Morning All! Happy Monday…you got this!! Lately, I have been feeling like I need to inject a little more pretty into some of the hardworking areas of the house. A quick pick-me-up (because let’s face it that is the speed life is moving at these days) is to break out those trays you have stored away and corral “like things” in a way that makes you feel both more organized and stylish! Think clean, not cluttered. Some of the best areas to get the greatest impact are the kitchen, the washroom vanity, and the home office (all places things tend to linger). Here are some inspirational examples from around the web:
For the washroom:
For the kitchen:
For the Kids and/or Home office:
and a Gorgeous Tray Bar (perfect for all the upcoming holiday entertaining):
So pull out those trays you have tucked away and pick one area of your home to stylishly organize. And don’t shoot the messenger but before you know it, we will be bringing out our holiday items like this adorable kitchen coffee set-up:
Hello All! I am still thinking about the wonderful Mother’s Day Brunch we had with our family. It was so nice to get everyone together, and while we couldn’t be outside, it was fun to come together and celebrate the Moms.
Speaking of getting outside, it is gorgeous here today so I made myself several lists (doesn’t everyone?). I know I get this crazy quirky trait from my Dad who still organizes his lists by the weather. Outside projects to be tackled are on one yellow pad, inside on another…naturally. So, in the midst of tackling home and office projects, I am helping my friend style her gorgeous house in advance of her bridal shower this weekend. It was a last minute, let’s do it! so all items had to be sourced locally, not even Amazon Prime could save us. We hit Target, TJ, Michaels, and Lowes and I cannot wait to show you the styled result. Here are some before and afters of their house that I worked on beginning last year, future posts on this to come (with sources):
This was a fantastic project from start to finish because I got to work with people I love, who were adventurous and creative with design and laying out everything from scratch was.the.best. Who knew choosing where the outlets go could make you giddy…oh wait that’s just me? Anyhoo, looking forward to styling this gem with all our fab finds! Sneak peek- we are incorporating this Ikea chair they fell for and the color is AWESOME in the space!
