How to tell if you’re decorating your home right

Step this way for some decorating self-esteem

Revamping your home can be a stressful experience. Here’s how to know when you’ve got it right …

It makes you happy

It may not be, or ever be, “done” but if your mood gets a boost every time you walk through the door, you know you’ve done something right.

You feel secure with your decoraitng choices

You can appreciate all décor styles even though they aren’t to your taste. Of course that indigo blue wall, Scandi style home office and monochrome hallway can look beautiful, but you feel you wouldn’t change the choices you’ve made.

You still love pieces you invested in years ago

After all, they are called timeless designs for a reason.

You’ve made some decorating mistakes and are wiser for it

Yes, you took neutral too far in the kitchen and then used the wrong tiles in the bathroom, but you know better now.
