the question seems more to be about the technical issue of merging two styles and not about how to gently break it to your mom that you don't like her style without being ungrateful... to offer some advice, i would say you can try to keep her stuff but maybe hide or highlight them. clutter lining shelves can be covered by adding doors or putting up curtains so that everything can be displayed or reached when needed but still hidden when something more minimal is desired. you could also try asking her if she wants to go through some of the knick knacks that don't have sentimental meaning to her or maybe more tactfully try choosing a couple of items you both like and displaying them more prominently as artwork or tell her that they are enhanced by creating a focal point around them. creative storage/arrangement may also help if there are things that can be organized out of sight into decorative bins or baskets.....
