How To Fix Decorating Mistakes

We are often asked what to do in a room where something is not right in the design, but you are not sure which element is the problem.  HGTV's Linda Woodrum has a great answer for that problem.  She states that it is often a good idea to bring in someone else (a friend, spouse, etc.) to the space to give an additional opinion.  She added that when you are working on a room, "Sometimes you're almost blinded by being too close to it, and that's where it helps to have a collaborator. "  By bringing in another set of eyes, things can become more obvious.  For more information check out Linda Woodrum's interview with Kathy McCleary on,1000138,HGTV_42791_4426624_04,00.html

Vertical Lines Add Height When Decorating

Vertical lines in your decor will add height to a space. Painting vertical stripes on your walls or using wallpaper with vertical stripes, brings your eye up and down giving the illusion of more height in a room where there may not be any. Drapes can also be used to accomplish this. Long drapes give the appearance of height. Hanging your drapes on a rod higher than the window will give even more height to a space. Vertical lines can also be used to accentuate a tall room or tall windows, bringing more focus to this asset.  For more great design ideas visit
