What Houzz contributors are saying:

Does it call up warm memories? Family photos, artwork made by your child's hands, and heirlooms passed down for generations have the ability to fill your heart with joy just by their very presence in your home.On the other hand, objects that bring up negative emotions qualify as clutter of the most insidious kind. Whether it is a gift that you detest from a well-meaning relative, or a photo that reminds you of a difficult period in your life, these are certainly not things you want on display. If you can't bring yourself to actually get rid of the item, at least keep it packed away where it won't be a daily downer.

Do the colors, textures or patterns inspire you? The colors, patterns and textures that surround us can have a profound impact on how we feel. Pay attention to how you respond to color in your home — it's just as important to remove the colors that make you feel irritable or down as it is to play up the hues you love. Private Comment

keep out things that bring up pleasant memories; not anything negative; feel free to put out a bit more clutter on shelves; add one more shelf in each wall unit

Forget the pix...just wanted to save this comment. Does it resonate with your sense of style and beauty? Home is the only place where we have the power to choose how we want things to look and feel. When you look at something and your heart flutters, you feel uplifted or you immediately think, "That's so me," it's a keeper. We all deserve little moments of beauty for beauty's sake. Does it get in your way? A good sign that something is clutter is if you frequently find yourself annoyed by it. Excessive pillows that must be tossed off the sofa or bed in order to settle in, knick knacks that make cleaning difficult, all of the who-knows-what stuffed into the hall closet that threatens to fall on your head each time you open the door. These are your primary problem areas, so tackle them first.
