In other words, you know you want to decorate a room, but you do not know where to start. In this article, we are discussing how to decorate a room from start to finish.

With the Coronavirus Pandemic, do I continue to decorate while I am held captive at home? That is a debatable question. However, we must focus on what is most important in our lives.
