Seven Deadly Sins of Decorating

Metropolitan Home

Have you committed any? After seeing so many decorating "rules" broken to great effect on Apartment Therapy, we're usually wary of such lists, but this is sage advice that we can get behind...

A few of the sins we try to avoid in our home include:


  • Resorting to Cliché (Or as we call it, the "Catalog Effect")

  • Lack of Humor As the auther notes, "there is such a thing as death by good taste" - so true.

  • Slavishly Following Trends This is a hard one for us because we love experimenting with new styles in our home - how about you?


Check out the full list at Met Home then let us know which ones you try and avoid, which you are (gasp!) guilty of, or if you disagree with any of them.
