POPSUGAR: Where should someone start decorating when they move into a new place and have nothing?
Shannon Smith: Start with the staple pieces. You're going to need a place to sit and a place to sleep, at the very least. If you're unsure of the direction you'd like to go with the design of your space, stick with a neutral palette to start off with. If you choose large neutral pieces to start with, you can add in texture and color with art and accessories!
