When it comes to creating a beautifully organized home you love, sometimes a fresh coat of paint is just what you need to breathe new life into your space.
I'd like to introduce you to color expert and local badass mama Becki Burke of Becki Burke Creative! I asked to put together her list of must-have colors for your home to bring energy, peace and sophistication to your newly organized space!
Without fail, the kitchen drawer with all the “miscellaneous gadgets” is a breeding ground for chaos.
I’m imagining pizza cutters, avocado slicers, garlic presses and a graveyard of Pampered Chef impulse buys that seemed like a good idea at the time.
It’s not your fault -- how is anyone supposed to make so many oblong pieces of plastic and metal live in harmony in one measly drawer?
Not to worry, we can turn this drawer around with some quick thinking and a hard dose of reality. Take this challenge and you’ll find serious joy from a drawer that opens and closes without something getting stuck (#adulting!).
Ever find yourself thinking you must be running a coffee shop with all the coffee mugs you own? Have 3 different coffee makers, just in case, finding it hard to make a decision on letting one go?
Well you’re not alone!
Drinking coffee is such an important part of most of our days (caffeine please!) and with that comes lots of stuff! And I totally get it, it’s hard to let go of that broken coffee mug with your child’s face on it, or that 8-cup coffee maker that your mother-in-law insists on using when she stays with you.
It’s not about getting rid of everything, it’s about being realistic about what your coffee-drinking needs are so you can reclaim some of that prime real estate for other things, and keep your home organized!
Welcome to the very first of my Interview Series with some amazing female experts around Charleston, discussing unique and holistic approaches to living a happy, healthy and low-stress lifestyle!
Today I'm excited to share my recent interview with certified nutrition and wellness consultant Madison Khanna of Appetit Nutrition…
I have a lot of friends who are moms. I’m not personally a mom quite yet, but I can see how tough it is for them to even get 5 minutes to themselves. My friends know the bathroom is often the only room in the house they have a chance to be alone (although even that isn’t always possible :-/
Let’s face it. Moving and unpacking a new house is about as fun as walking the dog in the rain.
Of course, it always starts out like a scene out of HGTV…
House hunting. Visions of starting fresh in a new home. The excitement, the possibilities.
But then reality hits.
I remember when I was a kid, I would ride my bike around in our neighborhood looking for an open garage. It meant my friends were home, and I could come play.
One of our Lead Organizing Stylists recently moved from a two-bedroom apartment to a five-bedroom house, after months of house hunting. As happens pretty frequently, she and her husband ended up choosing the home with the biggest kitchen since two of her top priorities were having a properly-sized pantry and enough counter space to prepare dinner for the whole family (and guests!).
The tornado warning on my phone was wailing, as my husband and I rushed to prepare a space in the closet. We were hunkered down for Hurricane Irma and preparing for the worst. Right at that moment, I realized I needed to protect our most important paperwork, but unfortunately, it wasn’t all in one place. Around and around the house I went, grabbing all the essential paperwork.
