Sometimes we learn the best decorating tips from our pals. 

can’t go wrong with purple


There are no rules when it comes to decorating. Don’t be afraid of a bold color scheme, where shabby chic can also be neat.

dumpster diving is acceptable 


Someone else’s trash could be your treasure, whether it’s a flea market find or an inherited piece from a the grouchy neighbor below.

embrace your taste


Find art that speaks to you and your personal aesthetic – even if your friends don’t share the same opinion.

compromise is key


Sometimes you’re forced to make compromises when cohabiting – and that’s okay. That one piece from your early 20s, may not necessarily work in a grown-up space.

don’t rush it


Decorating is a work in progress. There’s no need to splurge on the big stuff all at once. Take the time to figure out your personal style and let it grow organically.

mix and match styles


Vintage flea market finds go perfectly with modern elements such as that infamous apothecary table from an alleged mass-producing retailer.
