Are you guilty of any of these home design pet peeves? Maxwell Ryan of Apartment Therapy dropped by this episode of Mondays With Marlo to share three design faux pas that he sees often.

The first is when all the furniture in a room matches -- it's not necessary to buy the entire line when choosing furniture. The second is when all the furniture is brand new. Consider adding some vintage pieces instead. Finally, when all the art in a home is reproduced posters, there's no personal expression in the space. The home lacks a personal touch.
