It’s another day, time for another de-cluttering adventure!
As the most private room in the house, it’s easy to let the bedroom become derelict. dirty laundry on the floor in the closet, magazines piling up on the bedside tables, dust bunnies, bags, children’s toys, all of it ends up here. It’s a shame, because a serene bedroom promotes restful sleep and helps reduce the stress of demanding days.
While other rooms may be difficult to downsize because they perform so many roles, the bedroom is actually very simple. All you need are the basics: nice bedding, crisp window treatments, lighting, a hamper, alarm clock, a candle and a small vase of flowers. Graber swag holders and tiebacks will compliment your windows by creating an elegant touch. Use the Windsor C-Ring Swag holder to create theatrical looking poufs or Bishop’s sleeves. Or use any of the swag holders as medallions to hang all types of draperies from. They are great when trying to cover arch windows.
As you pass through each room, think about the tools you reach for the most and to put them within easy reach. Long-handled wooden spoons will look great in a crock on the kitchen counter and a pot of fresh herbs in a sunny window looks inviting near the stove. A sturdy basket by a favorite chair will hold all of your magazines yet to be read. You will be surprised at the beauty in useful objects when they are artfully displayed.
A good policy to institute with your family is a “One In, One Out” policy. Let something go every time you bring in something else. This way you will easily stay on top of the clutter before it reaches heroic proportions. Like caring for a garden, a little each day will help your home flourish.
