One trick I’ve always loved and do regularly is to take everything out of a room except for the biggest furniture, then start very slowly and judiciously putting things back one at a time to see what works and what is no longer necessary.

Room number 8 is stunning! I really like the mirrors in there, but the whole room just speaks to me!
