Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is from Caroline‘s tiny 475 sqft studio apartment. I love how she maximized storage potential by using over the door shoe racks to organize her collection of shoes. Don’t they look so pretty arranged by color?
You can find shoe racks like the ones Caroline used here.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

Loving these beautifully organized kitchen shelves from the home of Alexx and Paul featured in issue 7 of Covet Garden. Particularly drawn to the repurposed similarly sized glass jars which hold spices idenitifed with handwritten labels. So perfectly imperfect -charming and homey :)

Closet Offices

With the help of a few shelves, office storage, and task lighting, you can put a closet to work and turn what might otherwise be a dumping ground for random clutter, into a highly functional space.

Heidi’s Home Office

Recently was delighted to stumble upon this lovely office from the home of fellow design blogger Heidi of A Thousand Laughing Starfish. I’m loving the pops of color, the orange chair with nailhead trim detail, the blue knobs on the desk, and the vase filled with vibrant fresh flowers.
