3 Organization & Storage Tips

Clear the clutter and make room for spacious living with our tips for organizing and storing. Optimize and maximize your use of shelves, baskets and organizers, and start loving the small space you’re in!


Tip: Vary the heights of objects

If your shelf “moment” or vignette is starting to look drab, rearrange objects and vary the heights of each display for visual interest. Group similar or like items together and make sure smaller items are in the front; place your tallest objects in the back. Then, take a few steps back and look at the shelf display. If your eyes are able to go from one display to the next without getting distracted by an ill-placed item or flat “moment”, you’ve done your job!


Tip: Conceal the mess

Cool, clever, mess-concealing furniture throughout the house is a must-have for any home. From lidded tables to drawers and lidded benches, corral ands tore loose items inside furniture that will help conceal clutter.


Tip: Tell a story

When you see the above picture, you might get a sense that the person who lives here loves spending her days curled up with a soft throw on the love seat while reading one of her favorite titles. The styling and organization of the console table tells a story, and you believe that it’s filled with the homeowner’s beloved personal items. Your “story” can come in the form of a color, pattern, theme, or whatever you fancy—so long as the vignette reflects you!
