I don’t know about you, but I consider “Fixer Upper” star Joanna Gaines to be the Yoda of all things home, home improvement and home decor.

I mean, the woman can literally look at a home that’s in shambles and instantly visualize it in a different, better state — to me, that’s incredibly impressive. So, needless to say, I would listen to any bit of home improvement advice she gave me.

During a recent interview with People, Joanna shared five tips she thinks everyone can (and should) use.

Joanna Gaines’ 5 Design Tips Everyone Can Use:

1. Start with Color

“A fresh coat of paint can completely transform an entire space, so if you’re looking to make a big change, start there.”

2. Attention to Accents

“Textiles, like rugs and throw blankets and pillows, are the finishing touches that really make a room feel finished. If you’re redecorating, don’t count them out.”

3. Be Patient

“Let your house tell your family’s story. Don’t rush to decorate just to have it decorated. Take your time and collect pieces that mean something to you and your family.”

4. Compromise

“If your spouse or roommate has one decorating style and yours is completely different, the best way to settle a disagreement is to give and take. You decorate one space and let their style shine through in another part of the house.”

5. Break the Rules

“You don’t need to follow a specific set of rules with your own home. Do what speaks to you and be unapologetic about it. I always feel most comfortable in a house I can tell is well-loved.”
