A good tip for magazines that are current reading material is to store them wherever you tend to do most of your reading. Here, a basket next to the sofa makes them easily accessible, perfect for reading while lounging:
You could follow the same idea and place a basket or rack next to or under your nightstand if you read in bed.
Or near your desk if you tend to do your reading there:
Maybe you have a desk that has built-in storage, like the one shown above right (lucky!). Since chances are you don’t, you could consider creating your own storage using display shelves. A magazine wall like this one shown below would be perfect for an office or breakfast nook:
In a later post I’ll go over ideas for storing larger collections of back issues saved for future reference, so stay tuned for that!

Are you on Instagram? I use it every now and then …when my phone will cooperate. I’m planning to use it more often once I get a new phone next week. My current one is incredibly slow, will go to a blank screen even though it’s on, will randomly turn off on it’s own (even though it supposedly still has battery life), among other things (can you tell I’m frustrated with it? lol). You can see my current Instagram photos here. This weekend we’re finally getting around to painting the bedroom so I’ll likely be taking a few progress shots of that. Let me know if you have an account, would love to see your photos!
Absolutely love the look of a marble herringbone backsplash in a white kitchen. These beauties are going in my dream home inspiration file:
Do like Kelly and use a hanging organizer like this one:
The pockets are a good size for jewelry and other small accessories and they’re clear so you can quickly see what you have. Overall it takes up little room – perfect for small spaces!
…colorful outdoor living spaces…
My little patio looks nothing like this and these spaces make me want to change that stat!
Doesn’t all that color lift your mood?
In continuation to the ‘coffee bars’ post earlier this month, a few stylish coffee canisters pretty enough to keep out on the counter:
Which one would you pick for your kitchen?
Why not re-purpose a tiered dessert tray or cake stand and use it in the vanity? It can serve as a creative way to hold and display jewelry, accessories, perfume and/or makeup:
What do you think, would you try this idea?
Taking it easy today to recharge my batteries for the upcoming week. Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!
