Organization makes people happy. It’s proven! We’re serious—there are actually health benefits to being organized. Feast your eyes on this clutter-free, pretty & practical organization inspo (and tips of the trade).

 

Bookshelves:

These can either be a cluttery eyesore or completely make a space.

Tips:

  1. Color grouping: Try grouping books of similar shades together. You don’t need to go overboard here, group colors that complement each other or belong in the same color family.
  2. Bins & boxes: For storage, use some cute bins or boxes. We love this Agate Glass Box Set for cleanly displaying some of your pretties!
  3. Keep it simple: We’re getting organized, remember? Avoid placing too many knick-knacks or supplies throughout your shelving. That’s what the bins are for!

Trays:

Trays are great for organizing the things you have to have in an area, while still keeping the space neat and polished.

Tips:

  1. In the coffee table tray you can store the remotes, candle, coasters, etc. Have a lot on your coffee table? Use a few!
    2. In the bathroom, trays are great for perfumes, soaps, and extra toiletries.
    3. By the door, place your keys in a tray and they’ll always have a home!
    4. On your nightstand: books, lamp, candle--voila!

Bar Carts:
They're everywhere. Bar carts are the perfect way to store and display all your spirits and glasses.

Tips:

  1. Mix it up. Add some greenery, some of your favorite knick-knacks, cocktail napkins, etc.
  2. Have a plan. Maybe use trays to divide your cart into zones, so you have a place for the essentials,: glassware, bottles, etc. Organization, meet style.

    Desks:

Who wants to work in a cluttered space? No one.

Tips:

  1. Make sure your work area is well lit! You’ll get more done, and your eyes will thank you. Check out our lamps here.
  2. Hang up some inspiration boards. This way you can organize all those samples, articles, photos, etc. you’ve been hanging onto, and they can provide a fun backdrop to your work-space.
  3. Storage containers are your friend. File away all the paperwork that always ends up piled on your desk. Bonus—you’ll know where everything is!
