We recently caught Gia Russo's tips and tricks on My Home Ideas, and we (unfortunately) identified very closely with the Real Simple design expert's number one decorating DON'T.

It's a mistake we make time and again...

DON'T:

Russo says that the most common mistake people make in decorating their homes is taking on too much. (We've written about our tendency to bite off more than we can chew. It's always nice to be reminded that we're not the only ones.)

DO:

Sketch layouts before placing furniture, create an overall palette and idea file for your house before buying anything new, splurge on finishes, and save on accessories. For all Gia Russo's tips and tricks from My Home Ideas, click here.
