Before painting an entire wall the colour you desire, paint a swatch of it. The colour we see in the can will not necessarily match your décor. Do not paint it completely and regret it later. It is always better to try and test before taking the plunge.

Your Impromptu Dream Lifestyle Purchase

We all dream of a certain lifestyle, a certain things we wish we always had. An opportunity arises and we just randomly pick up that Dream Purchase. Do not do that. Do not pick up an oversized chair because you always wanted one and could suddenly afford one. Make sure it fits well in your current location. Do not make your dream purchase your biggest regret.

The Super Complicated Organizing System
Do not make your organizing system so complicated that after a given point even you forget what your system was actually meant to be. You rather have a simple organizing system which is easy to maintain and will not create hassels for you.

The Unwanted Flora
Just like the trendy piece of furniture, the plant looked great somewhere else but created a disastrous effect on your home. Do not forget to check the lighting availability or the space availability in your home before heading to a nursery. Do not make the mistake of purchasing a new plant and realizing that somebody in your family is allergic to it. A wise purchase has never done as much harm as a rather uncalculated one has.

The Cliché Art

Your wall should definitely have a special piece of art on it but make sure it is rather meaningful. Make sure it does not steal focus from the things you actually wish to make the focal point in your room. Make sure the wall backing it also compliments it. Do not just put a piece of art to fill up that wall.

Crisp White
