Some of the key points are:
Consider the big picture before you start decorating
Take a photo of the room before you start. It will reveal truths your eyes might be ignoring.
Remember Function trumps style
Go bold in small spaces
Use unmatched chairs at the table
Keep key dimensions on your phone so you have them with you when shopping
Use a Limited color palette
Make sure that the room has points of height in the room
Cluster your collection together in one place
Use outdoor fabrics in the kitchen and dining room
Have tables near chairs in the living room so people can set a drinking glass there
Find gorgeous antique chairs and redo the upholstry
Unify your collection by sticking to just one color
Use rugs in the house to provide a warm and cozy feel to the room
