I find that the one aspect of interior decorating that is the most daunting is working out when enough is.... enough! When does detail topple over into clutter? Or at what point does a minimalist space just feel a little too empty? Balance is all about feeling harmonious in a space and how we feel in our homes is different for everybody. And so there are no hard and fast rules in this regard. I find that the best indicator is your gut instinct - stop, look and feel. Are you at peace in your space? If you feel like you're living with too many things then you know it's time to par back. On the other hand, if you feel as though you're swimming in a fish bowl - then it's time to go shopping! When in doubt - turn to the Europeans (particularly the Nordic kind!) - as they always get it right!
