Pet Peeves

I have some major pet peeves when it comes to design and here are my biggest ones.

Buying rugs and lighting that are too small for the space. Bigger is almost always better. Layer rugs to cover more surface area if your current rug is too small.

Too much of one kind of material. {See blog post from July 19th - mix it up!!}. Mix woods and metals. Keep the room from feeling so monotone.

Curtain panels that are too short. They should ALWAYS at least touch the floor. I even prefer a slight break. You can also add height to the room by hanging just under the molding.

In the words of my mother-in-law, "don't fall victim to high hanging". #truth  Art should be hung at eye level, no matter the height of the ceilings.
