Last week, I didn’t have a chance to talk about my last topic for my kitchen which is styling. When I say styling the kitchen, I’m talking not only to possibly obtain a nice picture for the blog, but also to get a good setup for how the kitchen is used daily.
What I’ve realize by looking at some of my saved images on Pinterest, is that my favorites are the rooms that keep “styling” at a minimum. But to contradict that, sometimes the best pictures are of spaces that have a lot going on and that look “lived” in.

So I guess what I’m wondering is how much is too much when it comes to revealing a space on a blog? Do you take the extra step and make it look as if the space is being used (like the last image), or do you simply tidy up the space and toss in a plant and then snap away?!
