There shouldn’t be minimal, however, the favorite pieces of furniture and other details should come to light, and your living room should not be crowded.

Mistake No. 2 – All to be complement

A typical mistake that often happens when you put everything in one room anr try to fit one the another stuff. When you decorate the space, make sure to create your own corner which will be regulated by a combination of different materials, patterns and other details that might be different, but still a perfect fitted. This will give a personal touch to the space and it will be a reflection of your lifestyle and your affinities.

Mistake No. 3 – Buying everything from one place at the same time
