  3. Accessories are not an afterthought—they’re a line item.
  4. Less is more, bigger is better.
  5. Surround yourself with original art work—even your child’s!
  6. Never buy the set—matchy-matchy is nasty-nasty.
  7. Customize, customize, customize!
  8. Leopard, cheetah and zebra are neutrals.
  9. No second-guessing along the way—a room isn’t done until it’s done-done.
  10. Once you’ve experienced the Fiddlehead process, you’ll never look back.
