12 interior design secrets 


1.Pile On the Pillows





















One pair of pillows always looks skimpy. Use two pairs, in contrasting patterns, colors, and textures.


2. Buy a Bigger Bed


















Small-scale furniture only makes a small bedroom look smaller. Try a high bed and a tall headboard. Your room will grow.


3. Leave Cabinets Open

An open armoire is more interesting than a closed one. Let people into your secret world.


4. Go Dark


Dark walls do the opposite of what you’d expect: They make a small room feel bigger.


5. Large Collections Need Order

Wall brackets can bring order to a large collection or odd shapes.


6. Use a Real Rug in the Bathroom

Use a rug instead of a bath mat. It was made to withstand a lot more wear than the occasional wet foot.


7.Layer Your Lighting

Four lamps are better than two. You need ambient light for mood and direct light for reading.


8. Tuck In Your Throws


Keep throws under control. Fold them lengthwise, then in half, then tuck them into cushions.


9. Kick Your Traditional Coffee Table to the Curb

The most versatile coffee table you’ll ever own is an ottoman topped with a tray.


10. Skirted Furniture Finishes a Room

Too many chair and table legs can make a room “nervous.”  A skirted piece or two will make it feel “grounded.


11. Switch Up Your Seating

Mix up the seating at your dining table. You wouldn’t have eight identical chairs in your living area.


12. Refinish Vintage Finds


Don’t be afraid to paint a vintage piece. Every piece of furniture can’t be brown.
