Once you know the style you are going for, the rest is fairly easy – the shopping, measurements, placement, and so on . . . Sometimes you have more than one style that you love, that’s okay I like to incorporate the styles by color, texture or pattern something that will make the eye flow through the room – not keeping making pit stops.
An organized home doesn’t have to mean white plastic boxes with generic printed labels. Nor does it mean getting rid of ALL YOUR STUFF!
But, unlike other organizing businesses that just focus on declutter. I aim to help my clients find order while interlacing some major style, at times I have had Redesign 101 lessons from my clients . . . I love that kind of connection of learning from each other.
There is a plethora of sharing at CCHC of useful tips and insider shopping resources to streamline your home-style with objects that serve function so you aren’t spending, oh let’s say, 20 minutes every effing morning looking for your keys or glasses! Instead, you’re admiring the objects you do own and using them in a purposeful way.
What I’m trying to say is make room in your life for what you love, and have space to take it in and enjoy it. I’ll give you an example, I love using trays (everywhere) trays give order, they collect small items and give them a home, a grounding place. The dish scrub, dish brush, and dish soap, along with a small vase of fresh flowers — placed on a tray, you suddenly have a small still-life. I always find a home for my trays while using them as a artistic focus of a space at times.
There are so many organizing products available everywhere. It can be confusing and overwhelming. It’s about size, proportion, color, or should I go clear and so many more choices. In addition you probably have a lot of organizing products at your home that you can reuse like baskets, bins or totes (Please none from the 1980s). I put together a slide show of attractive, functional organizing products to share from two popular and favorite companies.
I get some great ideas from Denise – recreate it – Make it my own!
I’m not here to reinvent the wheel . . . Just repurpose it! ~ Me
I like how Denise takes basic products from say the Dollar store or Walmart and turns them into Luxury! We all can do this, I challenge you to find a simple product from the Dollar General, or Walmart, or Target, or wherever you shop – take a picture of it – then, turn it into a creation of Luxurious Charm and Beauty – post the finalize product. Then, pay it forward – give it to someone that would greatly appreciate some real Beauty in their life this Holiday Season.
Enjoy . . . Her DIYs are very simple – can be done in an afternoon.

Then, you are a Arts & Crafter . . . nothing to be ashamed of, unless you do not have a project calendar to plan out how you will finish your art – tist creations!
I struggle too with my ADHD when I’m on sites such as Pinterest, Ikea and Martha Stewart. I get lost in collecting all the projects – that I must admit, I will never in my lifetime have the time to complete all the projects I have collected. But, I do want to finish a lot of them so I have created a Project Calendar.
(TIP: I set a timer when I am on sites such as Pinterest – it helps not to waste time)
I pick one or two projects every month – depending on the project. I put it on my calendar, I create my shopping list (if needed), I gather all my supplies and concentrate on that one or two projects for the month. Currently, I am planning out my projects so that I can I have the ones that are for Christmas gifts completed by December 15th.
Plan out your projects – remember Slow & Steady wins the race.
