10 Lessons Learned from the House on a Hill

  1. To Hell with linoleum.
  2. Daffodils look like weeds for 54 weeks out of the year
  3. Stenciling walls is cool in theory, but a massive time suck. Especially when you paint over it in the end.
  4. Everything can be made prettier with pillows.
  5. A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference.
  6. Meanwhile, wallpaper is overrated.
  7. Do not invest heavily in carpet or rugs, it is inevitable that red wine will be spilled on them.
  8. When in doubt, go light and bright rather than dark and dramatic.
  9. Furniture decisions are hard.
  10. Completing a vision we’ve had for 3 years… one of the most satisfying accomplishments of our lives.
