When it's your job to interview interior designers and write about beautiful homes, there's no doubt you learn the dos and don'ts of decorating. But we'll be honest with you: Styling a statement room involves a certain degree of trial and error, and few know this better than MyDomaine editors.

To save you time and effort, we tapped our team of editors to share their biggest decorating regret—the trend that doesn't translate, the décor that's impractical, and the items we'd never buy again.
