One week from today (on Sept. 13) the highly anticipated Missoni for Target line will be available. I personally am excited for all the colorful home accessories. Love that they’ve included stylish storage pieces in the mix Can’t wait to see them in person!
Hi all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Wanted to share with you the lovely little binders pictured above, I came across recently. They’re made of hard wearing cloth and decorated with folio embossed kitchen symbols on the spine and on the front. So perfect for beautifully organizing recipe tearsheets and online printouts. Bummer they don’t sell ‘em in the States (the company Bookbinders Design is based out of Stockholm).

Love the way a grouping of matching pencils in a single color looks. They make a stylish and functional desk accessory. White ones seem to look particularly chic:

How great is this walk-in closet?
Loving how everything is so perfectly folded, hung and arranged by type and color. Definitely a thing of luxury to have that much space (and that many clothes and shoes!)

Loving the this little box from Ikea. So perfect for organizing a makeup drawer. It compartmentalizes and gives a home to mascara, lipstick, nailpolish, etc. so they’re accessible and easy to find. Here it is in action:

Stylist Rebecca Omweg took plain, inexpensive cardboard bankers boxes and created not just a great storage solution for her space, but also a graphic statement. I love that the uniformity creates a clean and streamlined look. The boxes are placed atop wall mounted shelves and labeled with stenciled numbers. A master list details what’s inside each one so things are accessible and easy to find.

Adding shelves in the bathroom can be a great small space solution. They allow you to maximize storage by utilizing vertical wall space, and they provide a great spot for extra towels, soaps, toilet paper, other bath products, and decorative objects:
The above bedroom is by designer Adrienne Neff. She used California Closets custom units to create one side with hanging rods and drawers below, plus a tie rack; and the other side with shelves and vertical hanging space for dresses. Shelves above the bed provide a space for off-season clothing. The side storage is concealed with felt cutains suspened from a track, while the shelves above the bed are concealed with a linen-blend roman shade. The custom headboard, the rich chocolate brown paint that matches the shelving, and the swing arm sconces, keep it from having a “living in a closet” feel.
This bedroom is by Sherry and John of Young House Love. They used two Ikea wardrobes on either side of the bed. One for her, one for him, each customized with drawers and rods and hidden behind white curtains hung high. A valance gives it a finished effect and makes it feel like the bed is tucked into a built-in nook.
