Have you bought a nice knick-knack once again? Flower? Vase? Cubby or basket? Yes, it's a very feminine problem. There's nothing wrong with that if you know how to expose such "trophies" in the interior so that they won't dominate it. Unfortunately, surfeit is never a good. Excess of objects makes the interior look more like a fairground stall than a living room. But don't worry, you don't have to throw out all your beloved treasures.

Isolate areas

The best idea is isolating areas or specific places where knick-knacks are put one by one. It can be e.g. a shelf above a fireplace, windowsill or top chest of a drawer. Ideally, there should be one or two such places. 

Appropriate exposure

If you want every guest to clearly see all your exhibitions, you have to take care of their placement. Firstly, they can't look chaotic. Secondly, each little detail should make a right impression. An antique furniture should be placed somewhere where nothing will obscure it. Place knick-knacks on the shelves so that they are spread by at least a few centimetres. You can do it by installing appropriate shelves in the room. However, if you expose knick-knacks on these shelves, don't put them on dressers, tables, cabinets, etc.

Another worm-hearted advice is that next time you have to over think buying another knick knack. Do you know how much time you spend vacuuming your collection?
