11. The lighting in a room can make or break the space, and is one of the most overlooked aspects in design. With your lighting, can you see the bulb? If so, make it a pretty Edison bulb. I view lighting as art. Make your lighting dimmable and easy on the eye.
12. Neutral rugs are always pretty. Jute for high traffic areas, washable floor runners and soft wooly area rugs are heavenly too.
13. For that rustic feel, add twigs, wood, natural elements, and house plants. Twigs for curtain rods are so very pretty!
14. Don’t feel afraid to leave a space incomplete. Your home is a process and it can take some time to find the right table or chair. Living in the space can help you to decide what it needs, what it’s missing, what you need and love. All good things are worth waiting for
