I don’t even know where to begin. Beyond furniture, I have no sense of fashion at all. I like everything neat and clean and earth tones. I do like some color, but I have no clue what I’m doing. From fabrics to decorations, I’m hopeless. So I’d have to ask for advice on what colors would go together and where to put the accents/decorations. How to align the furniture in the room so it doesn’t look crowded. Simple stuff for most, extremely painful for me. lol
