Closet Organization Finds & Inspiration to Bring Order

Closet Organization Finds & Inspiration to Bring Order shifts us (yes us…girrrrrl, I need encouragement since I am tempted to: play the piano, watch Fixer Upper re-runs and do annnnnnything else but organize!) energized to clean, organize, and declutter. A fresh year is an ideal time to let go of items we’re not using and also get a handle on storage and any chaos.

Closet Organization Finds & Inspiration to Bring Order

Add a Dresser to the Closet

As you can see in my closet, a vintage dresser found on Craigslist and painted grey, provides drawers and helps the walk-in feel more special.

On Being No Superwoman

What’s different about my approach to winter decluttering and ongoing organization is that I have reached an age where I can no longer save the world in a day.

Annie Dillard inspirational quote on Hello Lovely Studio.

Nope. Illness and assorted struggles have taught me perseverance and the beauty of working in bursts.

Annie Dillad inspirational quote on Hello Lovely Studio.

Because, guess what? I’m living proof housework and home organization can get done even when you can only tackle it one baby step at a time.

I love my industrial racks I designed for my husband to make from industrial pipe and salvaged wood.

Our home is soooo far from perfect – it’s not cluttery, but it definitely has a lived in look that is often evolving.

It is no coincidence that ideas for mindfulness, peace and serenity are frequently addressed here. It takes intention to create and maintain balance.

Wisdom for Letting Go

Whether we’re talking about clinging to the material or immaterial, so much of life is about choosing what stays and goes.

Come take a tour of our peaceful, white, serene, European country inspired home. I'm talking tidying up and letting go today on Hello Lovely Studio. #hellolovelystudio #hometour #nordicfrench #europeancountry

While there was a time in my life when this closet from a real estate listing (below) appealed, now I aspire to pare down so that I don’t require such a space.

    agree….tidiness in your home brings tidiness in yourself. would not be able to live in a mess.

    I love a clutter free, clean home, so letting go of things has never been a problem for me. I don’t get sentimental about ‘things’, only people. I love to see towels, all the same colour (white), lined up neatly in my linen closet. Clothes all hung on the same hangers (white in mine & dark wood in coat closet), shoes lined up on shelves, socks folded and sorted by colours… I find holding something in my hand and asking myself, “Would I buy this today?” helps me put many a piece aside for donation. Tackling a closet, or drawer a day, makes it less of a chore. Start small, Michele. It won’t take much time out of your day, nor exhaust you, and the satisfaction you feel once complete will spark Joy, as Marie Kondo is fond of saying. Happy Decluttering!

    Wow, so many great ideas! I’m down to going thru the last few boxes in our garage left over from mini storage while we were building! It’s been a process. So this is a timely post for me as I’m sorting thru what I’m keeping and needing to get it organized. Love all the closet ideas too!
