Decorating Do’s and Dont’s.
This is my site Written by Amy@EW on November 5, 2009 – 4:13 PM


* Decide on a budget at the beginning of you project. If your funds are limited, decorate your rooms one at a time.

* Buy items that will have the most pronounced effect on the room first – like wallpaper, carpet, and furniture. Accessories can be added later.

* Keep a scrapbook of decorating ideas, wallpaper samples, colors schemes, how to create with color, etc.

* Be sure to create a personalized room, not an imitation of someone else’s. Your personality should shine through, as well as your lifestyle.

* Buy wallpaper, fabric and floor coverings for their practical as well as decorative effect. Keep in mind kids, pets, lifestyle.

* Make a ceiling the fifth wall of the room. Remember walls can be one color or pattern, ceilings another. Coordinating colortones always look and work great for ceilings.

* To effectively mix textures in a room, make sure there is a common denominator, like a common color.


* Fall for fads in style and design. You’ll tire of them quickly.

* Buy products because they are a bargain. Always make your wallcoverings and furniture an investment in the value of your home.

* Fill every inch of space. Leave some breathing room for favorite items to stand out.

* Use too many similar textures in a room. They can cancel each other out.

* Be afraid to experiment with different colors, textures and kinds of wallpapers.
