Next week we will be rolling out 2010′s Organization Blog Fest! Hooray! I’ve never organized one of these things before and I am really disorganized, so keep your fingers crossed for me! It’s been a lot of fun to correspond with those in the blogosphere who are much more organized than I am!
In addition to inviting some of our favorite bloggers from around the web, I’ve also asked everyone here at Design Public to share their favorite Organizational Tips/Products/Gadgets/Whatever Keeps Their Acts Together with you. As a teaser to our event next week, here is a post from Ali, our superwoman of many tasks, who is officially known as our Vendor Liason. She’s been so busy that unfortunately, we haven’t seen her on the blog a lot lately, but I’m glad to say she’s got a post for us today!
ALI’S TIP: PLAIN, CLEAN AND SIMPLE WHITE :
I might be cheating a little with my organization tip since my photo is of our dinnerware and normally dinnerware automatically looks organized because it stacks in neat little piles, but I have a point…I think…
Nearly every item in my space is on display because we have very little closed storage. When we moved in to our loft we noticed the open shelving above the sink and made a pact (complete with the act of spitting in our hands and a solid handshake): “We are only going to buy white dishware and get rid of anything that isn’t completely white.” I’m not a big fan of matchy matchy anything but when it comes to items in white I’ll take as much as I can get. The end result has been one of my favorite portions of our space. Even though our shelving may not be completely “organized” it looks clean and neat simply because it isn’t super cluttered. We do have a few items in hues we particularly enjoy just to add a splash of color, which I love. Actually, now that I think about it, we’ve applied our “Plain, Clean, and Simple!” pact to our sheets and towels as well which makes the organization of our closets clean looking without really trying and it has drastically kept our clutter buying to a minimum.
