I will admit it: my shoes are all roaming free on the floor of my closet. While I happen to have just tidied them in my new-year bout of cleaning, they typically end up in a dreadful pile. Next on my list of storage solutions to tackle is finding a better solution for my shoes. Here are some of my favorite options!
I have a thing for maps, especially city maps. I love the way that admiring a map instantly reminds you of the myriad of reasons you love the city you live in. It can also quickly take you back to an incredible journey you took long ago, or catapult you forward in a longing reverie of a far-away place yet to be visited.
The entryway is a great candidate for a new year spruce up. As the first space to be seen when walking into a house, the entryway sets a tone for the rest of the house. Unfortunately, It's a place where shoes, clothes, packages, and mail tend to build up. But some planning, a weekend's worth of time, and about $85 can fix all of that.
Designed right, an entryway can help you clear clutter (think coats, mail, and keys that have a tendency to walk away). Designed with a bit of creative DIY, an entryway can also help welcome guests with a great, big style hug.
When drink tubs aren't busy livening up your party, they can organize and declutter your home during their off-time.

I love modern art. Unfortunately, the price tag that often comes with it moves these lovely pieces from the "Must Have" category to the one entitled "Will Admire Forever From Afar." I was thrilled to come across Erin Ashley's gorgeous works for sale in her Etsy shop recently.
When I was little and my parents planned and built our house, I was pretty sure my mom coined the term mudroom. (After all, they called one of our rooms a "frog"). Of course it turns out the idea and name predate her, but my thinking back then was that she came up with it in response to my brother's and my messiness; thanks to our rural location the name was pretty accurate.
Sammy recently discovered the joys of Rub-n-Buff, a metallic wax she has been using to add a little glam to a series of projects around her house. In addition to several lovely furniture makeovers, Sammy used gold Rub-n-Buff to transform the look of her previously bland entryway.
