Editor's Design Pet Peeves
Our senior editor, Lydia Somerville, has compiled a highly personal and subjective list of decorating sins that drive her batty.
Too Much Beige
People mistakenly believe that the safest choice in home decor is to cover everything in beige, including the walls and floors. However, it’s actually a health hazard -- you might die from boredom.
Spice up a neutral scheme with shots of color in accessories, like a pair of persimmon pillows on that sofa, or a rich Persian rug on the floor. Color covers a multitude of sins, too, making it a smart choice for family life and heavily trafficked rooms.
