All you need to do is keep thinning things out – keep at it. Home Decorating & creating the Home of your dreams is definitely a work-in-progress.
Make sure that you plan your colors in overview so that they blend, flow & move with ease through your home. Your aim is to develop an overall blueprint, an impression of what you want to achieve, & to have your rooms complement each other.
What colors do you love?, If you love pastel tones, then mix & match their delicate palette hues in overlays of their wonderful soothing, relaxing, merging colors. If you love earthy colors, surround yourself with the earth tones & textures of nature, the autumnal colors, the greens, olives, oranges & yellows.
Don’t feel you have to follow perfect symmetry all of the time – a huge bookcase along an entire wall doesn’t have to mean books all upright in a row like little soldiers, or like a traditional bookshop, library or dad’s study or den.
