For those of us who love collecting pretty things, there is a problem. When is enough, enough? When do the amazing things we own prevent our style from even being visible? Our style is buried under the clutter. Too much furniture and collectibles wedged into a room not big enough for it all. But we love it all, so how can we get rid of any of it?
I went through this in my living room, especially. It’s a really small space, but I wanted to fill it!
While I loved everything in the room, I realized it wasn’t really the look I was going for. It felt too busy and crowded. I wanted it to feel light and airy, so I started rearranging and editing. I remember having a moment when I stepped back, took in the space, and thought, “There it is! There’s my style.”
(Sorry, I need to take some pictures without the Christmas decor!)
It made giving the piano and curio cabinet away totally worth it. I loved those pieces and felt sentimental about both, but they weren’t supporting the look I wanted in this room.
Kriste and I received a question along those lines, so that’s what we’re rambling about today…
