“When I start working with new clients, I like to see the kinds of interiors they love. But it is equally as important to find out what they hate! I have been writing this column for close to a year now, and I’ve told you all a lot of design advice, but it’s also good to know what to stay away from or simply, what not to do.

Don’t buy matching sets of furniture.
This is particularly true in bedroom sets. Never buy a headboard, bureau and two nightstands in a “set” and expect it to look anything less than a Holiday Inn hotel room. Furnishings should complement each other but when the sofa matches the lounge chairs, the room may be so boring that your dinner guests actually do fall asleep.”
