Resist the urge to be too theme y. For example, the Cape Cod look is a very popular request. You know the hallmarks, beadboard, a blue and white nautical palette, some sailboat paintings. But this has been done so many times, it lacks individuality. In this room the coastal vibe was achieved through a palette, artwork and materials that give the effect without drawing on the obvious clichés.
As you get older, you become much more conscious of those learned reactions than the innate ones. On a bleak day it would be so easy to throw on a pair of jeans and a slouchy sweater, but throw on something from spring, a green mini skirt, fun fringe booties and a sweater with evening jewelry. That makes an impression on everyone around, but it also makes feel cute.
