Surprising Decorating Tricks That Really Work

On her new TV show, Daykeover With Libby Langdon, the interior designer gives clients a new design scheme in a single day — hence, the show's title. Featured in the December/January issue of House Beautiful, we're getting an exclusive sneak peek at one of Libby's latest projects, along with some surprising styling tricks she swears by! Trust us, you'll want to take note.

Don’t be afraid to block windows: Low pieces like ottomans won’t block views, even if your windows extend almost to the floor. And lean profiles — such as the Parsons-style console — let light and air pass through.

Don't let your walls have all of the fun: Lining the backs of bookcases is a neat trick if you don’t want to go for a full accent wall.

Set up furniture to encourage conversation: Always let the activity of a room dictate the furniture arrangement. For entertaining, chairs are best to create conversation areas for guests, rather than sofas.
