What Not To Do When Decorating Your Home

Decorating your home should be fun, but it can also be overwhelming and stressful, especially if you don’t know where to start. Making design choices like choosing too many colours or over-accessorizing a room, can easily throw off a room’s look. Keep on reading to find out what common design mistakes to avoid in your home!


Don’t Overuse Open Storage Shelves

Although open shelves can be a great spot for displaying art or storing books, it’s important not to overcrowd them. When styling shelves, it’s best to leave some open space between items for a cleaner look. For managing electronics, cables or storing games,movies,and toys, it’s best to keep these items tucked away inside boxes or baskets for a less cluttered effect.


Choosing Trendy Pieces Over Timeless Pieces

We all know trends come and go but investing too much on a piece that’s currently trending isn’t always the best idea and could make your home look outdated after it’s no longer in style. Instead, invest in simple, versatile, and beautiful pieces for your home. You can accent with trending decor, pillows and colours.


Too Many Colours

When decorating it’s important to avoid using too many colours. By choosing a neutral colour palette paired with one or two hues, you can effortlessly create a cohesive and clean look throughout the space.

If your favourite colour is blue, use a neutral colour for the walls and furniture and then decorate it with accents in different shades of blue for an aesthetically pleasing look.


Too Many Pillows & Cushions

While throw pillows are an excellent addition, it’s essential not to go overboard by using too many (though really too many is never enough!)

I prefer feather inserts to foam pillow inserts. You can get your karate chop on and they hold their form even after continued use.

In conclusion, decorating your home can be a fun and exciting experience, but it’s important to avoid easily made common mistakes. Overcrowding open storage, too many colours, and over-accessorizing, are some of the things that hinder achieving a cohesive and functional living space.

Instead, focus on creating a balanced and harmonious environment by using a moderate amount of decor and colour and choosing storage options that keep clutter out of sight. You can create a beautiful and comfortable living space that reflects your personality and style while maintaining a relaxed and inviting ambiance.
