I hate clutter. And I hate ugly. I’m a very visual person with a great attention to detail, which means every single thing I see in a day affects me.
When I moved into my last apartment, it was quite challenging to fit everything perfectly (as it always is when you’re dealing with a Manhattan apartment). After about a day and a half of desperately trying to make “organization magic,” my good-intentioned dad said, “Don’t worry about how it looks, no one will see it.” Given my passion and zest for life, and loudly (and immediately) responded, “I will!!!! I WILL SEE IT! I have eyes!!!!!”
Since I have eyes, and very good ones at that, I’m constantly on a mission to be as chicly organized as possible. Here are my super-helpful findings for the bedroom:
- Dresser Drawers: I use Bread Pans to keep my “under bottoms” and my slips organized because they are sleek-looking and the have a smooth surface that won’t pill fabric.
- Bed Table Drawers: I don’t like reaching in the top drawer of my nightstand and not being able to find things like my lip treatment or eye drops, so I use these beautiful Crystal Snack Dishes to keep everything in its place.
- Makeup Stand: I have a whole crystal network setup to make my makeup stand chic and easy. Use my video, A Makeup Stand for a Princess, to set up your network.
- Decor: Our bedroom is where we start our day and end our day. It must be beautiful and it must match our personal aesthetic. This is a very important place to spend some dinero. Make sure you love your bedding (I found mine at Kohl’s), lamps (Overstock.com has a great assortment), and any other items you choose to allow in your room (I like clean lines, so I just have a few chic-looking fashion books, glass coasters, and fresh flowers).
If our home is chaotic, our life will be chaotic. It’s definitely worth putting time into getting ourselves chicly organized.
