Look at this office/desk area. Doesn't it just look so calming and fresh and clean? Minimalist looks so inviting to me right now.
This craft closet is a mecca of craft closet and organization. Now we all may not have a
craft closet persay, but we can take some tips from this. Plastic bins and storage drawers. They are a cheap and functional organizational tool. I just picked up a bunch from target and use them for everything from toys and kids school papers to winter gear and paper goods.
If going for storage boxes, picking one color to use makes everything much more cohesive and pleasing to the eye, thus a cleaner looking space. (rather than using a bunch of different styles and colors of boxes).
I also LOVE baskets. I love a good natural woven/straw basket. The great thing is you stick toys, magazines, blankets, papers…..anything and it is hidden. You can put it next to a chair, under a console, on a bookshelf, and the clutter is easily concealed. Target has a bunch of great wicker baskets and so does Homegoods.
I also love acrylic drawer inserts for junk drawers and makeup. These are from the Container Store.
