Art of Design: Organizing Your Home

Joseph Pubillones on

- Fabric or leather covered boxes organize remote controls, and look great stacked on tables, in shelfs or on consoles.

- Edit the number of lamps in your living room. Place dimmers on all lamps...everyone looks better in soft light!

- Make sure your dining chairs are evenly spaced and placed around the table. A slight tilt of any chair throws your room into complete chaos and makes for a messy presentation.

- Be creative with that new piece of art bought on impulse. If your walls are full, placed your item at a slight angle on a chair. Believe me this ad-hoc easel will make your work stand out of the crowd.

- The best kind of nightstands are those tiered with shelves or drawers to help you organize your bedside.

- Add shelving to a small bathroom window and more storage for toiletries. Unused space over doorways and entrances can be used for storage of luggage or boots.

- While you are at it purge any unwanted items. It feels good to give so send some loot to your local charity or thrift shop.

These may seem like simple ideas, but they are tried and true. The more you organize your rooms, the better your interior design will appear. Simple living is something that takes work. Once you get into the habit of sporadically organizing your spaces, your house will always feel like a great place to come home to.
