Furniture: Less is more
Choose larger furniture pieces for their design interest, but use fewer of them. One large piece of furniture makes a small space feel grand; lots of small pieces create visual clutter.
Buy quality furniture. It may cost more up front, but good furniture will last longer.
Skip the trends. Look for traditional furnishings that blend with a variety of styles. When you're in the mood for change, switch out inexpensive accessories instead of furniture.
Have a plan and purpose. Don't fill your home with impulse buys. Make sure every piece of furniture fits in an overall plan.
