    That’s a tricky question, people have different comfort levels of collectibles and decorative items. Are you display pieces causing problems when cleaning doing tasks like dusting sweeping or vacuuming? That might be the first indicator of having too much.

    Aww yes, declutter. This can be hard because of sentimental value. Depending on how much decluttering you want is how to go about this has.
    One way is to choose one room, pull out all accessories and small furniture, bring it to bare bones. Then look at the room to see if the layout still works.
    Take each item, decide if you love it, group those items. Decide now if you want those items in this room or possibly use in another room. Then the fun begins of placing and layering. Remember, empty spaces are just as nice as accessories, meaning not every surface or wall needs to be decorated.
    Also and very effective is to have one colour through out your walls. White is always a fresh way to lighten, brighten and give it a cohesive McLean look.

    Everything Is Not Needed is what I always say... Only U can figure out what's needed verses wanted... Once that's established U will be fine 😊

    Sometimes less is more. Keep only important pieces. Get rid of little dust collecting items. Donate what you don't need. Clutter can cause stress.

    If you have lots of smaller pieces, think about making small collages in shadow boxes. This way you can display one frame with several pieces in it.

    Good luck!
