When it comes to our homes, it is entirely possible to have too much of a good thing. Things like too much wood, too much leather, and too much of the same metal finish throughout a home can make a home look heavy.
The trick is to keep visual weight in mind in your home. Too many sturdy, heavy pieces will make a room feel weighed down while too many lightweight pieces can make your home feel unfinished.
Substantial wood items not only look heavy but are heavy! So think about a home with wood floors, wood cabinets, wood tables, wood bedroom sets, wood dining room sets...it can start feeling tired and heavy...and therefore make you feel tired and heavy. We don't want that!
