1. Fluorescent lights aren’t a good look.

Harsh top-down lighting pools all the light in one space. Instead, use a few smaller lamps to spread the light around and draw the eye to different areas in the room. Check out this cool lamp for inspiration.

2. Leave the red plastic cups at college.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on glassware. Many retailers sell inexpensive sets of glasses, like this suave mustache set.

3. Neutral colors are your friend.

Avoid obvious color patterns. Black, white, and red — or black, white, and blue — may be the most overused and overrated color combination. Go for a more modern and sophisticated look by adding neutrals, such as taupe and gray.

4. Or, if that's not your thing, do the opposite and go bold.

Go the extra mile and paint your walls a bold color like burnt orange, teal, or brick red.
