Decorating your new house? Love the way something looks but fear you’re making a decorating faux paux?  What should you do?  Read below to learn when decorating rules can be broken.


Don’t Use More Than Three Patterns in a Room

This rule can be broken when you are decorating a large room or just because you like a variety of  patterns. When you use more than 3 patterns, do this with smaller objects such as throw pillows and use odd numbered patterns such as 5, 7 or 9. In addition, always combine patterns with solids.

Use Light Colors in Small Rooms

If it doesn’t matter to you whether or not the room appears larger, darker colors can add drama and warmth.

Rooms Needs Some Color

All rooms need some color, but if you are interested in an all-white room, just add lots of texture and materials for layering.

Rooms Should Have a Single Style

Although there are people who believe that rooms should adhere to this rule, most people break this rule and combine different styles.

Every Room Needs a Rug

Rugs do add color and warmth to a room, but if you have a small room and would like it to appear larger, you could eliminate the rug. Maybe you have a lovely floor to show off!
