SOUTHBURY, CT--(Marketwire - Feb 29, 2012) - With the 'home' being the heart of any family, and the economy struggling to right itself, more and more people are creating family memories and events from the comfort of their home environment. So, it's more important than ever to have an inviting, beautiful space where people want to gather together. Decor&You Founder and President Karen Powell says that people need to be aware of the top five decorating risks and potential blunders before they spend countless hours, money and time when on a decorating project.
"Many people are overwhelmed with the thought of creating a great room," says Powell. "It first helps to understand what can go wrong when inexperience and lack of knowledge gets in the way of achieving a great living space."
"People want to look forward to coming home," says Powell. "So, understanding the risks and getting the support from a professional decorator to create a warm and inviting space is the best way to get started."
Powell suggests that people simplify their next decorating project and seek professional advice from an in-home professional decorator who brings knowledge as a color specialist, master planner, and will ultimately save money, time, and will get it right the first time.
