In love with this creative workspace from the home of Darcy Miller, illustrator and editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings. It’s the chicest craft room I ever did see! It’s not only fully stocked with all the supplies you could ever need for any creative project, but it’s also beautifully organized. Everything has a home designated based on frequency of use, so things are accessible and easy to find. With the exception of the art supplies which bring a cheerful rainbow array of color to the space, most everything (the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, and storage containers) is black, white, and gray. This creates a uniform look and keeps the room from feeling chaotic or overwhelming.

Came across this glam brass holder and colored pencils set and thought I’d share.

Today participating in the How I Organize series, is the beautiful and talented Melissa Warner of the design firm Massucco Warner Miller. She gives us a peek inside her team’s beautifully organized LA studio:
When we moved into our new West Hollywood design studio, we wanted to restructure the way we organized our fabric library. Although we’d never compile an entire room from our fabric library, we do love to have our favorite fabrics and wallpapers at our fingertips, to use to add that final touch on a room scheme, or sometimes even inspire an entire room’s palette. The fabrics are organized by color and then type (geometric, floral, stripe, solid/linen/velvet/etc.) and with the clear doors it’s very user friendly and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for!
It’s Friday again! Can you believe it? The weeks are just swooshing on by! I’ll leave you with fantastic high/low home studio. Can you tell which one cost $14,651 (high) and which one cost $4,801 (low)?

Speaking of gift wrap how great would it be to have a dedicated space for wrapping? This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is this closet turned wrap studio from the home of writer Sally Horchow.
It’s perfectly outfitted with a custom height desk built to be comfortable for her to stand in front of and a slotted wall with movable hooks to hold wrapping accessories. A big roll of kraft paper (her favorite blank canvas) lives on the desk for easy access, as does her dry erase board which she uses to jot down reminders. Top shelves house her grab-and-go host presents and special sheets of paper neatly hang on door racks. Extra tall drawers with dividers make it easy to see wrapping paper rolls. Baskets hide leftover scraps to be reused for accents or gift cards.

This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is from the home of graphic designer and fellow blogger, Sheila Vu, a.k.a. Miss Vu. She keeps her desk clean and uncluttered, organizes her pens, pencils and markers, etc. in pretty cups from Anthropologie, and my favorite thing of all, has created a giant wall calendar using numbered large black squares. I love that it not only can be used for organizational purposes, but it makes a beautiful graphic statement.
While browsing through Sheila’s flickr albums I noticed she had archived other photographs of her home office. She has used the wall space above her desk to display, organize, and change as needed, the images that inspire her creative work. Keeping the inspirations in this dedicated area, keep them from looking messy or too chaotic. Take a look at how it has beautifully evolved since January of 2008:
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.
