  1. Throughout the house use carnations (the iceberg lettuce of the floral world) in great quantities and with abandon. Like iceberg, they last forever, they are available everywhere, all the time, and they are cheap. A word of caution – don’t mix colours, and do not use those terrible ferns that always seem to be included. – Michael Formica

  4. I never paint a ceiling dead white because all white paint has a bit of gray in it, and it takes the room down. Paint the ceiling a cream shade. – Athalie Derse
  5. When making custom pillows, use a stuffer/pillow insert that is 2’’ larger all around than your finished pillow size. For example, if you want a 22’’ square pillow, use a 24’’ square insert. Your pillow will be perfectly plump and never flat. – Lindsey Coral Harper
