As with most things in life, when it comes to decorating your home, it’s hardly a good idea to hurry up. If you’ve recently moved into an apartment or bought a house, the urge to fill the room right away can be great. However, doing such things can leave you feeling unsatisfied and at the risk of being surrounded by things that are not really important to you. “Don’t buy all of the items at once to fill your space,” our designers note. “Instead, take the time to find things that you really love and will live with for a lifetime … or at least a few years!”
