Being afraid of colour:
Ladies, just like make-up, colour should be used to enhance the look of your space. It may not be a necessity (yes, an all-white colour palette is beautiful), but colour gives your space character!

A room that looks overly-coordinated reflects the lack of creativity and flexibility of the occupants. Use different colours, shapes and textures to create a unique sense of style.
Neglecting the entrance of your home:
As first impression counts, take pride in the entrance of your home. Personalise the space and give your guests a taste of what is to come!
(Interior design by Juxtapose)
Being too formal:
Do without the formalities, your home should be a place where you can relax in and feel comfortable. Also, your home should reflect your personality!

Having improper or insufficient lighting:
Plan out the lighting in your home based on your needs and the ultimate look and feel of the space. Don’t just look out for fancy lighting fixtures.

Space-planning can ensure that you’ve maximised every inch of space you’ve got. Consider how you would arrange furniture in every part of your home before you start shopping.
Forgetting to incorporate storage systems:
Sounds pretty simple, but some people fail to consider their storage needs while designing and decorating their home. It’s better to work in more storage than to have less of it. Speak to an interior designer or a contractor should you need built-in options.
