As we grow older and more experienced in design, there are some things we might want to go back and tell our younger selves. Arlyn Hernandez came up with a few for herself that include not being afraid to take chances, splurge on things you can only get once in a lifetime, don’t buy things you don’t really like just because they’re cheaper than everything else, and no house will ever look like they do in the design magazines and that’s okay.
- This blogger looks at her past and present interior designing habits and comes up with six helpful guiding principles.
- She emphasizes that design is not a quick process, that it’s okay to take chances, and that it’s unwise to buy items you dislike because they are cheap.
- Also, it is okay to get “stuck” on decisions sometimes, splurging is understandable, and remember that no house will look exactly like the magazine models.
