Whatever your secondary deal breaker is you have somehow come to terms with it and we want to encourage you to take that a step further. Forget apologizing about these things when guests are over or cringing at the site of them. Instead embrace what you love about your space and why you ultimately chose to live there. Changing your perspective will change how you feel. And you can make adjustments with some of them, like putting gorgeous shades up (pictured) in place of those not so hot vertical blinds.
How have you dealt with secondary deal breakers?
