Here is an excerpt from our Sophisticated Fairy Gardening ebook on decluttering and simplifying:
“Less is More
The three critical words of design: less is more. Focus on doing fewer things really well to create more of an impact. This idea resonates through all types of design, not just garden design. The smartest-looking interior design photos are usually very simply decorated with clean lines, patterns and colors that are chosen individually for their strong presence. The reason books are printed with margins around the side, and why paintings look better in frames, is because of the white-space, or visual-relief, that is created around the words or artwork. The white-space gives the chance for the eye to rest and it balances the visual impact in our brains so we can see and synthesize the information more efficiently.
Doing more with less is may be why your fairy garden doesn’t look right. By cluttering the scene with multiple patios with pathways going to and fro, filling the patios with swings, furniture sets, houses and fairies with stairs leading here and there to nowhere, nothing really stands out to the viewer. The scene is clumped together in the mind as one heap of accessories.
To undo and redo, clean all the accessories out of your fairy garden and sort them into two groups, ones that you really love and adore, and ones that you don’t. Put only the accessories that you adore back into your garden by grouping them into smaller scenes. Gift the rest to your local girl scouts, sell them at a garage sale or give them to a thrift store.”
