Every design, decorating, or remodeling choice we make will have an emotional impact on us.

Hopefully, we end up loving our decisions and our lives are richer because of it. But sometimes mistakes are made and the outcomes are not as happy as we would wish.

HOUZZ asked readers to share their thoughts on the subject and they generously responded with lessons learned, most likely the hard way—through experience.

Sometimes, forewarned is forearmed and we can avoid making the same mistakes.

Here are a few and a couple of my own:

DESIGN WORDS OF WISDOM

Unless you’re a house flipper or are planning on selling soon, don’t design with that idea. In other words, choosing neutral everything when that doesn’t represent who you are. You’ll never feel inspired or happy at home.

Always do what feels right for you. Certainly gather information and needed advice, but listen to your gut instincts…it’s YOUR home and it must tell YOUR story.

Until next time…

Blessings from my home to yours,

Nancy
Dedicated to helping you create spaces that foster happiness and well-being
