20 Home Decorating Secrets


Pick your paint colors last, choose mismatched seating, and don't forget the closet lighting. Here are the best tips and tricks that nobody ever tells you about decorating.

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. Wallpaper Is Easy

The fastest way to make over sliding closet doors is to wallpaper them, like Melissa Warner did to turn a bedroom into her office.

6. Large Collections Need Order

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

7. 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.

8. It's Okay to Skip the Sofa

There's no rule that a living room has to have a sofa.

9. White Works

You'll never get tired of a white living room.

10. Mix Styles

A four-poster bed will take the chill out of a modern bedroom.

11. Layer Your Lighting

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

12. Tuck In Your Throws

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

13. Kick Your Traditional Coffee Table to the Curb

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

14. 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."

15. Gold Is Gorgeous

Gold is back in a big way. A few accents will warm up a room, like this classic living room.

16. Plants Cheer Up a Lonely Corner

Nothing softens a lonely corner in a big room like a potted tree.

17. Leather Lasts

The most indestructible fabric for dining chairs is leather or vinyl. Especially if you want white.

18. Switch Up Your Seating

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

19. Don't Forget the Closet Lighting

Love your closets. Paint them, paper them, hang pictures in them to inspire you. And definitely light them.

20. Refinish Vintage Finds

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