10 Decorating Rules You Should Break/Pillow Winners!

Posted by Michael on January 21, 2011

While it's wise to follow most rules the world puts out there, some rules were made to be broken, especially when it comes to design.  There are hundreds of so-called 'decorating rules' people like to talk about, but in reality those rules don't exist!  After all, folks who aren't afraid to go against the norm, take big risks, and think outside the box are usually the ones who end up with book deals, television shows, and lots of money.  Bottom line: Trust yourself and your design sense, and go for it! In the meantime, here are 10 so-called 'decorating rules' that you should start breaking right now........


1.  "You should always match your night stands"
