Conclusion: Nina Hartmann Says “Have A Thread”


Listing my life
making an inventory
that's the way to perfection
no disorderliness
all of it lined up on the shelf
nothing lacking
except what was sold
put on exhibit and sold in a sale
gone forever at a cheap price

Nina suggests to "have a thread" -- a theme -- going on in your decor. 

There’s a thin line between having a collection and a flea market. 

Group like with like, color with color.

This is critical in small spaces.

Less is more.


I hope you enjoyed this series!

Until next time, stay shabby!

Dearest Sandy,

Those words by Nina Hartmann are so true. Often things look like a flea market. A home should reflect the character and history of the persons living there and show 'A Thread'...
Love to you,

I've enjoyed every installment of the Nina Hartmann book. I can wait to get my own copy. Sounds as if the reading is just as wonderful as the pictures.
