ok... this is great because i LOVE infographics.. but that one about how to make a space look bigger... idk.. some of those ideas or tips aren't really true. like pushing all furniture against the wall.. yes it makes more floor space but it can also make things un-cozy, at least for living situations.. maybe they're more generalized tips.. like... dark rooms can make a space feel bigger if done correctly.

I still love the chevron stripe.. or any bold pattern really. and of course, in moderation at that. huge punch of chevron is awesome. all over the place, not so much. i would even go as far as making a long wall all entirely chevron, but alternating the colors/striping every 12-16" vertically.. if that makes sense.

these are all great tips. I started to buy flowers monthly for our home and it makes a world of a difference! Costco has flowers for really cheap, or if you have a flower district in your city/county, or see if there's a wholesaler nearby (or even swap meets too! they get them priced like wholesalers do. look how many options we all have!) , so it's a luxury that everyone can afford, and if you know how to arrange it, it can look like an expensive arrangement!

i absolutely ABHOR the karate chop pillow as well! This is my #1 peeve, but for sure I have many other design peeves. Among them: desk/counter clutter.. oh lordy, i'm a big "toss it in the trash" or "stash it in a drawer" fan. i also hate cables/wires, almost everything in my house is wireless or hidden.. i also don't like mixed books on a bookshelf.. that is, the mixed color bound binders.. i keep mine color-coded, regardless of the topic or author or title name.. though i can see how some of those other ways would be more efficient.
