Today I worked with a client on her family room design. She had two wood hutches with beautiful plates and dishes. There was way too many dishes on display at once and it was hard to see some of the really unique pieces on there. We started removing some of the excess pieces and put white placemats under other pieces to highlight them. I found she had a beautiful blue and white tea set there that was lost in the clutter. Now it is the central highlight of the hutch. Lesson here- having "less" pieces on the hutch made the others that were left "more" noticeable.
