Pick Your Battles
"Don't focus on what you hate about the room, especially if it can't be changed easily, like trading out wall-to-wall carpeting for gorgeous wood flooring. Instead, focus on what you love that you can highlight—maybe it's your sofa, a beautiful view, a great fireplace. Once you decide on your focal point, make magic there first by highlighting it with a bold wall color, a favorite piece of art or graphic pillows, then build the rest of the room around that." — Holly Becker, author of Decorate Workshop: Design and Style Your Space in 8 Creative Steps (Chronicle)
