Myth 1: Drawer Liners are simply UTILITARIAN....false: have fun with them- make them playful, unexpected, and stylish
Myth 2: "All white" interiors look stark, hotel-ish, club-ish, and unapproachable....false: adding in texture, distressed antiques, and interesting gilded accents makes all white dimensional, welcoming, and dare I say warm and cozy?
Myth 3: Small spaces have small impact...false: sometimes the littlest spaces and nooks and crannies have the most profound architectural and stylistic oomph. Myth 4: Small is cramped not cozy...false- when properly maximizing the parameters of a small space with good design it can be the ultimate cozy.
Myth 5: Sinks must be sinks...false- sinks can be made out of fetching furniture and be the ultimate statement piece in a bathroom- they don't have to be a chunk of utilitarian porcelain that you try to fade into the background and mask with shaped soaps and chotskies.
Myth 6: 1980's lighting fixtures look dated, passe, and ugly...way false (in my opinion)- fantastic boxy fixtures in unique shapes and styles accented with brass (read not composed of entirely brass) can look refreshingly modern and lend an updated retro feel to any space.
Myth 7: Horses and equestrian themes look either a.) cheesy, overtly themed, cheap, and Midwestern or b.) pretentious, stuffy, and overtly polo club Hamptonite...and Myth 8: personal hobbies are not stylish things to display for all to see in your home... false: personal interests, likes, loves, hobbies, passions are EXACTLY what should be displayed all over your home to make it YOU. There are ways to display personal memorabilia in a way that is sleek and sophisticated...say in photography...in thick white matting...in a gallery effect...down a foyer or hallway...see?
Myth 9: Personal photos are tacky to display in the home...false: while hanging 30 pictures of your family on every wall and flat surface in your home is boarder line overkill, agian, framing large scale, artistically taken photos in your home creates a personal sentiment and visual impact in your space all while creating beautiful heirlooms of portraits of loved ones and loved memories. Myth 10: fur bedspreads looks tacky and sleazy...false: if you don't think the picture below is undeniably chic and effortlessly posh you need to get your eyes checked.
