This is the living room of my most recent home, at the point where I started to get things right. Sort of.
I was an architect in a former life, and as a result I probably care more than is emotionally healthy about how my home looks, and also, because I am used to being a Designer, I feel tremendous pressure to not mess anything up, design-wise, ever. But even though I know lots about color theory and I can provide a decent explanation of Brutalism and Mannerism and many other isms, I mess things up all the time. I've decided to share three of my biggest goofs, as an exercise in humility, and, hopefully as a way of ensuring that you, the reader, will never have to make the same mistakes.
