collection / organize:

August 29, 2012

I feel like when I was a little kid, I was a fairly organized person. I had a spot for everything in my room. I even had a nail polish chart with that I made of my nail polish collection. Times were so simple when we were kids and our stuff was contained to a room. Now that I'm older, I have certainly accumulated a lot more stuff. and now that we have a house, I'm afraid I will accumulate even more since it is a lot more space to fill. (We haven't moved in yet if anyone is wondering) Anyway. In a perfect world, my future home would be organized like all these lovely pictures gathered here. After seeing so many beautifully organized spaces, I am going to definitely try to get more organized! Are you an organized person? Or a messy person? Do you have a picture perfect home? Or do you accumulate little piles of clutter like I do? If you're an organized person, I'd love to hear some tips on your secrets! ;)

15 hello's:

  1. I love the first one, so colorful. Wish i could me organised enough to create something like that instead of just swooning over them! Great selection

  2. I'm an aspiring organised person, but I've always struggled with it. I feel like I've improved a tiny bit since I moved in with my boyfriend, but I'm still very far from organised.

  3. I dream of becoming an organized person. I live in "organized chaos" as I call it. LOL. Everything has it's place and I know where it's at. I think it's a matter of not enough space and too much stuff. :-/ Love this collection!

  4. Adorable, Love the colours and sweet organization!

    inspiring and beautiful!

  5. I'm a super organized person, and my husband doesn't like to keep "stuff" so we help each other out! I make sure things have a place, and he makes sure that the stuff we keep, is worthy of keeping. We have a goal to go through our stuff every year to make sure we don't just accumulate piles of crap (for lack of a better word) over the years. My husband always says, "It's just stuff and it's all going to burn one day anyway, we won't be taking it to heaven with us!" The key is to go through things often and throwing away things that aren't worth it.

  6. I'm 50% organized 50% total mess. I do however take a bit of pride in my pantry, I use big glass jars for all my dried goods, it makes it really easy to see when I am low on something. I also try not to use plastic containers since I don't know for sure what is leaching into the food. And I like to keep all my canned goods in total order, all facing the same direction and lined up. Now, my crafting stuff and projects take over every flat surface including the floor. Thankfully my husband doesn't mind!

  7. I'm kind of funny in that some areas of my home are completely organized -- such as where I keep all of my shop related items -- and other areas where things just pile up and need to be cleared off every once-in-a-while -- such as my desk...or the kitchen table.

    Love all of these organizational ideas!

  8. It's funny how organizing can be, haha :) and these pictures are so inspirational! I love them!

  9. I would like to be organized, but unfortunately my appartment is always a mess !
    All photos are wonderful ideas, I'll think about it to find my personal touch, thanks !

  10. These photos are fantastic!!!!

  11. I really enjoyed looking at this collection. I must admit, I'm not the most organized person, but I enjoy seeing people who are. These are great as they are organized, but also visually appealing.

  12. I love it when things are so organized!

  13. ahh this post made me SO happy. Im an organization freak! Especially love hat song of style closet. Aspirational for sure!

  14. How lovely! Your blog is one of my favorites so it was fun to open it up today and see my office in a post. I've always loved your style and the mix of modern with vintage/industrial.It's what I've tried to create in my own home. And if it makes you feel any better it may look organized there but my life is generally chaotic and creatively messy. I'm okay with that...most of the time.

  15. I love organizing, but stuff always seems to disorganize itself again =/
    The best solution is to have less stuff than there's actually room for at home. I'm moving soon, which has been a great opportunity to get rid of a lot of my belongings. It feels really good! Your collection of spaces for this post is lovely. Oh, to have a proper pantry...
