''8 Ways to design like a professional''

Whether its drawing art, designing a website, decorating your bedroom, or even designing a dress, you should must know a few things before you start:

1. Communicate, don't decorate
Have a concept before you start. The concept should be clear to YOU and to your audience.

Design with purpose, NOT with randomness.

2. Pick colors that go well together

After all, at the peak of the housing bubble three years ago, editors declared investing in real estate is the way to go, and always asked the question will your property make you rich?

But it's not enough just to think otherwise. So here's a few reasons why it's a good time to buy a home:
