I've been working on this as well! I try to make all of my purchases - especially if its going to be lying in full sight often- to beautiful on their own (or neutral and easily disappearing into the background).

I've modified the old adage to "Have nothing in your home which you do not know to be useful, AND believe to beautiful."
The time has come, my online friends, to talk of many things:
Of flats, and wool, and all in ones - of breastfeeding and slings-
And why our bed is cramped at night,
and the joy my children bring!
