Be Choosy With Quirky Accents
In the chapter, "Creating a Home That is Inviting Yet Intimidating," I teach you tricks to make your home appealing to visitors, while simultaneously making them feel inferior to you. One of these tricks is adding distinctive accents.

I love a crazy accent piece, but you gotta know the time and the place. You also have to give it space to shine by not surrounding it by too many other quirky accents. Otherwise your space will look like three-ring circus inside Peewee's Playhouse. For this bedroom, I went pretty preppy on most of the furnishings and added a pop of personality with the alligator bench. This allows the alligator to be the star she was meant to be, with no other wannabes distracting from her beauty.
