Some tips from an Interior Designer!

So Domestic Divas night was a total fun night. I think everyone that came got some great info, but for everyone that couldn't come I thought I'd give a little recap of some stuff I learned from a pro interior designer..
1- don't hang your pictures too high- they should be at eye level
2- don't put your furniture against the walls- people tend to do this but it makes the room less maneuverable
3--neutral paint tones and bedding are the best and easiest to work with- then you can add color with accessories-that way if you ever get sick of them-have a party- or want to decorate for the holidays you just have to move accessories around
4- you don't have to have a matching sofa and chairs- mix up your textures and patterns
5-make sure your furniture fits your space not tooo oversized not too small
so there you go my fav things I learned.
