Thanks to fast-paced trends in the realm of interior design, decor “do’s” are a dime a dozen, but what about decor “don’t’s”? In this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Marc shares what decor you should avoid when decorating your kitchen and dining room. Keep reading to find out what he has to say.
Don’t: Overdo it on the lace. Lace might be delicate and pretty, but it can also come off looking dated and cheap. In small doses, it can add a touch of femininity to your space; in large doses, it gives a nod to grandma’s home, which hasn’t been redecorated since the ’80s.
Do: Invest in good linens. Tablecloths can be made from cotton, polyester, vinyl, or specialty materials, such as silk. Cotton linens are less expensive and easier to come by, while polyester has a slightly silkier and shinier appearance than cotton which makes it better suited for more formal affairs.
Don’t: Mismatch your cutlery and dishwares. Though it may be tempting to set your table with whatever you have around, mis matched cutlery and dishes can make your table look disorganized and not thought out.
Do: Cutlery and dishwares are a lot more affordable today than they used to be, so making sure everything on your table is coordinated shouldn’t be that tough of a task. Your cutlery and dishes don’t have to be an exact match either, just make sure there are some cohesive elements that make them look well coordinated.
Don’t: Overdo it with the mason jar trend. All-things-mason jars were trendy for a long time, but at this point, mason jar decor is well overdone. Beyond the trend element, filling your valuable shelf space with various jars can come off looking cluttered.
Do: Keep your jars, bottles, and other storage items out of sight. Not only will you have more counter space to show for it, but you’ll have less things to work around when you clean.
