The Worst, Most Expensive Decorating Mistakes Designers Won’t Make Again

Chastity Fabry

Let’s face it: Some lessons in life are learned the hard way. Often, making a mistake is the best way to figure out what not to do in the future. When the stakes are high and the outcome is costly, you tend to remember an experience and grow from it, with the hope (in theory) that you’ll never repeat it again.

Well, this same sentiment applies to decorating your home. Seemingly trivial design decisions can turn into expensive issues fast—and often, these things could have been avoided with a little bit of planning, prep, or research. Curious about what rookie mistakes might cost you major moolah in the long run? Here, a handful of interior designers are sharing their insight on the pricey decorating mistakes they’ve made in the past. Hopefully, you can vicariously learn through them—I know I will!

Last Updated on

To complete the look of a new custom home in California, you will want to employ the services of a top-notch interior designer. Without cohesive furnishings, lighting, art, wall and floor coverings, all the hard work put in by your architects and builders will simply not get the justice it deserves.

Regardless of the style you are going for, the ten West Coast designers on this list are the ones to call.

Interiors designers are perhaps the most mobile professionals in the custom home industry. So whether you have a residential project located along the Pacific Coast in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, or San Diego or somewhere in-between, these

Important Job Skills for Interior Designers

Chastity Fabry

If you love design, decor, and creating cohesive color schemes, interior design could be an excellent career choice for you. A designer is hired by individuals, companies, and real estate agents to decorate spaces, such as offices, living rooms, or bedrooms. They take into account a client’s taste, budget, and the space itself to come up with a look that matches the customer’s needs.

As of 2018, interior designers earned a median salary of about $53,470 per year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Job growth for the decade ending in 2026 is projected at 4%, which is one of the largest growth margins of all the artistic professions. For those willing to steer their interior design efforts toward commercial healthcare facilities, the projected growth is significantly higher.

According to BLS, about 20% of interior designers are self-employed, and more than half worked for specialized design firms

For many of our favorite designers, great style started at home. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked everyone from Bobby Berk of Queer Eye to designer and author Justina Blakeney about the design lessons they learned from their moms (or grandmothers and other mother figures).

What are the tips they picked up from the most important women in their lives? They learned how to stay organized, mix high-end and vintage pieces, incorporate art into a space, and more. Some of them, like Nate Berkus, were lucky enough to have moms who were interior designers themselves. Read on for the best lessons that continue to guide these designers today.

Chastity Fabry

A group of Long Island-based interior designers have formed DesignGivers, a new nonprofit organization coordinating design industry professionals to give back and support communities during the coronavirus pandemic.

Design Givers offers virtual interior design consultations while collecting donations to support the most pressing needs facing local communities. Its focus is providing aid to families struggling with food shortages due to COVID-19 by supporting Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization with a network of 200 food banks nationwide, including Island Harvest.

“While walking my dog, I visualized the people in the houses I passed who now had to work or study from home and how their homes needed to function differently than they did prior to the coronavirus outbreak,” said Annette Jaffe, founder of DesignGivers and principal designer at Annette Jaffe Interiors.

3 Designers Reveal the Home Decor Items Worth Splurging On

Chastity Fabry

In partnership with New York School of Interior Design

Any savvy shopper knows that your space doesn’t have to be filled with expensive items to look expensive. However, there are some home decor categories where the splurge is well worth it. A nice design piece can set the look, feel, and tone of a room, adding substance and detail that you can both see and feel and improving your overall mood. But how do you know when to spend vs when to save?

To answer that, we turned to some of the sharpest design eyes we know: alumni from New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). Offering everything from traditional undergraduate and graduate degrees to professional certifications, NYSID is home to some of the brightest minds in the industry. We asked three graduates what design items they think are pricey, but worth the splurge — and what design items you
