THIS decorating mistake makes your home look tacky, not classy, according to an interior designer.
Everyone loves a good beach themed room. It can make your house look like an oasis and make every guest feel like they are on vacation.
However, this design style needs to be done right or your posh beach house will turn into a tacky beach shack.
A veteran designer from Vybe Interior has shared the biggest mistake people make when trying to bring the beach into their homes.
In a TikTok video, the designer recommended going for a beach concept rather than a beach theme.
You may be thinking what’s the difference? But therein lies the common mistake.
People get carried away by adding too many beach memorabilia such as rowing oars, patterns of hibiscus flowers, and wave drawings on the walls.
Opt for a more sophisticated look for a beach concept in your home.
A beach concept is more subtle and adds richer elements that don’t scream beach day but whisper cool and calm vibes.
For this look, the designer suggested using natural beach materials like wicker and wood.
You can also add elements of pampas grass and feathers in neutral vases.
The designer said these tips add a “coastal vibe” to your space.
This designer also shared three common living room mistakes, no matter what your design concept.
The first mistake explained in the TikTok video is trying to match each individual piece of furniture, or as she put it, “matchy-matchy furniture sets.”
She said, “You don’t want to look too cookie-like and the same.”
The designer also cautioned against hanging your artwork too high.
Finally, if you have a futon and it’s not for practical reasons – throw it away.
The only reason you need a futon in your living room is if you need extra sleeping space.
Follow these tips to upgrade your home and keep it stylish and not tacky.
