7 Solutions for Design Dilemmas


Accessory Overload

You've got flowers and fruits, tassels, and tinsel, vases, and figurines galore. If every visible surface in your home is covered, then it may be time to pull back and rethink. Remember, the eye needs places to rest. A few bare spots are essential; if everything is noticeable, then nothing is.

Solution: Remove all accessories, and then put back only about one-third of them. Banish the remainders to the basement for a month. Occasionally recycle and recirculate. Everything will feel fresh and new again!
