5 Renovating and Decorating Mistakes to Avoid

Interior designer Peaches de Guzman-Grey reveals errors that homeowners make in building or renovating their spaces

When we were kids, growing up seemed like the coolest thing in the world. We dreamed of the time when we could eat whatever we want (ice cream for breakfast, anyone?), stay up all night, and do just about anything that we could think of. Unfortunately, being an adult is often more complicated than we thought it would be. For every pint of Rocky Road that we devour, every all-nighter that we pull, and every crazy adventure that we embark on, there are ten more challenges that we need to take on. One of the biggest responsibilities that we have to shoulder is the building, renovating or decorating of our own homes.

However, interior designer Peaches de Guzman-Grey says that if you are familiar with the do’s and don’ts of personalizing your place, the task can be surprisingly fun and fulfilling. In this special feature, she talks about the common mistakes that homeowners make – and how to avoid them.
