1. Uncomfortable Piece Of Furniture

The home decor world equivalent of the Stiletto heel: Beautiful, but oh-so-impractical. It ultimately taught you that no matter how good-looking something is, if you can’t sit/walk/relax on it, it’s not for you.

2. The Overly-Trendy Piece

It looked terrific in the store window. And in the magazine. But in your house? It clashed with your favorite pieces and looked strange. Since then you only focus on trends that feel like you.

3. The Wall Color You Didn’t Test

There’s nothing like painting an entire room moss green before realizing that with your lighting and wall texture, it looks nothing like it did in the can. Now, you paint a swatch before any further commitments.

4. The Quick Fix

Maybe at the time you were more fixated on spending on vacation rather than a new chair. But when your cheap chair broke a year later, you learned they weren’t kidding when they say “Buy the best, only cry once.”

6. The Cliché Art

7. The Ambitiously White Item

You didn’t weigh all the things you love (chocolate, red wine) against this one purchase. But now you know. This choice might work if you don’t mind being extra-careful (or spending the extra time cleaning.)
