Category Archives: organizing with baskets
This week’s beautifully organized space is from the home of interior designer Amy Meier. Since she and her husband eat most of their meals on their patio dining table, Amy used the “dining area” of her small apartment to create a fully functioning office for her design business.
A large Ikea bookcase provides easy access to fabric samples and papers carefully organized into a mix of woven and wire baskets, bins, and fabric covered binders. A magnet board next to her metal desk serves as a place for Amy to post pictures and paint and fabric samples that inspire her projects.
A trio of white shelves and a three pocket file holder take advantage of wall space and provide a place to hold a multitude of items including fabric covered albums, leather boxes, and sketchbooks.
Beautiful boxes, a basket, and vintage suitcase provide ample storage and keep the color story consistent. A white stand near the door keeps umbrellas contained and readily accessible. The dark wall colors (love those stripes!) help the TV and DVD player”disappear” and keep them from being eyesores.

This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is the home office of interior designer Melissa Warner.
Metal locker baskets with labeled tags contain and organize her many fabric swatches. The bookcase makes use of vertical space.
On the other end of the room, closet doors covered in a bold over-scaled poppy print wallpaper make the room feel lively and hide more storage. A skirted glass-topped table provides a surface on which to lay out swatches and plans for her designs, while a Lucite chair helps keep the space looking uncluttered by taking up little visual space.

A tote basket is a beautiful solution for containing and conveniently transporting files and/or project supplies from room-to-room.

I’m loving these hand-woven fair trade imports from Tango Zulu:
P.S. You can also use ’em as market totes, magazine holders, picnic baskets…there’s a multitude of uses!
