Pick a color scheme….and stick to it. One of the easiest ways to break the good vibe of a room is to have too many colors, or colors that clash. Pick three or four complimentary colors- pamphlets at the paint store could help with this- and match all your paint colors, furniture, and accessories to those colors. Keep in mind the the bolder colors tend to create a lively and energetic feel, while earth tones and milder colors create a relaxing vibe.

Design each room around one central piece. Maybe it’s the fireplace or a grand piece of art. Maybe it’s the beautiful built-in bookshelves. Whatever it is, find one striking piece that draws attention, and design the room around it. (Just, for heaven’s sake don’t make it the television!)

Hang pictures at eye level. This seems like a no-brainer, but it’s harder to do if you’re of more or less-than-average height. Put your artwork and pictures at eye-level for the average person (somewhere around five and a half feet), and you’ll have a winning combo.
