Wonderful, very helpful post! Thank you so much! I love learning decorating tricks like these.


I'm really loving this blog. Everyday I look forward to seeing more pictures of your projects, ideas and home. Thank you!


WoW! Thank you so much for this post - just what I needed to learn! :-D

Do you have any good tricks for hanging stuff on the wall too?


Thanks for this post! Very helpful!


Dear Benita

I love this post - and I hope it´s ok that I´ve posted it here.


WOW! This is what I always struggle with, displaying items. I have great stuff but I am not good at grouping or displays. Thank you so much! Please continue to teach more on this subject.


I LOVED this post. I am a visual learner and I totally loved how you explained how to make things look great. I have to go now, I have lots of stuff to regroup. Thanks!!!

PS How bout a post on how to hang pictures and make them look good?


Love this post Benita!!! Have a great weekend!


thanks for this post. i am off work sunday and monday and am going to put these principles of design to get my items into a great vignette. thanks


Thankyou for being so generous. That is very helpful.

I really enjoyed this post and now I'll always have your advice in mind when displaying ;-). Thanks!


Really good tips.
But unfortunately my boyfriend is an "space eater", he leaves, the keys, the watch, papers, every little space I leave emply...imposible to keep the shelves quite organized.

I should tell him to read your blog.

Thanks for all


Thanks for your great tips. I can't wait to try them.

I really like your blog, keep on the good work!!

This is ace! Thanks for the tips, i love the idea of leaving negative space around stuff, similar to graphic design principles which is really cool :)

Love the how-to's you do, they are very inspirational :)

Jag håller precis på och inreder ett nytt hus och dina tips kommer vara till ovärderlig hjälp, tack!

Every single day I am so inspird by your home. I love your info. about visual triangles and using space.
What are your rules for editing? I would love to hear how you get your fabulously pared down look.
Blessings to you .carol

LOVE this post! I've linked to it over at my blog as well. This is such an informative topic!


Something I didn't know (consciously) but funny how I've always displayed things in uneven numbers!


Really nice post. I know some of this intuitively, but not all of it, and it is nice to see it to refer to later.


Benita, I hope that you and the family are well, and that everything is fine in your part of the world. Three days without a post from you is sort of like three days without sunshine. Your posts always brighten my day. Hope to hear from you in a post soon. Take care, Jay


Oh Benita, thank you so much for this post. When grouping objects, sometimes I like, sometimes I don't. I´m sure that with your tricks I'll do it better and easier.
Your blog is a MUST !! :)


Rachel, Rachel, Peacock Modern and sidsel, thank you so much for linking! So Sweet of you :)

I'll definitely consider the picture hanging post request. Will have to have a proper think about it first though...

carol kradolfer, this may answer your question on editing.

Benita- Thanks for the 10 organizing tips. I am using the give away bag tip and I am working on realizing that ,in a 100 life times ,I'll probably never use all the stuff I have, so I can let it go. YEAH!
You are so inspiring. Thanks again.


it looks super Benita. lovely post.


WOW! This is a great idea. I will definitely do this in my office area. Thanks for the post. I might post this idea in my blog as well....
