One thing I have learned over multiple moves and setting up homes, is that the key to organisation is to group like things together. For example, need a paper clip? All clips are stored in the top drawer of the MALM chest in the study.
While it is near impossible to gather and house all bobby pins in one general area (ask any girl)… but you get the gist.
I have also come to love trays as an organisational tool. Being both decorative and practical, I’ve been on a witch hunt for beautiful pieces to add to my humble collection. I’m eyeing these trays in mirrored metallics, monogrammed, clear acrylic, marble and especially LOVE the Kaleido collection. For the DIY-savvy, Centsational Girl’s stenciled tray is stunning.
