1) Placing all the furniture in a room against the walls. Now I know sometimes this is inevitable if you live in cramped quarters, but if you have the room try out a few different arrangements.
I love the living room in father of the bride. The couches are smack dab in the middle of the living room… I love this arrangement (and this movie). I think the whole house is timeless.
2) Artwork/ Pictures that are too small for the wall. I often see in people’s houses teeny tiny frames on huge white walls. Think big!
Love this mirror (all following images lustfully stolen from Pottery Barn).
Grouping smaller items together is a great idea!
