1 Give Electronics A Proper Place: Finally give into your husband and invest in a flat panel TV. The objective is to keep electronics off the ground (i.e. those horrendous wires) and incorporate them into the design

3 Use Geometry: Harken back to your high school days and always keep in mind the lines. Symmetry is the key here!
4 Pick The Right Accessories: Adding texture is SO important. Everything should be a similar colour but throw in some cable knit, faux fur or satin in addition to your normal cotton pillow treatments.
