Entryway Nook

IMG_0074For so many of my clients the entryway is a very important spot for them. It needs to be functional but also beautiful. Here is my entryway where I placed a storage bench for shoes and I added pillows for a relaxed, cozy look. Above the bench, I added a hanging bin for mail and magazines and a storage compartment for phones, keys and wallets. I added some photos so it wouldn’t look like a storage space but rather a cozy little nook. I also added a clock because we always like to know the time before we run out of the house. The key to good design for a space like this is to stagger all hanging items and have them all in neutral color tones. Give it a try!!

Hooked

img_1788Here is a simple way to keep backpacks, hats and jackets from getting all cluttered by the front door. This adorable piece was given to me for my birthday as a gift but I know my friends got it from etsy. I found the letters from Michael’s and just hung them on for a pop of color and a way to know whose hook belongs to whom. It’s an easy way to stay organized plus it looks cute too!

Mason Spice Jars(Organization)

Mason Spice Jars(Organization)image┬áSo now that I’ve moved into a new house I am reorganizing all of my drawers and closets so I should have some new organizational ideas for everyone. ┬áHere is my new mason jar spice drawer that cost me very little to do. The jars were $1.99 from bed bath and beyond and I found these two spice jar inserts from there as well for $14.99. I then used Averys design center and printed my own spice labels. Give it a try!
