Secrets of Small-Space Decorating
Limit collectibles. Display your collection with space around it, or choose one favorite piece, as opposed to 10, and allow it to become a focal point.
Simplify live displays such as a huge vase of flowers or a group of houseplants. Instead, set out a bowl of apples or a single-bloom orchid.
Use see-through, pale-colored or reflective accessories that blend into the background to keep your eye traveling smoothly around the room.
