AROUND THE HOUSE

Pairing colors for a new product I'm working on // My new favorite planner and pen
Coach and Rory's usual perch // New turquoise tray on my bedside table
Pillows galore // Tidying my closet and realizing just how much blue I really own

I think most people who read my blog would be surprised at how messy I am in real life. While I'm drawn to organized office spaces, my own is absolutely out of control, especially with new inventory for the holidays arriving each day. Maybe I'll start a new organizing feature here on the blog? In the mean time, do tell me: Are you messy or tidy? What are the most and least organized spaces in your home? Where could you use the most help?

I like to think I'm organized but I feel like I have piles of papers everywhere these days. In general, I like things simple, organized and clean and then when I paint, I like to make a big ol' mess.

Can't wait to see what project you're working on...

I'm with you- organized in my head, but you wouldn't know it from looking at my desk. XO

It depends on how stressful my week is. Crazy week - crazy mess. Leisurely week - super organization.

typically I am pretty organized because if I'm not I'll go crazy. For me, organization = sanity. The one area I need to work on is art supplies. It's everywhere in my house!

with a 5 year old and a hubby that hoards all paper -- i gave up on being organized and in control :) LOL

I struggle with timing. I'll go on an organizing/cleaning binge and my house looks pristine, and then I work late three days in a row and it looks like a tornado went through the place. If I can stay on top of it, it stays pretty neat. The one area that really needs an update that I haven't gotten around to yet is my hall closet. Holy Moses, it's frightening.

Ha! Funny you should menion that! I am in the process of cleaning out all of my closets ;)

Messy would be an understatement. A bomb went off. A new one goes off like hourly.

Organized at times, but let it get so messy until I have no choice. Loving the tray. Happy Wednesday!

i'd love to be organized, especially in my closet situation, but i always find that i'm lacking space (i know that's no excuse). i lamented on the lack of closet space in the houses we're looking at during our house hunt in my monday musings! check it out! http://thesecondbestareveryexpensive.blogspot.com/2012/10/monday-musings.html

I'm actually pretty messy... the tidiest part of our apartment is probably the kitchen, but the messiest is the bedroom.

I can't function without organization! Keeping things clean keeps me sane :)

Jennifer (the Elizabeth Letter) said...

I am superficially neat- but anything behind closed doors or in a drawer is a hot mess!

Lydia Nguyen said...

I try to be very neat, but when in the middle of a project, that can be tough. I keep a few drawers empty so I can throw everything in there in a pinch(shh!). Eventually I will clean them out again.

Nat said...

I am crazy clean in the common areas of my house ie. kitchen, living room, etc but I let my bedroom get so, so messy! I also let my desk get messy during the day but I must clean it up every night before I leave in order to feel calm

Organization is great, I try and sometimes fail. Oh, beautiful puppies!!

Sadie + Stella said...
