Many, many months ago we went through a big change in our house.
We put in new flooring.
I wasn't expecting that the change would mean a decorating overhaul in the rest of the house.
Almost as soon as the floors were done I started to feel like we were being crowded out by all this stuff. I've come to realize that I was using the stuff to distract from the horrible floors.
So, I got rid of the nick knacks.
Now there is a lot more room to breath.
Okay, I didn't get rid of all of my nick knacks. That would just be CRAZY...
For the sake of comparison here is a view of the way it was (oh and I was layering a small sisal carpet over top of the yucky one - a little visual trickery):
