Floating shelves are so great for display storage, but the clutter comes when there are just too many! Be careful not to over-do it. People add in more shelves when they want more and more storage. Just get rid of some stuff or find another place to store it, such as your garage or attic. As you can see in the picture, it’s still trendy and not over done.

A Lot of Kitchen Accessories

There are only so many cookbooks you need and so many glasses and so many appliances on your countertops. Yes, they are so cute individually, but now there are so many, they blend together and create clutter. Instead, pick a very limited amount of decorative pieces to put out in the kitchen.

Couch Pillow Clutter

We all love couch pillows. They’re comfortable. They cute. They’re the best couch accessory, but too many is too many. Lots of people tend to over do this designer idea. This tends to happen more to small couches, because they tend to think it has to be a certain number no matter how big or small the couch is. Think less is more. That is sure to help out. Even if you have a large couch, try to pick your favorites and downsize the number of pillows.

Pile Up on Table Trays

Designers use table trays because if used correctly, they’re great tools providing an area to be used as a “drop zone” for smaller items. Many people use it for mail instead, and when the mail doesn’t get checked, it piles up and piles up. The table tray clutter starts becoming the main eye drawing area in the whole room. Try to refrain from placing your mail on your table tray.

Stacks on Stacks on Stacks of Books

Stacked books is a very cute trend, but this is one you have to be careful of overdoing. It can easily create a clutter problem. It really just creates piles in every room that are unnecessary if it’s just too many. Try to just minimize the stacked book decor as shown in the picture.

Hopefully, you can decrease the clutter in your home with our tips here. Don’t forget: it mainly comes downs to over doing one cute trend that too much creates clutter. Follow the pictures provided for ideas on how to keep up with the latest in the best ways! Keep it trendy, chic, and decluttered!

A Minimalist Style Approach To Home Decor

Styling when designing often gets a bad rep because people think it just means adding “stuff” and it often does – the shoes by the door, the pile of magazines next to the bed, the extra empty jars placed on the kitchen counter… It can look forced, ‘try-hard’ and cluttered really easily, but styling just means giving a space a sense of a personality. Sometimes, that personality is still quiet and has more of a minimalist style. Any home can have a huge minimalist style breakthrough from following a couple of our tips, so read on ladies!

Keep the color palette very tight.

 Adding a lot of colors is the quickest way to make a space look busy and cluttered. Keeping it tonal (a range of colors in the same color family) and mixing with neutrals is the easiest solution to having some color without it getting crazy.

Bring in simple lines and shapes.

Lose anything with too much ornate detailing or carvings and stick to pieces that keep the eye moving really easily. Add in some cool geometric metal shapes. They add a trendy yet simple look to any room.

Go for texture.

Keep everything in your color palette, but having all your finishes being really smooth and slick can feel cold, so bring in linens, wools, wovens in your textiles and pottery, clay, porcelain in your accessories. Keep the color palette quiet, but the texture still needs to be there for it to look inviting and not like a showroom. Anything handmade is an extra plus.

smaller collections of pieces in the same family

It’s the same bowl, plant, or vase in different sizes and as a collection it holds the dining room table nicely, without creating this huge tablescape that commands the whole room.

Bring in life through art and plants.

Art is your chance to bring in more personality. Keep it simple and quiet, but make a statement to help shake up the seriousness of a more minimalist style home.
