  1. HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! Are you making any of these design mistakes in your home?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ I know I have!!

    Make sure you SUBSCRIBE so your don’t miss the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! 📣

    1. Just a boring lightbulb in the middle of the ceiling. Not those ugly ones you showed! Ghastly things 😲
      No cords.
      None of the other things you mentioned, either.

      Btw, it’s *one nightstand* on each side of the bed, not two 😁😁

    2. @Just A girl many living rooms are just not large enough to place a sofa away from the wall… mind you, maybe use only upholstered chairs /love seat/ condo sized…. could work

  2. I think tapestry can look more high-end if you stretch it on a canvas. It really presents itself as a unique piece of art rather than some random fabric nailed to the wall.

  3. You made me laugh. When my husband and I built our home, I told him the boob lights had to go. He looked at one, and said, “Huh,” and off to Home Depot we went.

  4. The shoes by the door I feel like an easy mistake to make but you didn’t have to call me out on the tapestry 😂🤌🏼 I was JUST thinking about how I need to pull the metal rings out and sew a loop border to hang it like a real woven tapestry 🤣

  5. We have boob lights and I think it’s hilarious that you call them that because I never heard anyone else call them that except me! Lol 😂
    And yes I think they are awful!!!

  6. Get real art! It’s a great investment, doesn’t need to be expensive, is personal to you, AND makes you look intelligent which is decidedly better than trying to appear “high end” which is shallow.
