I just received my copy of House Beautiful "the Big Advice Issue". So in honor of this lovely magazine, one of the few shelter magazines that remains, this is an "Abridged Advice Post" on A Curated Lifestyle. Feel free to email me your questions and I may answer in a future post.
WINDOWCOVERINGS: Curtains should be simple, with simple hardware. Even if you buy premade curtains, have a workroom line the curtains for fullness and substance.
SOFA: Low arms and deep seats for comfort. I think an English Arm is perfect for this and George Smith does the best.

PILLOWS: More than 2, less than 10, usually.

COLOR: Use at least one brightly colored object in a room. A vase, a frame, even flowers, or a throw.
