Friday Happy Hour: De-clutter

English designer William Morris once said, “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”.  That 1880 wisdom still applies today.  And so, with the middle of summer upon us, perhaps we should step back and de-clutter.  Here are some great tips from Traditional Home that should get you headed in the right direction.

{1} Arrange a Bookcase – group like books together by color and size and sprinkle in favorite items {2} Love your Linens – organize your linen closet into a fresh smelling place you love to open {3} Style a Coffee Table – or better put, shop your own home for items such as vases and trays that you can use to style your own  {4} Make over a mantel – rework your mantel pieces in a symmetrical or asymmetrical design by layering small objects with larger ones.
