    Also let me know what topics you want me to cover next. The most upvoted comment/topic suggestion will be made into a video in the upcoming weeks.

    1. While a bit specific, I would love at least a part of a video covering how to handle rental spaces with wall-to-wall, gray/tan carpet. I’m finding it very difficult to design my living room since rugs are generally difficult to incorporate on top of existing carpet and the general beige-y, drab feel of the room makes it hard to know some colors to compliment/liven it up.

  2. I don’t seem to have a problem with hanging art work or curtains properly. Ive bought the right size rugs, side tables & lamps.
    I like a NEUTRAL pallet that I can change easily with diff colors & accessories but all that being said I’m still one of those MATCHY-MATCHY people that likes to buy everything at once from the same store.

  3. For hanging TV too high, I do agree mounting at the eye-level is ideal but it also depends on the location and condition of the studs in the wall. If the TV is too heavy, it’s impossible to use a full motion wall mount since pulling a heavy TV too far away from the wall will likely overload the stud. If you have a fireplace, mounting TV above it seems like the only choice.

  4. Hey Reynard thnx for sharing these awesome tips 🤩.. Am guilty of hanging small art piece way higher to the sofa in my parent’s living room 😬..
    Do give tips on how to style n arrange everything in a small single rented room with just a door n a ventilator above it.. Vl appreciate it 😊..
    Stay Blessed Stay Happy Always 🧚‍♀️🦄🌈🧿😘🥰🤗

  5. I completely agree with you about not mounting a TV above a Fireplace. You see this so often in Home Tours. It is a very bad practice.

  6. what was that software you used for the layout design? Also, really great video.. you should start a podcast too if you don’t have one.

  7. I know this is the most random question, but can you please let me know where did you get your cardigan from?

  8. I have watched many of your videos and I think your taste is impeccable, I have learned a lot that I have started to use in my own home. Can I also say you have the pleasantest and most relaxing voice on YouTube .

  9. Hi Reynard, i wonder if you’re able to give us some recommendations for our living room. We just got a giant Japanese art work and we put it above the fireplace. It’s very nice but has strong vibes of samurai. I have been looking for something that can tone it down (decorations next to that art work.) If you have ang recommendation, please let me know. I appreciate. Btw, I love all your videos. Your videos inspire us alot ❤

  10. I really enjoy your videos. Would you be able to do one on how to decorate book shelves in a living room?
