Your place looks boring. The only color available to see is your living room pillows and the plants. If that is your style great but to most they might find it boring. Also, your clock looks a bit off for me personally. I doesn't quite look centered. Also, about hanging certain items the same way at the same height it starts to look cookie cutter, which then looks boring. Then about the furniture placements. It depends on room size and what type of furniture you have. If you put everything in the center it could look cluttered and feeling like you are in a small compact area. Each room should feel big and spacious. That should be the goal of you house, apartment or wherever one might be living.

Janice Nungaray (20 days ago)
This is an awesome video, great tips but I gotta say it, there is a difference between Interior Design and Interior Decor.. Interior Design does have something to do with the decor but it is not the same. Interior Design is the designing or a room or building (aka the walls, flooring, elevations etc.) while Interior Decor is what you are talking about. I just say because I am in school for Interior Design and when I saw the "Interior Design do's and dont's" I thought it was a video about the rules and codes that needed to be followed when designing the inside of a home. But this is a great video of Interior Decor :)

Not putting furniture up against walls is such a good tip! Now I just need to walk around all the furniture in the middle of my living room haha
I thought this was kinda dumb, not to mention where i live is a whole lot of narrow spaces. They always assume you have 20 x 30 foot rooms and 75k budgets.
Natalia Bacchus (28 days ago)
Guilty of not hanging my curtains near the ceiling! It really does make a room look taller, and better overall.
I’ve got two issues. Our ceilings are 120” high and it’s almost impossible to find curtains that long at an affordable price. Also I want blackout curtains, we have a historic home, so the windows do not have room for a blackout shade. I need blackout because I get migraines. Oh and the windows are not centered behind the bed, so I need to have curtains that span the length of the wall behind the bed. The struggle is real. Any suggestions?

I enjoy your videos and the education...a lot of things I never learned to make a house , not just a home, but something I’m proud of ! And just my opinion but, I see a lot of petty jealousy & just ugliness from commenters who should just go & start their own channel or maybe trying to poach viewers?? Sad substitute for hard work & really reveals who they are as a person. I would not go look at them for that reason alone. Love you and your Mom’s stuff! So excited about your upcoming move!! Best wishes ⭕️❌

EVERY1 has the right to their own personal taste & style. Neutrals are NOT my Faves, HOWEVER they help calm things down. & if or when a soldier comes back from a WAR, having the furniture against the wall may be the best option in order to help them feel comfortable. This Gal has her own personal info. to share. Do NOT be SO quick to diss HER.

Great tips and I agree with all of them. I've always had curtains that cover the whole wall top to bottom and they look really fancy...as far as the rug is concerned that's totally true...I think the bigger the better and I don't mind cleaning it, I want my house to look nice and I won't be LAZY about it. Thanx.

If your windows have trim and crown molding on top of your window, then shouldn’t your curtains be hung inside your window, or what should I do?

I'm stuck with a $2K matchy-matchy bedroom set I bought a few years ago... ughhh. It's like wearing a matchy-matchy outfit everyday. Young people, learn from me... invest in timeless pieces that are neutral.

The only thing i buy in sets is dining chairs. Maybe you can split up the set or even sell parts of it.

Can you sell pieces on Craigslist or FB Marketplace and use the money to find something else? Maybe even strip and refinish with paint or stain?
BLUE WATER PINES (1 month ago)
If you have very low mid-century furnishings,higher curtains will not work.also one should have very filled gallery walls,or one piece.Just because there are walls does not mean it needs to be covered.ugh,furniture sets,agree.The biggest rule I believe is to not follow trends,unless you have a vastly overflowing disposable income.Identifying what your true style is and being able to live with pieces for a lifetime is wise.i would refurbish every year and regret this.Being eclectic and talented in design does not mean you can keep redesigning.Using your best bigger pieces and learning how to create your own accessories and decor can save thousands.your space is very natural and light,without alot going on.i like that.

It takes ego to do this. You have to think that people want to look at you (and she is beautiful) and that you have something to say that they will listen to. But competition is always increasing and the ones who get to the point have learned a valuable technique. I finally clicked away for this very disorganized video. “Ain’t nobody got time for this” .

How can I work with an blue walled room? I am renting, and my bedroom came blue. I've tried to keep all furniture and additions light greys and whites, with some dark green plants in the room. However, the blue is quite distracting as it doesn't match the yellow-orange wood of the floors! Thanks

NINTENDAWN (1 month ago)
The top mistake I see people make is putting the TV too high. It's interesting how so many people do this, but a TV should always be at eye level when sitting. Otherwise, you will suffer from neck strain. Now I understand that space can be limited for some people and the only place they can put it is above the TV. However, this brings another issue. The heat of the fireplace can potentially damage the electronics of the TV, drastically reducing it's lifespan.

The "mistake" I see most often is artwork that is hung too low/high, or really small framed artwork on a large wall space.....all alone..... It makes the artwork look even smaller and you can't help but think more stuff needs to be on that wall. Unfortunately, another "mistake" I see is people hanging one piece of art alongside another all …. around.....the room.

I had a house was high ceilings, so I need curtains that have to be 98inch long, it's so expensive if you go other stores to buy this length. So I got a pair from Ikea for only $29 (now it's around $34) and very good material, love Ikea curtains! I always made mistakes on #2, I sometimes so implusive bought few funitures, then realize they are either wrong sizes or wrong color, then I have to stick with them because they won't sell too much or nobody buys them! =( Also any tips on how to organize your indoor plants? I also bought bunch of plants, but I don't have space for them, so they all cluttered in one area, don't look nice! Any tips on how to get rid of furnitures/wall decor/home decor they no long are needed? It's so hard to sell them online sometimes, seem like wasting money just to donate them....
Hilary Price (1 month ago)
I disagree on the curtains. They looked super weird that far away from the window. That's not how they're meant to be hung. Yeah I guess technically it does "elongate" the room but that doesn't mean it looks good. Are you sure you went to school for this?
tom mondalo (1 month ago)
