For years IKEA's EXPEDIT has been a ubiquitous storage solution for homes everywhere. But recently the Swedish furnishing giant's VITTSJÖ has been showing up more and more on my design radar.

A place for everything and everything in its place. Your mantra, or your aspiration? Either way, I love each and every one of these storage options for kids' rooms. The light warm wood with icy spots of color on each is lovely, but not too serious. (The silly faces on those storage boxes don't hurt either.)
A clean, organized, and well-lit home work space is a must. And what better time to tackle this issue in your home than the fresh start of a new year! Many of us don't have the luxury of a separate home office or studio, but that doesn't mean we can't create a healthy environment for working at home. Even if you don't work from home, carving out a space for productivity is important and a smart way focus on specific tasks without distraction.
