The Nest Q&A

We finally got a china cabinet. Any good advice on how we should organize it?

A.

Phew. Now you can get all those boxes out of your in-laws' garage. Approach this project as if you were filling an empty bookshelf. It's a visual balancing act between different colors, shapes and sizes. Start in the middle and work around it. What deserves center spotlight? That's totally up to you. Pick your favorite item or a good attention-grabber, like an oversized platter, cool cake stand or tea set. This requires some trial and error, so be prepared (and careful) when playing with your pieces!
