My Top 5 ‘What not to Buy’ for your House

Copyblogger recently wrote a post about the show ‘What not to Wear’ and explained how this approach works well to illustrate ‘what not to do’ rather than always focusing on ‘what to do’. It’s easy to show beautiful rooms with the ‘right’ furniture (below) but harder to translate into your own space.

    Maria, I subscribed again since I realized I'm not getting your feeds anymore. It did say I was signed up. My hub has been fiddling with the computers so maybe he did soemthing. I look forward to reading your newsletter!

    wait, has it gone out? I don't think I've received a newsletter in 3 months. 🙁

    I checked my profile and I'm still active.

    Ofcourse, it makes total sense to me! Whether you are buying clothes or furniture and accessories for your home… buy what you love, you'll admire it longer, keep it longer and it will be true to your own unique sense of style. Michelle

  • Nan says:

    Maria, great article once again! And, phew!, I haven't done any of your pet-peave mistakes. Though I do admit that my hub was trying to help and "displayed" our little radio/cd player and speakers on a table – wires and all – and he was proud! I could only say "thank you" knowing I'd gently move it soon!
