Choose a sofa with narrow arms to maximize seating, and limit leggy furniture (one or two pieces is enough) to prevent a busy look. H&H senior design editor Margot Austin and her husband Kevin chose white walls to allow their eclectic accessories, art and furniture to stand out. Each new treasure brought in necessitates that another is taken out for a clutter-free look.
