Tuck in your throws – Keep throws under control. Fold them lengthwise, then in half, then tuck them into cushions.

Leather Lasts – The most indestructible fabric for dining chairs is leather or vinyl. Especially if you want white or cream shades.

Use a Real Rug in the Bathroom – Use a rug instead of a bath mat. It was made to withstand a lot more wear than the occasional wet foot.

Pile On the Pillows – One pair of pillows always looks skimpy. Use two pairs, in contrasting patterns, colors, and textures.

Play It Up Big – Small-scale furniture only makes a small bedroom look smaller. Try a high bed and a tall headboard. Your room will grow.

Four lamps are better than two. You need ambient light for mood and direct light for reading.
