Instead, she encourages her followers to simplify things by hanging matching frames that have clean, straight lines.

“You want to bring [the curtain rod] up as close to the ceiling as you can to help elongate your walls, making your ceiling appear longer and taller.”
“You also want your curtains to barely brush the bottom of the floor,” she points out.
Her final tip is avoid placing small-sized area rugs in living spaces.
She showcases an example of a patterned rug in front of a couch that looks like it simply doesn’t belong.
She tells her viewers: “The rule we want to follow is to have at least the front legs of every piece of furniture being able to touch the rug.”
Plenty of TikTokers appreciate her tips to avoid outdated home decor trends.
