.
5. Seek professional help.
If style isn’t you middle name and interior decoration is not your game, then you may want to consider getting a professional to do the honours. You can find a variety of do it yourself demos and home improvement tips online, but if your shack needs a total makeover and you can afford to have everything seamlessly done, why not?
