I’ve seen and made a number of decorating mistakes in my time, from hanging artwork way too high to painting an entire hallway burnt orange. Of course, we know decorating can be costly, difficult to nail, and very emotional. And, sometimes you can spot instantly that you’ve messed up, while other times it's more subtle, when you can't quite pinpoint what's not working.
I’ve worked with clients all over the globe and have seen the same mistakes over and over again. I'm not talking about style here — how we design our homes is totally subjective. Instead, I've found rather simple mistakes, common pitfalls that are super easy to fall into. So, to prevent such decorating faux pas from happening to you, check out the most common ones to avoid ahead.
