plunksterdalektardis asked: I loved your decorating on a budget video and I was wondering if you have anymore tips? I'm moving into my first place in a couple weeks and the whole prospect is exciting and daunting. [sidenote: I'm pretty sure I saw you at the TFiOS tour in Redwood City but I wasn't sure it was you until I saw your video afterwards! Also, I might be going to the Harry and the Potters show in SF so... *feels creepy a little bit*] Thanks!!
I’m moving this weekend and am planning a whole series of videos about decorating my new place, so keep an eye out for that. A few more general tips though:
1. Only display things you really love and have a good aesthetic value. Pay attention to colors schemes and group items that don’t clash with each other.
2. If you can’t paint, tape is your best friend. Look for patterned washi tape especially.
3. Hang things on your walls in frames or neat grids so keep it from looking too cluttered.
4. Make sure you have good lighting so you can see all your stuff in the first place!
