We could not have stated better the first piece of advice. FIND YOUR STYLE. Doesn't matter what anyone recommends, at the end of the day you have to feel happy in your own environment. Either nautical, boho, Mid century, or any other you prefer, find your own and be comfortable with it. The rest comes with experience.
