Editing your colour scheme carefully is probably the most important area that you should NOT skip. Choose a maximum of 4 colours that you love - 2 neutrals and 2 bright colours. When shopping for furniture and home decor accessories, try your very best to keep within the colours that you have chosen. Different hues of the colour is allowed, for example if you like the colour green, you are free to have light greens, dusty greens, dark greens etc. 

Even if you are going for the eclectic style, mix different materials rather than different colours to keep the look from getting too cluttered. 


 Designer Pieces that does the Most

Consider splurging on 1 designer furniture. Something that you can pass down from generation to generation and have a piece of history to it. Make sure it is a piece that does the absolute most for you and not a piece that is only aesthetically pleasing. 
For example, this Storm dining table by Zuiver (Netherlands) are designed beautifully with curved edges. Those with kids would be thankful for this. The legs are positioned at the very edge of the table so you can maximise the seating area when you have friends and family over. Beauty should never compromise it's function and this is true for all furniture in your home.  
The Flodka multi-way shelf/console is another great piece that ensures design and function works seamlessly together. It's 4 pieces combined together which can be separated into individual pieces. It looks just as stunning together and individually.
