1. Put "you" in your home.
"[Decorate] with accessories that you love and make you happy. You can display your family photos, DIY decor, and a couple of your travel finds."
2. Group related accessories.
"Arrange accessories by groups of colors and [themes] to have a unified feel. For instance, you can display your vases with similar silhouettes together, all ethnic pieces together, and so on."
3. Use accessories to define areas.
"Area rugs and lighting fixtures can define spaces instead of simply putting a divider, which can cramp small spaces."
4. Edit, edit, edit.
Don't display everything at once. Prioritize the things you love. You may choose to display and highlight your collections.
