Creating solutions for small spaces has been one of my expertise since most of the houses I organize for our clients are in Baltimore City. This weekend makeover of a small bedroom for boys. This setup can easily be recreated in a dorm room or any other small space when you need to make the most of the area available.
Getting the kids ready for their first semester in college sounds like a daunting task when you don’t know where to start or are not a very organized person. An organized space is essential in every phase of our lives, especially for small-space living, like a dorm room.
Many people believe that making the bed every morning seems like a waste of time, so what is the point of arranging all those blankets, sheets, and pillows? The actual benefit of making the bed every morning goes beyond just making the room look neater and cleaner, and it is not just for neat freaks and homemakers.
Our kids inevitably grow, and their rooms should grow and evolve with them. Updating, styling, and organizing their rooms shouldn’t be a daunting task. With a clear vision of the space, a plan in hand, and motivation, you can do it yourself. That is exactly what I am doing to update my little girl’s bedroom, and I will be sharing the six steps I use for a styled and organized bedroom.
I am so excited about the possibility of a family gathering again. We usually don’t have big parties in our house in a “normal situation,” but we have always loved to have our family over for dinners. Now I ask, are we ready for this next step coming out of a pandemic? Many people might still be concerned about big gatherings indoors, but the outdoors might still be the solution for us this Summer.
Have you ever wondered where we find those amazing, good-looking products to organize any space of the home? Some are from IKEA; others are from The Container Store or other stores. However, we also get many of our supplies from Amazon.
We created the best house plants for rowhouses list after our clients asked us for our recommendations since we love incorporating them in our plans.
I am excited to celebrate Easter this year since last year was such a trouble and uncertain time for us all. Even though we might not have a big gathering with the extended family, I am looking forward to making Easter feel special again, as it should.
The medicine cabinet or box are areas that many people forget to declutter and check items for expiration dates. Let’s make an effort to tackle this area once or twice a year?
Many times my kids don’t know what to do with their time. They get bored; they get into arguments with each other for fun or don’t do what they should be doing, etc. I realized that most of their boredom (and my frustration with them) is because they don’t know what is coming next. They don’t have a clear vision of the expectations we have for them. That is why I created a to-do checklist for them.
