Tip #75 - Decorator's Dream Vacation Turned Nightmare
If you're the type of person to look for large pieces of furniture or other decorations for your home while traveling, it's a good idea to bring important info about your home with you on your trip. Don't fall in love with a sofa that's 2 feet longer than the space you plan on putting it. Bring measurements with you and a small tape measure. You can also, bring swatches of fabric or small paint chips of rooms you want to buy fixtures for. This will eliminate any need to guess--and you'll come home with accessories that will work in the rooms that you bought them for.
