1. Matching Everything

As much as we love to simplify our styling decisions by purchasing matching furniture sets, it is not always an advisable option because sometimes, just sometimes, it may look as if you bought your room off the furniture store floor instead. An overpowering sense of uniformity. Where's all the appeal in that? What you might want to try is to perhaps mix it up to create more interest and depth in your living space. Try swapping the chair or ottoman with one from another room and realize the difference!
2. Over-Accessorizing

Less is more. Over-accessorizing your living space can make it look cluttered and messy. Instead of putting up small pieces of accessories and furnishings, try to have one big statement piece.
3. Grouping Objects in Even Numbers

With odd number groupings such as in 1, 3 ,5, or even 7, the arrangement of objects would definitely appear more interesting as opposed to the traditional even grouping. Do so especially for the cushions on your sofas!
4. Everything the Same Height
