Casa Quickie: Group in 3s and 5s

One simple (and free) small change that you can make in your home in minutes is to regroup. As we accumulate "stuff" — things we love, things we inherited, things we can't seem to get rid of — we build up clutter. In extreme cases, this requires a full Spring cleaning, but most of the time, a little regrouping will take things from chaotic to composed. Unless there's a theme that runs through disparate pieces in one place (i.e. a mantle full of green glass), my general rule is to group similar items in 3s or 5s to keep them from looking cluttered. Three white vases. Three wheatgrass planters. Five pillar candles. This small change will make your decorating look intentional, like your possessions belong where they sit rather than like they are in motion.
