21. Professionally framed art makes a world of difference. Worth the splurge. 

22. A little white paint goes a long way. When you are doubtful of a dark room, corner or piece of furniture, consider painting it white. Matte paint reflects light more uniformly and makes rooms a little lighter.

23. A house should feel clean, yet cozy and lived in.

25. If something doesn’t make you happy, give it away, donate, sell it or toss it! Don't let old, stagnant energy sit. Something that is cluttering your home might be very useful to someone else!
