My home is full of precious things and I think that this is important. That doesn’t mean that every Mexican hat, bubblegum machine or lava lamp you’ve ever bought (by mistake) or been given (eek!) has a place in your home. Instead think carefully about your memorabilia and take a less is more and quality over quantity approach. Every item has a special significance to me, the first wooden sculpture that my husband and I bought together for our first home (the wooden lady) has followed us for 25 years. And the hand blown glass heart above that lives on my coffee table was bought in Bath on the day my eldest son started in boarding school. Precious. But it does match everything else on the coffee table. I can’t help it.
