One sure way to a tacky house? Overcrowded shelves and loads of crammed objects. Almost anyone with any interior design wit will tell you that the first step to a redo is to declutter. Thom Filicia, one of the original set of "eyes" from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, now hosts his own gig on Tacky House, in which he reveals quick tips to spruce up your home. Though he's already given us his top decorating tips, he's always got more up his stylish sleeve. Lucky for you, I'm taking notes and passing them on to you.His first nugget of wisdom? Shift your books. While bookshelves may scream for you to push every text you own into the space like a library aisle, consider a different approach. Stack the books horizontally instead of vertically. It looks cleaner and can create a stage for another decorative object. Keep your eyes peeled for my next tip from Thom Filicia!
