Q: There are so many rooms in my house in need of updating. Where do I begin? Whether it’s a cluttered mudroom or a stressful office, start with what drives you most crazy and fix that. You’ll feel better, more motivated, and able to move on to the rest of your house. If you’re hesitant about decorating any room while you have small children, don’t be. Just invest in pillows and keep any other elements above waist level. You don’t need to be afraid of white either; that’s what Clorox is for.
