Mistakes. We all make them. When it comes to decorating mistakes, some are quick fixes and others…well, not so much. The good news, though? No decorating mistake is a lost cause. They can all be corrected, even if it takes a little elbow grease to do so, and in fact, I’d argue that they are even an important part of the process.
The thing is, decorating is a creative endeavor. You are going to make mistakes – that is just part of the process. There are two important things to remember: 1) To not be afraid to make mistakes, and 2) to learn from every mistake you do make.
Think of mistakes as discovering what you don’t want. You learn just as much about your decorating taste and style by looking at examples you definitely aren’t into as looking at inspiration that you love. Both help you hone your own style, recognize it when you see it, and understand what works and what doesn’t.
