Too much clutter in the living room!


On Saturday, I plopped the second-hand basket onto the pony-hair stool in the living room, and all of a sudden I couldn't handle the amount of stuff in there.



So I took some out...It probably looks unchanged to you, but the couch cushions are gone, bunnies are gone, the books under the window are stacked neatly, books on coffee table straightened, and the box of garage sale cast-offs that was hiding behind the couch is going out into the garage...

This is what we are left with...better*!
I moved the basket into the dining room...

ps. The radio went upstairs into the master bedroom a couple of weeks ago...I STILL wasn't spending time in the living room...the living room & dining rooms are only used when we have guests, sad, but true

*My husband says I tend to over crowd a room in the beginning, but end up with a more minimalist space in the end...I think he is right...he likes to be right!

  1. I find that I hit an invisible wall of clutter/stuff and it all has be sorted right.now. Never know when that is though!

    Looks lovely - I need to get at the kitchen and also the basement media room. I think that the clutter is quietly breeding.

  4. I'm glad I'm not alone... I can't handle too much stuff either - it actually makes me unsettled when there is clutter around me... yes I probably need therapy too:) Your place is beautiful, magazine worthy.

  7. Moving the bunnies (and other things) out was a good idea. I would be holding my breath having your boy so close to them. I love your little guy...so cute with a big round head. :-)
