Overdecorate the spaces

Succeeding with the combinations is somewhat difficult, although if you are going to do it, consult a professional, who will give you the guidelines when combining.

Have bad lighting

However we have our house well decorated if we do not have good light, it is of little use if we can not appreciate it, if your house does not have large windows that provide light, we must put some lamps that provide sufficient lighting to our space. Mirrors are another good option, as they reflect light.

Abuse of prints

The furniture with patterned fabrics usually decorates and highlight the rooms. Keeping in mind this we must not overload with full decoration of these motives, since they are difficult to combine among them, to avoid that happens to us, combining prints with plain fabrics we will not risk.

And it's fine, but you have to keep in mind that, if it's a fundamental element, like for example the sofa or the bed, it's important that besides being nice and practical and comfortable. We must also take into account the distribution of furniture and decorations, place them avoiding obstacles and respecting the circuits of passage, especially in the busiest areas.
