It's fairly common to live in a space that lacks adequate storage options. This is especially true for those who live in a compact apartment or townhouse, but often times even more spacious abodes fall short in the storage department. The solution? Get creative with the way you organize and display your possessions. Yes, I know this requires being a bit more organized, but the outcome can look great and can prevent the mad hunt for that item you stashed in the back of a closet or bottom of a drawer.
Above are some beautiful examples of possessions on display. With open shelving in the kitchen, your plates and cookware become art rather than supplies. Are your stilettos piled high in the bottom of a small entryway closet like mine are? Use painted crown moulding to create a feature wall where you can grab and go with ease. Towels, cotton balls and bubble bath become easily accessible and look rather dashing when they aren't chucked under the sink. And who would have thought your clothes could look so beautiful left hanging around? All of these options provide motivation to de-clutter and find re-stored beauty in the everyday. Storage, smorage!
Oh, and to all of my Canadian readers, I hope you had a fantastic Canada Day long weekend! Hubby and I went up to his family's cabin at Nicola Lake to celebrate his mom's birthday and blow out some candles for our 145 year old country. Two celebrations in one day, some sunshine and enough food to feed an army made for a wonderful time had by all. And to our neighbours to the South, wishing you the BEST day tomorrow! xoxo
