Hutch Decorating Ideas, Tip 1:

Start by clearing out the entire space you are going to style. It was easy with this project because we had just flipped the living and dining rooms. You can read about that here. I put away everything I know I won’t use (in this case any winter greens and decor). Next I bring out anything I “think” I might use. It gets messy!

Hutch Decorating Tip 2:

Using like items in groups of 3 or 5 will make your groupings look better. You can see that I have used this design idea by grouping things together and through out. Three pitchers grouped together in one space or using three to five pieces of wood tone items throughout the entire display. Does that make any sense?

You can see by these pictures, which were all taken on the same day……….things have already changed!
