IT'S TIME FOR BOXES

According to the dictates of Feng Shui, oriental art that aims to create a harmonious relationship between the environment and those who live in it to the advantage of the quality of life, in every home (or if there is no place in the house, in every cellar, or garage or terrace blanket) there should be five boxes for five categories of objects: throw away; to fix; to give, exchange or sell; to be moved to another room (or perhaps to the holiday home); awaiting placement / destination. To ensure inner serenity, the boxes must be emptied cyclically. Easter cleaning could be the right occasion to inaugurate the boxes. The boxes can be covered with upholstery paper or they can be decoupled or replaced with large wicker containers, perfect as furnishing accessories whatever the style of the house.

REMEMBER: to have the house in order it is essential that everything has its place. To succeed in this aim, many “dedicated” containers are needed: a large vase holder can be transformed, for example, into a pen holder in which to place ballpoint pens, pencils, markers that are found around. A wicker box with a lid can be used to accommodate slips of paper, stamps, clippings, new batteries, coins and anything else that is usually left on the shelves of the furniture.
