How Laura Organizes Her Shoes


This month's first guest participating in the 'How I Organize' series is the incredibly chic Laura of Laura Cattano Organizational Design and of the blog The Order Obsessed. She shows us how she beautifully organizes her shoes in her dressing area:
My dressing area is set up like my personal boutique with everything organized and displayed beautifully. This Lack bookcase from Ikea fits three pairs across perfectly, and there's room in the back for my special occassion shoes stored in their original box. Positioning the shoes front to back saves space. Off-season shoes are put away to give more room and so I'm not distracted by ones I can't wear now.

Trays for Controlling Bathroom Clutter


If you like having your products out where you can see 'em, (as opposed to inside a cabinet or a drawer), consider using a tray to contain them. They look so much neater in a tray than when they're spread out everywhere, and, especially when the product packaging is pretty, can look like a beautiful little vignette.
Also, since a tray gives you boundaries to work with, it can help you edit down your products to just what you actually use on a regular basis.

Good Morning


Hello! Today I'm excited to announce that the blog will be getting a new look this week! The design is done, programming is currently underway, and it will be up sometime in the next few days. I'll be switching over to Wordpress - keeping my fingers crossed that the switch goes smoothly!

Happy Friday!


It's been a busy week and I'm looking forward to some leisurely time. Maybe a bit of sleeping in, a long Sunday brunch, some outdoor time...

The Stacking Componibili


Compact in size, and made of plastic, the cylindrical "Componibili" Kartell unit is a stylish option for adding storage in a small bathroom. Although it was designed over forty years ago, it looks just as beautifully modern today as it did back then. Perfect for hiding unattractive grooming supplies, feminine products, extra toilet paper, and other items that might otherwise visually clutter the space.
