In an interview a while back I was asked what advice I would give someone decorating a new home. My best advice is this: Take your time.
It took me many years and many homes to learn this. Patience has never been one of my fortes. So I’ve bought lots of things over the years because I had to have something to fit a certain space or meet some function right now. In the end I always ended up regretting those purchases because they weren’t exactly what I wanted in the first place.
So when we finally move into the new house, I’m going to take my own advice and fight the urge to get the house “done” as quickly as possible.
What’s your best decorating advice?
