As you may or may not know, our beautiful condo hasn't sold yet. It's been a long six months and so we decided it was time for a mini makeover. New real estate agent, new price, and new-ish look. Our new agent has been awesome so far; she brought in a designer to rearrange our furniture and de-clutter. I never saw myself as a clutterbug - I thought my place was quite uncluttered, until I painfully watched the designer take away item after item and set it aside for storage. The designer explained that, although decoration items are really nice and help make a house a home, we want buyers focusing more on the space and less on the furniture + decor. We want them to imagine their furniture in the place, not ours. How about you? What are your homes like? Do you prefer a neatly cluttered look over minimalist design? I personally love both styles, but it looks like I naturally lean towards the former.
Here are some looks to help you decide on your favorite style.
