Sorry, you're really not fooling anyone with that silk flower arrangement. It's better to either replace fake flowers with real bouquets or just not display any flowers at all. If you can't afford a fresh bouquet every week, display potted flowers instead for a long-lasting pop of color.
Decorative items should complement each other rather than completely match. For example, a room with purple accents should not have only one color of purple represented in the space. Instead, use a mix of violet, plum and purple-gray for a room that flows together without being overpowering. Too much matching is easily fixed by swapping out throw pillows, vases and rugs.
Bathrooms definitely need area rugs to avoid slipping, but please don't adorn your commode with carpeting. Ditch the puzzle-shaped toilet rug and matching lid cover and replace it with a rectangular, no-slip bathroom carpet.
Patterns are great, as long as they're used appropriately. A pattern should provide visual interest without carrying the room. For instance, if your pillows, rug and curtains are the same pattern, you need to remove at least one of these items and replace it with another in different a pattern or a solid color.
Area rugs can complete the layout of a room or make it feel slightly awkward. It's all about placement. Make sure that your area rug is "anchored" to a piece of furniture rather than freely floating on your tile or hardwood.
It may seem counterintuitive, but your room will feel both larger and cozier if you pull your sofas and tables away from the walls. The only piece of furniture that you should smash against a wall is a bookshelf.
