Whenever possible, I like to merge form + function in order to create both organized and stylish spaces. Here are three easy styling tips I use on almost every project:
One: Use concealed storage to avoid over-stimulating the eye. Example: I love tucking away hair brushes, clips and ponytail holders in this adorable canvas bin by Petit Pehr.
Two: Use uniform containers. Find a container (bin, box or basket) that you like and use the same style and color in a row for a clean, streamlined look. Likewise, I always use uniform hangers when organizing a closet, uniform cups, plates and bowls in a kitchen and matching food storage containers in a pantry.
Three: Elevate everyday essentials. Everyone needs household essentials like diaper caddies and laundry bins. Why not pick the prettiest ones to furnish your home with? I love using these canvas bins as a portable diaper stations stocked with wipes, diapers and diaper cream and these oversized bins make adorable laundry bins or dress-up bins for a kid’s room. Also, loving these stylish high chairs with splash mats from Gathre.
It doesn’t take much to step up your interior style – Try experimenting with concealed storage options, uniform containers and elevating your everyday essentials.
