- Ornate flowery plaster – This kind of architecture is very outdated and worked well a few decades back. If you still have it in your house, it is time to get rid of it. It is tasteless and adds nothing to the aesthetics. If at all, it just makes the house look ancient, and not in a good way. If you like intricate designs , especially floral, get some real flowers for the room than seeking to this kind of plaster.
- Murals that cover the entire wall – Murals are supposed to be very pleasing to the eyes and most often steal the limelight from the entire room. But that it only when you choose a good wall mural. Avoid using murals which cover the entire walls. Being minimal is the key. Choose one single design on one part or wall of the room and let it work its magic.
- Real life murals – Avoid murals which are real life photos of sceneries or things. If you are a lover of nature , a beautiful sketch of a flower or a tree will do the trick and not just tasteless green mountain with water thrown in.
