Q: I have an old 1950's sideboard but I am not sure how to arrange the items on top so they look tasteful and not cluttered. I haven't put much thought into the way they are arranged at the moment — I have no idea what to do! I don't like clutter. I also have a dully-decorated picture shelf (IKEA). There are a few items pictured that I intend to hang above the sideboard, too:

Is there anything I should get rid of? Are there general decorating tips you could advise me about?

Kindest regards,
