The worst things to buy at HomeGoods

Kristen says these are not the best for interior design. Instead, go for more abstract pieces.

These tend to look fake, especially the colorful ones. Kristen recommends creating your own floral arrangements instead.

If you want your home decor to be timeless, these are not a good fit.
