Loving these two library rooms filled floor-to-ceiling with books and injected with black and red for an element of drama.

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.

Little bright spots of order can be transcendent, especially if they’re resolved in a stylish way

You can tell everything in the cubby is purposefully there. With open units like that, belongings need to be edited down for it to look that good.
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.

An unexpected closet in the master bath with a library ladder for reaching items stored in high shelves and cabinets.

Currently swooning over the design projects over at House and Honey. I love the way designer Tamara Kaye-Honey uses updated classics to create elegant yet very livable interiors. My favorites from her:

Did you notice the marble countertop in the kitchen that runs down the sides of the island? That’s definitely going in my dream home inspiration file! What about you, any favorites?
P.S. She also has a decor shop in South Pasadena. I hear it’s filled with a beautiful selection of wallpaper and fabrics, whimsical and playful accessories, and unique pieces of furniture. I must visit!
This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is from the home of fellow design blogger, Bryn of Bryn Alexandra Interiors. Bryn recently created four beautiful bulletin boards to post and organize her inspirations, sketches and fabric swatches. I love the idea of having multiple boards -one for each project. Great for us visually oriented types!
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Bryn’s blog. She’s a very talented interior decorator in Charlotte, North Carolina who regularly blogs about her design projects, DIYs, inspirations, and pieces of her life
I love gallery walls so I was delighted to see this one from Caitlin Wilson‘s home featured in the premiere issue of the Australian online magazine Adore Home. I love the way it’s configured and the chevron pattern as its background!
One of my besties recently got engaged to her long time boyfriend and I couldn’t be more thrilled for her! With the wedding date set for May 2011, the wedding planning is kicking into high gear and this weekend I’m so excited to be joining her for a little wedding dress shopping!
Have a beautiful weekend loves!
This week’s beautifully organized space is from the home of interior designer and fellow design blogger Erica Cook. She keeps her makeup organized in sectioned drawer trays, her jewelry in beautiful boxes, and a few select pieces out to enjoy in perfectly styled vignettes that are free of clutter -only what she uses and loves:

Erica once suggested to me that her and I may be style twins. I’d definitely agree. We have similar taste and seem to be drawn to the same things (case in point: I also have amethyst rocks and tiffany boxes in little vignettes).To check out how uber stylishly this mother of five boys lives, click on over to her blog Moth Design. She shares many other gorgeous shots of her uh-mazing home.
