What I’m Loving: Less is More for Decor

When I first purchased my house, it was a huge space for someone just out of college who didn’t have nice (or any) furnishings. I made due with what I could pull together from hand-me downs, to things that I found on the side of the road and refinished. I’m so grateful for this time in my life because it taught me the value of working really hard for something and being creative to make due.

As I’ve been able to add more thoughtful pieces to my house, I’ve also had to learn the lesson of taking things away. As a decorator, I like to add more and more pretty things to a space, but sometimes doing less can be significantly more.

Simple style can be really hard to accomplish– but my advice is to actually start with clearing out a room. Ideally this would be done physically, but it can be also done mentally. What do you really need in a room? Where do you sit? What do you frequently use? What don’t you touch at all? Instead of a collection of frames or decor pieces try 1 or 2 and see how much more they stand out.

I plan to do this throughout my home over the next few months and visually declutter.  I can’t wait to share how it goes!
