Back to school, time to get organized!


Summer is officially over, kid's are headed back to school, and if you are anything like me, my house gets seriously neglected over the summer months. Between vacations, summer camp's, kids in and out all day long, my house gets turned upside down.

Once September hits, I get the urge to organize, or maybe that's the Virgo in me. There are so many simple ways we can organize our homes, from built in millwork, mudrooms, to baskets & bins.

Let's talk mudrooms. In my opinion, one of the most valuable and useful rooms in the home. They house all of your every day necessities, while keeping your front entrance pretty and clutter free. This custom cubby we designed was very visible, so we went for some serious style along with functionality. You don't have to go over the top with your mudrooms, pre-fabricated cabinets like IKEA will do the trick just fine.

Adding built in's to your living room add valuable storage to tuck away unsightly but necessary items like DVD's, video games, consoles, book and board games. The also add visual appeal to an otherwise boring room with a TV hung on the wall.

One of our recent projects was a small 600'ft condo that desperately needed additional storage. We designed this custom media unit and floating shelves around 2 pouffs which were to serve as additional seating that could be tucked away when not in use. We added some simple distressed floating shelves to display some of the owners favorite collections.

Anyone who knows me or has been in my house knows I have a thing for baskets. Baskets everywhere. Kids rooms can be easily organized with a stylish shelf and baskets. Who doesn't love an on trend belly basket?
