Surely we all want lovely homes but despite our want, we lack one thing or another that jolts our planning resulting in a poor outcome. Home decorating is an art, not a luxury. Just keep our 7 handy tips in your mind as you plan home décor this autumn.

While it is good to give your house a lively and joyful look, some people go for too pinching colors – a total eye-sore! Avoid it. The tip is to get professional advice or test with many colors before choosing one.
Well-lit rooms with tad bits of shadows add a dreamy effect to your living and bed room. Focus specially on lamps. Choose inexpensive but quality lamps and decorative lights for the stairs, room corners, gallery and lawn.
Go online and look up bathroom tiles, styling and tips for designing. You will find an array of tile designs ranging from economical to expensive. Choose quality tiles from a reliable source.
