6 Decorating Tips

Today I thought I'd pass along a few decorating tips I've learned along the way.  These are easy rules to follow, but, of course rules can always be broken!

1.  Fill 2/3 of the (visual) space above a sofa.


2. Hang art roughly 5 to 7" above a table or sofa.

3. When accessorizing, use different heights and levels to keep things interesting.

4. Hang pictures at eye level.  Most people hang them too high.

5. Symmetrical arrangements read more formal and asymmetrical arrangements are more casual.

6. A rug under a dining room table should be large enough to allow for chairs to remain on the rug when they're pulled out.
