Ya’ll (ha ha) know that I’m obsessed with HGTV’s show Fixer Upper.  Who isn’t?  You can read more about that here.  They were on the Today Show yesterday and it reminded me that I sent Joanna a message awhile back and I got a response.  I thought you might appreciate my name-dropping today and see what she wrote back!

Here was my question-

I love your show and your design style! I also love the example you set for couples who work together. You show patience and humor and love. And clearly you have family values. My question for you is- I find my home decor getting cluttered quickly. How do you pick fewer pieces for better design and how do I edit my own collections to achieve this? Are there any good rules to follow? Holly @ Style from the Sticks

And here’s her response-

Holly, Thanks for the love and the kind words! I tend to use pieces that can stay through all seasons, as well as pieces that have a story. I am including a blog link about clearing your shelves, and some tips of decluttering. I hope that helps!
