I love it when a room is both organized and stylish! A house can be the most perfect looking house from outside, but decorating means nothing when you can't find your car keys or the kids' backpack.
If I use an item daily, I normally leave it out or keep it somewhere within easy reach. However, just because an item is a necessity doesn't mean it can't be cute and stylish!
My favorite thing to view in all my home magazines and idea circulars is to see everyday items made functional and lovely. Look how these keys became a focal point with just a little creative organization. Love that!
If something is interesting or pleasing to the eye, who says we can't leave it out on display? I love the green color of this Kitchen Aid mixer. Why not leave it out every day?
Those of us living in small spaces know firsthand how important storage, organization and functionality are. When considering organization versus style, try weeding out those items that are not necessarily used more than twice a week. These items don't need to be left on display unless you love the way it looks.
I love everyday objects made beautiful. I'm a sucker for beautiful soap arrangements, luxurious towels artfully folded and toiletries left on display.
