These mistakes happen all of the time. Sometimes they can be fixed, other times not so much. By staying mindful, you won’t make any.

1) Clutter—All of us experience this at one time or another. It can happen so gradually that we don’t notice until until one day we look around and say WOW. How did this happen? It usually occurs when we are late and can’t find something we need.

2) Wrong Color Co-ordination—When putting a room together or even just adding to a room, if the floor(hard surface or carpet,) fabrics and paint aren’t complentary, something will always feel off.

3) Artwork–Can be hung too high or too low. Placement not thought out before hanging and not grouped correctly. Also, not enough art pieces for the amount of wall space.

4) Furniture—Buying furniture pieces before measuring the space or measuring incorrectly.

5) Lighting—Usually not enough to cover all of the needs we have. Whether it’s mood lighting, task and ambient, a room can’t properly function if the lighting is not right. Then, there are the dark corners that are not addressed.

In future blogs, I’m going to focus on each mistake with easy fixes.

Until next time.
