Close-up: Melissa and Matt's "Embarassment"

Close-up: Melissa and Matt's "Embarassment"

We spent a little time last night browsing our previous House Tours for some general inspiration. What was really on the brain was a combination of the always central "looking-for-great-style/design" as well as ideas on how things are stored (and by default, we hope, kept neat and clean).

We were surprised to read again Melissa's response to her Biggest Embarassment (from Melissa and Matt's house tour): "By far our sad, sad bathroom. There's no space, no storage and it's just a nightmare. We mostly keep that door closed."

When we went through the slideshow for the umpteenth time, it finally hit us what a contradiction this seemed! Okay, so we can't see the whole room, but we remember loving this photo the first time around (and guessing that they were in design and organization heaven in that bathroom).

Melissa and Matt's product list for the bathroom:

Medicine Cabinet: IKEA (we love it!!)
Octopus Hanger: IKEA (a standard great)
Clock: Unica Home (sweet touch)

So, after all of this, we're wondering what you use to fix, ammend, or conceal your embarassments. What are some of your "Best Products" or ideas for concealing, storing, taking the attention away from problems, etc.??
