Look around in your kitchen and bathroom. There’s probably a graphical vomit of colors, typography, and garish images intruding your home. Our homes are miniature highway billboard galleries of questionable taste, especially our cupboards and bathrooms. You’ve probably blocked it all out over time due to overexposure, but you’d be better off removing most labels or transferring products into unmarked refillable containers (minus prescription medication and hazardous materials, of course).
For example, look at the Crest mouthwash bottle above: I peeled off the label and it’s now 110% more of a pleasing element in the bathroom. I already know what’s in it and how much to use, so there’s no mystery. This simple act of peeling away with the majority of product is a decor staging trick anyone can practice, and you might find yourself in much more soothing environments rather than the equivalent decor of a Cosby Sweater circa 1991.
