On Tuesday night, I attended a decorating workshop by Elizabeth Mayhew, a contributing editor to NBC’s Today Show, at the Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams store in Chicago. Elizabeth discussed her 5 “C” rules: Color, Cost, Comfort, Compromise and Communication when redecorating a room. Her main rule was to make sure you love your living space because you are the one who has to see it all the time. She also discussed simple tips to improve your living space such as washing the windows, installing dimmers, containing chaos, hanging art at eye level and how mirrors should reflect something beautiful. You’ll just have to read her book FLIP! for more decorating tips! I can’t wait to finish styling my apartment!
