Recently HGTV did an article on the Top 25 Decorating Don'ts! I love decorating and after reviewing this list I've discovered that I've broken a lot of these rules! YIKES! :) How about you? How many of these have you broken? See my commentary and review of the list below:
25. Toilet rugs
Oh my gosh!!! My very first apartment after college, I was living on my own and it was my first attempt as decorating "my own place" I bought matching RED rugs for my bathroom! I still have those rugs but no longer use them. Probably should get rid of them.
24. Too many photos
Guilty as charged! My husband reminds me of this often. I'm a photographer, what can I say?
We don't have one of these, so that's easy!
22. Undressed cables
17. Too formal
Guilty again! Just about everything in our living room matches. Now, I am realizing that it's perfectly ok for things not to match. And getting more inspired by vintage pieces I want to add to our room.
13. Following fads
10. Floating rugs
I've done this a few times!
My first apartment in college I covered and outdated flower power couch with a waffle patterned cover. I don't think it was tacky. It was a much improvement from the flowers!
Oh, I've done this too! :)
I think we've been guilty of this a few times or two! Have you seen our house?! :)
1. Fake flowers
Oh goodness!!! So guilty! I love the look of flowers but they are to expensive to keep in your house all the time, right?!!! I have a arrangements that are fake as The Hills! But, I love them and don't really care if I break this rule! :)
What do you think? Which ones of these have you broken on this list? As many as I have?!!!
