It’s a proven formula: Having a place for everything = order + sanity. That’s why everyone has plans/hopes/dreams of someday getting organized. We certainly do, and we’re devoting this week to storage answers for every room in the house.
- LA interior designer Michaela Scherrer had niches built into strategic spots in her Pasadena house, including the entry shown here. But she says the real secret to her orderly look is sticking to a pale palette all over: “If you have different colors and things are in disarray, it’s obvious. If you have one color and things are in disarray, it looks artistic.” Tour her house in the Remodelista book.
- Planning a remodel? Now is your opportunity to bring strategically planned storage into your life. In today’s 10 Favorites roundup, Christine zeroes in on architect-designed built-in shelves, headboards, and other solutions in the bedroom. (And did you see last week’s 10 Favorites: Bathtubs in the Bedroom?)
- Gone are the days of the root cellar, but this hanging basket is an ideal compact stand in. In our weekly Tuesday Object Lesson, Megan Wilson writes about the enduring appeal of Shaker solutions and details where to source them.
- In Wednesday’s Remodel & Renovation post, Meredith presents an organizer’s dream: a 190-square-foot artist’s studio with color-coded drawers and shelves so that every book and brush has its place–and there’s even a pullout bed for naps.
- Wishing you had more closets? The armoire is making a comeback in a new, clean-lined guise. See our favorites in 10 Easy Pieces.
