Decorating Fails You'll Only Notice When They're Wrong
A designer reveals common home-décor efforts that fall short—plus, easy ways to fix them.
Furniture Against the Walls
No matter how big or small your space is, your furniture should always have some room to breathe. No one likes a wallflower at a party, who quietly sips their drink in the corner of the room, and the same is true for your furniture. Pull those wallflowers off the wall and get them into the party (or, into the room in this case). That means your couch should be 2 to 3 inches off the wall, and your arm or accent chairs should be arranged to your couch rather than loitering against the walls. Giving everything a little more space and pushing it into the room will help create a more conversational and less static feel.
