  1. Be Bold with Color Choices: If your space is feeling a little lackluster, consider adding some bold pops of color. Don't be afraid to mix and match different hues and patterns.  Keeping the main pieces neutral always gives the option for sassy accessorizing.
  2. Mix Old and New: Embrace the eclectic look by mixing vintage pieces with modern accents. It's a great way to add character and depth to your space. Plus, if anyone asks about that antique chair in the corner, you can tell them it's a family heirloom (even if you found it at a thrift store).
  3. Don't Skimp on Lighting: Good lighting can make or break a room, so make sure you have a variety of light sources to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. A mix of ambient and overhead options all on dimmers are my go to!
  4. Embrace Texture: Adding texture to your space can make it feel cozy and inviting. Think plush rugs, soft blankets, and fluffy throw pillows. Just be prepared to answer the inevitable question, "Can I touch that?"
  5. Personalize Your Space: Your home should reflect your personality and style, so don't be afraid to add personal touches throughout. Display your favorite art or photographs, incorporate sentimental items, and don't forget to include a few quirky conversation starters.  I display a serious looking gold framed oil paining of a monkey over my piano.  Never fails to get a smile or a question. 

Remember, design should be fun and reflect your personality. So don't be afraid to take risks and try new things.  

Be Yourself.  Be Fabulous.  Have Great Design.
