12 rookie decorating moves you might be making

I was raised by an interior designer and even I have been guilty of making rookie decorating moves. In fact, just last year - mind you, I have been writing about design for eight years - I made one of the most rookie moves: I hung my kitchen pendant so low that I bump my head on it.
