One of my fave bloggers, Melanie over at You Are My Fave, posted about clutter. She makes a great point that one of the more appealing things we may not even realize about homes we see in design mags is that they're not cluttered. I never really thought about it that way. This all reminded me of the life changing book I read, It's All Too Much by Peter Walsh. (he's also Oprah's organizing guru) He talks about the different reasons people have so much clutter, and thereby gives you solutions that will work for each person. It's a really quick read and I promise it will change how you look at things/objects. Now all you have to do is get it and just not lose it amongst the clutter! (That's right, Lauren, I'm talking to YOU! lol)
