Paint the wall in flat color then use the same color but in high gloss for the design! LOVE this idea! But flat paint sucks so have to do it in low mess area, don't try it in the bathroom or kitchen, or get a low gloss and high gloss version of paints
The "one touch" rule to avoiding clutter. basically it's simple: everything has a place and every time you use that thing immediately put it back it it's rightful place rather than the counter, the kitchen table, etc.
