"Oops, I did it again!"
No, this is not a tribute to Brittney Spears. It's me confessing to you that I've started yet another challenge.
It's called the One Room Challenge (ORC). Twice a year 20 pre-selected interior bloggers choose one room for a total makeover. They are given 6 weeks to complete the entire project. During this 6-week period, we follow as they show us their room transformations. Additionally, all blogger guest participants - that's where I fit in - follow along and document their own progress in a blog post. Each Thursday, we all link to one main page, which will be viewed by many observers, top name designers, and home & garden industry influencers.
Welcome to the 14th and final week of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge! We have made it to the end. Can you believe it? Woot, woot!!!
My aim was to organize every room in my home in 14 weeks or less. In a separate post I'll recap for you how I did overall.
But for now, let's head outdoors where I've started to #spring clean my tiny, and rather hideous front porch.
Welcome to Week 12 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is to organize every room in my home in 14 weeks or less.
There are only two more weeks to go in this challenge so let's make it count. Today we're organizing the laundry room. This post will be especially challenging for me. Why? Well, because I don't actually have a laundry room. Keep reading as I explain
We're still in Week 11 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is to organize every room in my home in 14 weeks or less.
If you were sitting in front of a computer while reading my home office organization post thinking:
Welcome to Week 11 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is to organize every room of my home in 14 weeks or less.
Can you believe how far we've come? The changes that have taken place around my home - and hopefully yours as well - are just mind-blowing! I'm used to decorating and organizing for others. But it's been so nice to be able to focus on my own home for a change.
Having said that, it's time to give attention to an area in the home that can quickly become a paper pit. Today, we're organizing our office.
Today starts Week 10 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is to organize my entire home in 14 weeks or less. But today we're taking a bit of a detour. Let me explain.
Having a space that is uniquely dedicated for guest stays is rare for small space dwellers. Most of our "guest" rooms are usually a combination of an office, sitting, workout, craft, dressing, or even a baby's room. I'll be sure to cover combination spaces in a later post.
However, recently I had the privilege of organizing a tiny "proper" guest room for a family home. Keep reading as I tell you all about it...
Now that we've had a quick break it's time to jump back into the saddle with Week 9 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is to organize my entire home in 14 weeks or less.
If you have a small foyer- or worse- no foyer at all, this project could either be really simple, or completely paralyzing. Today, I'll show you how to create an organized, functional entryway from virtually nothing. Here goes...
Instead of starting off Week 9 of the WHO Challenge with another project, I thought I'd check in to see how things are going. Are you having a difficult time trying to decide how to organize spaces in your home?
The first trick to overcoming this hurdle is to analyze how you operate. Knowing your organization style means understanding your preferences for Finding, Assessing, Retrieving and Returning items - quickly (good organization will take you F.A.R.R.)
For the sake of simplicity, I've broken down organizational styles into two basic categories: those who pile, and those who file. So... Are you a "piler" or a "filer"? Keep reading to find out.
We're still in Week 8 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is to organize my entire home in 14 weeks or less.
Subscribers to the "boutique" (aka: this blog) already received a sneak peak of today's project. Next week, they'll receive a condensed email with links to ALL the items mentioned in this post. If you have not yet subscribed please click here to do so.
This weekend we're focusing on what is probably tiniest, darkest "room" in the home. It's where we toss things we don't know what to with; or where we hide random things in a hurry company comes. For many, organizing their closet is the most dreaded of all household tasks. Let me show you step by step how to conquer this fear.
Welcome to Week 8 of the Whole House Organization Challenge, where my aim is to organize my whole house in 14 weeks or less. Today, we’re focusing on our baubles, our adornments, our body bling – in other words, our accessories.
Doesn't it seem that the smaller the item, the more difficult it is to manage? Accessories are no exception. Store them incorrectly and they can quickly become entangled, damaged or lost. So how can you get - and keep- your accessories in order? Keep reading as I share my tips.
We're still in Week 7 of the Whole House Organization Challenge, where my aim is to organize every room of my home in 14 weeks or less.
The one thing that is ALWAYS an issue in a small space is finding a place to put everything. Recently we decluttered, deep cleaned and organized our linen closets, and bedroom surfaces and drawers. But there was one thing we never discussed: Where and how to store the bed linens? If you're struggling with this problem, keep reading
