Afraid Of Color?

by Gillian

In theory, you like the idea of a room with color. In reality, you’re not sure. So how can you get the wow factor without the regret? Paint the back of your bookcase. Pick a bright color since you want it to really pop. Don’t worry, most of the color will be obscured by books, tchotchkes and pictures.

Cool Storage Solutions

by Gillian

I will admit that I am bit OCD when it comes to organizing especially when we’re talking about my children’s toys, books and clothes. As a busy mom of two small girls time management is crucial to getting out the door each day and I have found that having their belongings in a neat and organized manner helps to make the routine go more smoothly.  So it’s no surprise why I fell in love with the Campaign Storage collection from Serena and Lily. I love their neutral bins with a hint of accent color which fit perfectly into the cubby, the coordinating fabric on the built-in seat, and their metal everything storage bins in playful patterns.
