It's easy:1. Choose a theme
2. Select what you love
3. I prefer an odd number of like items-3 is best
4. Color scheme. Whether monochromatic or colors that look amazing together
5. Consider scale and height. Even if you have to put something on a book or pedestal to make it taller & will add interest.
6. Minimalists welcome
7. Use books not magazines (please!)
