I want to share one of my biggest pieces of advice for you! With design, one of the most important factors is PROPORTION! It is such a common mistake for homeowners to get the proportion wrong. Making sure your furniture, lamps and accessories are proportionate to your room and wall size makes a world of difference. Here is an example!
This is a project I've been working on! Enjoy the before and afters because I love them! :) You can see that BEFORE the furniture and lamps were to small. The AFTER picture is a huge improvement and helps to fill up the space more successfully!
