1
Mistake: Too Many Photos


You're either a photo person or you're not. Photo people feel very sentimental and have a hard time giving up the pictures on their walls and tables.


Solution: Gallery Wall


Display your favorite photos in a gallery wall and switch them out whenever you'd like. You can organize the rest of your photos in albums by decade or event, and keep them nicely arranged on a bookshelf.

Mistake: Ignoring the Foyer


The foyer is a terrific opportunity to make a statement about who you are and what your house is like. A foyer doesn't have to be something grand — any statement is better than none at all.


Solution: Make a Statement


Use paint or patterned wallpaper to add color, and hang a beautiful mirror or painting. A mirror is especially great because it reflects light and creates the illusion of more space. Use the horizontal surfaces to hold mail and keys when you first walk in.

3
Mistake: Undressed Cables


A cluster of tangled wires clutters your home office and can be a hazard.


Solution: Organized Cords


Keep wires hidden at all times with these easy solutions:

1. Find a cord cover that matches your wall color.
2. If the furniture isn't a valuable antique, drill a hole in the back for the cords to go through.
3. Keep unused wires in a labeled storage container in an easily accessible area.

4
Mistake: Out-of-Place Themes


A home's decor needs to be authentic and provide a sense of where you are. Decorating too much in the same print is overwhelming and tacky.


Solution: Stylish Accent Pieces


Use accents to incorporate the look you enjoy without being overwhelming. If you have a house in the mountains and love the beach, display a collection of seashells or coral in or on a bookcase or end table instead of designing an entire beach-style room.

5
Mistake: Outdated Accessories


Don't let your rooms feel dated by hanging on to older cabinets and especially hardware.


Solution: Updated Hardware


Make small changes like switching the hardware on your kitchen or bath cabinets for a big impact.
