I devour home decorating magazines, but every issue I think about the 2 articles that I wish had been written for me:
1. Nighttime decorating. Most of us work during daylight hours, so get to enjoy our homes in the dark. And most home decorating photos are taken in daylight with lots of light, so everything looks gorgeous. I'd love to see story spreads shot exclusively at night, with info on how to make your home attractive after dark.
2. Decorating for renters. Many of us are also renters and are unable to do any renovating or simpler measures such as bolting shelves onto walls. It would be great to see articles on how to makeover a rented house or apartment with restrictions such as: not being able to paint, restricting the number of items that can be hung, floorboards that can't be altered.
