1. Your house should tell your own story. If you do that ev­ery­where, there will be co­he­sive­ness no mat­ter what.

2. Carry one de­sign el­e­ment through­out your home.

3. Use one paint color, prefer­ably a neu­tral, in all the liv­ing spa­ces. Then just change up the ac­ces­sories!

4. Opt for light fix­tures in the same fin­ish, like matte black for in­stance, but with dif­fer­ent com­ple­men­tary styles.

5. In your home, have only things that you love or that serve a pur­pose. Every­thing not fall­ing into one of these two cat­e­gories should go.
