Out with the old to organize your home

Easy organizing with shelves with baskets

If you’re sick and tired of your disorganized home, and you’ve resolved to finally do something about it, the first thing you need to do is clean out. Take a day (or two) to go through closets, shelves, boxes and overflowing drawers to get rid of items you don’t need. A good rule of thumb is, “if you don’t use it, lose it.” Give to charity, pass on to friends or family or sell it. Once you get rid of useless items that just take up space, you’ll be amazed at how much better every room in your home looks.

Add storage solutions to every room in your home

Organizing with decorative shelves will will please the eye and be functional as well.

Once you’ve cleaned out your unused items, it’s time to find storage solutions for items you do have. Time to tidy up the books and magazines piled on desks and coffee tables and the clothing piled on the bedroom floors. Rather than drowning in clutter, invest in some book shelves for your must-reads.  In addition, consider installing floating shelves for collectibles or placing belongings in nice baskets under tables or on shelves.

Find storage furniture

Think about investing in furniture that doubles as storage units. There are beds, ottomans, coffee tables and more that have ample space hidden within to instantly eliminate clutter. This is especially useful if you have young children — just pop the toys into an ottoman that doubles as a coffee table to tidy the living room in no time. Do you have an old shelving unit in the garage that you’re not using?  Give it a fresh coat of paint and a new home in a room that needs organized.

 

Use wall space to keep your home tidy

Save space with a wall organizer

Maximize vertical space by adding hooks and shelves where you can. This will get things off the ground and create more space. Everything from laundry bags on a hook behind the door (rather than in a basket on the floor) to extra coats on hooks in the hall. This beats shoving things into the closet and makes for a much tidier home.  You can even hang up extra blankets in the guest bedroom if there’s no room to house them elsewhere. Think of unusual spaces and places you can use for storage.

 Keep it going

Keep It organized

If you want to  really stick to your resolution to be more organized this year, try to stay consistent and keep it going. Just doing it once and then immediately falling back into old patterns won’t get you anywhere.  For example, do a little bit every day and when you’re in the mood! Promise yourself that once you have storage solutions you’ll actually use them. Equally important, let your family members know too! This means no more clothes on the floor and no more books on the kitchen table. Get rid of what you don’t use and make sure you stay committed to staying organized.

Happy Organizing!

From Classic to Contemporary and Everything in Between!

Fall Trends That Are Taking Over This Year

It’s time to get ahead of the game and start preparing for your fall home décor makeover!

The stores are clearing their shelves of summer home décor to make room for fall. A great way to get started is by reading my list of 2018 fall trends!

Bolder and brighter hues are on the horizon for this fall

Blue and Orange what a complimentary combination!

Brighter and bolder are going to be a big hit for fall trends this year.   How do you pull this off with success you might ask? Try pairing this blue hue  with cinnamon and orange, natural woods, and cream. In addition, I recommend starting small with this hue and see how you like it in your interiors before adding more. A few additional items in  these colors I suggest looking for are: candle sticks, lanterns, window treatments, throw pillows and blankets. Stop by my new retail boutique or send me a message if you’d like more help implementing one of these colors to your home!

Add mood with matte black

Ah-ha, another color to keep your eyes peered for this fall! This one can be rather easy to bring to your fall style this year. I love matte black light fixtures and recommend looking for these if you’re wanting to add some matte black this season. The black color adds a dark tone of fall, while lanterns, lamps and lighting add warm hues to your interiors during those chilly days and nights!

Cozy up the bedroom or living room with prints and fur

Colorful pillows and cozy throw

My favorite way to add new style and flare to a bedroom this fall is with pillows and throws!  If you’re wanting a fall bedroom to like you’ve seen in the magazines, mix and match. Bedding sets are on a decline, while mixing and matching colors and textiles are on the rise. By creating your own look you will add a sense of unique style to your bedroom – plus it can be a lot of fun! I recommend trading your white sheets or coverlet for patterns or solids.  Also, if you’re like me and love a cozy retreat, faux fur throw blanket or pillows are a fantastic way to complete your cozy oasis.

From copper to brass

Brass Coffee table adds brightness to a room!

Copper has been trending in home decor for sometime now, and while copper is quite timeless, the trend has recently changed to brass. Although brass is quite similar to copper, it does have a lighter tone to it. Similar to the copper trend, you can add brass to your home décor through furniture accents, and accessories. This is a great way to start a new fall trend in your home.

Smooth and silky velvet

Velvet is a luxurious looking and feeling fabric that you just can’t keep your hands off of. This fabric is sure to be a perfect way to welcome fall into your interiors! The thing I love about velvet is that it doesn’t take much to make a statement. For example, by adding one piece of velvet furniture or a couple accessories the mood of your interior will change. Furthermore, if you’re seeking to add a visual wow factor, a little luxe and a sense of coziness, velvet is the way to go.

Remember, your home and interiors are most importantly about your style and what you like. Just because these are trending, doesn’t mean you need to go and throw out all of spring’s trends. Nor do you need to implement every trend every season. Similarly, some trends you will like, others you won’t, and that’s okay! In contrast, trends are a great way to keep up with refreshing your style and trying new things. Finally, I hope you enjoy some of the fall trends this year, and let me know how I can help you with transforming your home for the fall season.

Tell me what you think! What is your favorite way to get your home ready for fall? Are you ready to start a new design project but not sure where to start? Send me an email or call to schedule a consultation today!
