Interior designers always notice these bedroom decorating mistakes

We know it right away when walking into a great hotel room: Everything is perfectly proportioned, the bed is meticulously made and the lighting casts a soft glow on attractive and functional furniture.

Style at Home: Kids room transformation: Georgia's room

Speaking from experience, it's great to be the youngest in a pack of three kids. Despite what my siblings might tell you, as the baby of the family, I was not spoiled, and I did not get away with everything.
