Jackie Hernandez is a self-taught interior decorator who writes a blog. Find below her list of mistakes that people commonly make when decorating their homes.
I think nine of the rules are self-explanatory except #5, the rule of thirds. This is Jackie's explanation:
Ignoring the Rule of Thirds – The rule of thirds is commonly used in photography and art to describe the best place for the subject. Draw imaginary lines on a picture vertically at 1/3 and 2/3, and horizontally at 1/3 and 2/3. Compositions with the subject placed on those lines, especially at the intersection of those lines, are the most interesting. The same rule can be applied when looking at a vignette in your home. Instead of placing an arrangement in the center of the shelf, try placing it 1/3 of the way in from the edge. It is more pleasing to the eye.
