The biggest question people ask is how to mix the transitional look into their home without the stress and expense of a complete makeover. “The answer is simple,” Rose says. “Edit, edit, your home.” Editing, in interior design terms, means getting rid of stuff, or as Rose calls it, Tchotchke’s: a term with Jewish origins and defined as a small bauble or miscellaneous item. “De-clutter. Strive for a lighter look,” Rose suggests. “Change your lamps. Add lighter bedding. Remove heavy, dark drapes. Minimalistic is IN. Subtlety makes all the difference in your home today.” Upon following that advice, a client told Rose she felt as though a weight had been lifted off her shoulders and found her home to feel less suffocating.
