I've only just come across this post.. but thought I would just point out for janedale &co that making your home look 'perfect' or photoshoot ready is like therapy for some of us!!! We're not obsessively, desperately trying to keep up with the jones's, or the professed latest interiors trend, pretend we're something we're not .. etc etc.. It comes naturally, is enjoyable, and gives purpose to the mundane, all-day-every-day task of 'tidying up' (grooaann.. ;)) . By all means give your opinion, just thought i'd provide the other side to the story.. Don't know if anyone who reads this article in the future will agree??

Love the look but small dog enjoys chewing things like that.

Well I'm from the future, 321olo! Yes, I do agree. My place is naturally tidy with a place for everything and everything in its place so it could look 'staged' were you to pay an impromptu visit! I feel happier like this and it's great to come back to at the end of the day... No pile of dishes in the sink, unmade beds etc and 'paper'/business stuff gets dealt with 'as I go along'...
