Hey Just one or two comments- 1. I LOVE All of the above- it gave me ideas I want for my own! Thank you 2. Family on Display- maybe just the Living one- I say that because have deceased relatives up on my walls brought me down. I opted to move them to an album. Feng Shui recommends living ones too. 3. Books pick up smells. So if you do it, have some high ceiling or ventilation? I ended up getting rid of a lot of books because they collect dust across their tops and they brought smells in that stood out when I had open windows for a couple of days then closed the space up again. They seemed to have a life of their own. I kept the favorites and put them in a large lidded tub/bin with a few of my favorite scented tea bags- Early grey in one and Lady Grey in another one- now they smell like tea. Thanks!!
