More often than not, less is more.
An over-crowded, over-decorated space can look clunky, which is why it’s best to keep it simple. That is not to say you should steer clear of eclectic or bohemian styles, however. As a good rule of thumb, objects in your home should always have a place. Things in messy piles or stacks without purpose weigh a room down in a not so chic way.
