Go & visit home decorating stores - even if you can't afford to shop at the best stores, go there to see what it's all about. Don't slavishly follow everything, but develop your sense of what looks good.

Avoid following the latest ‘hottest’ trends or fads – It’s best to steer clear of predictions about what’s ‘hot’ or the ‘next big trend’, unless you’re OK with finding yourself in the position of having to change your home decorating every year or 2, or as often as you change your wardrobe.
If you’re painting your home in stages, make sure you find colors that blend together in your overall long-term plan. Try not to use more than 2 or 3 different colors throughout your home. If you like variation, use different shades of each color, but make sure they all blend together in your overall plan!
