Are there really rules that need to be applied when designing a space? For some people, they believe there are set rules to be applied...however I would believe the contrary. Who set out the rules anyways? Isn't design a personal taste? Is there a rule book that says red and pink shouldn't go together?
Living etc. has some fabulous concepts for style rules that need to be broken.
Next time you are working on a concept or a design for a space, don't let the boundaries that someone else put up stop you from being bold, showing your personal style or elevating design to a whole new level.
