Are you committing one of these design mistakes?

By Amitha Verma

When I was working as a full-time interior designer, I had the opportunity to see many homes all over Houston. Some big and some small. Some old and some new.

In many of these homes, there were some common design mistakes being repeated over and over again. Of course, these homeowners weren’t aware of these design blunders – and some of them might even surprise you. Simply fixing these common “no-no’s” can give your space the designer touch it needs to shine.

Pair that with your painted furniture, and you can truly take your space from boring to “wow”.

In today’s episode of Amitha TV, I’m going to give you the insider scoop on:

- Two insider hacks you can use to avoid buying OVERSIZED furniture

- If you’re doing this drapery treatment “fail”

- Which color patterns to avoid if you don’t want to be boring

- How to avoid having a home that looks dated

- How to know if your rugs are the right size

Are you ready to give your home a luxe makeover? Maybe you’ve already decided which furniture you want to paint. And even which design “no-no’s” you want to fix.

So why wait? The summer is the best time to enhance your space (and make your furniture look way more expensive than it actually is)!

Tell me - what do you plan to do with your home this summer?

As always, thanks for watching, reading and sharing!

Love,
