10 Favorite Rooms with Stylish Storage

Studio McGee entry with baskets for storage and organization

 

One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is the more is more approach.

Decorations everywhere, lights on every surface, the tree filling what was once a blank space.

But one of our favorite things about the New Year is putting it all away, clearing all the clutter to begin a streamlined new year with only what we need.

If you’re already looking ahead to the new year, you’ll absolutely love the stylish storage in these gorgeous rooms designed by Studio McGee.

 

 

From pretty storage jars and beautiful built-ins,

To kid-friendly bookcases and containers,

To baskets of all shapes and sizes, there’s the perfect storage solution for every space.

After almost fifteen months of being out of our house from Hurricane Florence, words can’t express how relieved we are to just be home. But, needless to say, after six moves and four rental houses, our stuff is everywhere. If there was ever a year for organization, this is it! As we focus on finally beginning our addition and reconfiguration of our upstairs in January, let’s just say that closet space, the laundry room and an organized office and mudroom are top priorities!

In the meantime, we’ll be making the most of what we have with these helpful tips from one of our most favorite design studios–and reveling in the glitter, the tinsel and the tissue paper everywhere. After all, it only comes one time a year…

Holiday Shopping with Serena & Lily

holiday shopping with Serena & Lily round table in entry

 

Are you ready to get started on your Black Friday shopping–a little early? We know we are! 

 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily entry with round table and round chandelier

 

We love picking out the perfect gifts for the people we love–especially when they’re holiday decor gifts–and with Serena & Lily’s 25% off sale we’ll be shopping while the turkey cooks. (Although we’re thinking the shopping will take significantly less time.)

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily living room with sectional sofa

 

 
Throws and trays always top our list of great gifts for those friends that are just impossible to buy for, and when it comes to the intersection of quality, style and uniqueness, these are some of our very favorite. 


 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily chaises lounge in living room

 

We have filled our homes with Serena & Lily throw pillows and love the comfort and the incredible quality. Fluffy, full inserts (Go a size bigger than the pillow for that extra fluff!) and darling details add that little something extra that we’re always looking for.

 


 

 

Kitchen stools with Serena & Lily
Riviera Stools

 

We have these Riviera Stools, but, if we didn’t, rest assured, they would be on our wishlist! They completely changed the look of our kitchen and are comfortable to sit in to boot!

 


 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily bedroom with custom headboard

 

Chic new bedding and gorgeous, luxurious rugs are perfect for giving your home that special holiday spruce,


 

 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily bedroom with gallery wall and bench at foot of bed

 

Just like we did in our guest room, pictured here, last year! Serena & Lily bedding is nothing short of luxurious–and this bench is a forever favorite!

 


 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily nursery

 

No one does gifts for the nursery better than Serena & Lily.

 


 

hanging swing in playroom

 

And, we have to say, we couldn’t love this swing (And pillows! And basket! And floor pillow! And throw!) any more in our playroom. A hanging swing made a difficult-to-decorate attic slant easy and whimsical, perfect for kids and adults alike. Baskets make great favorite, functional gifts for friends, especially if getting organized this year is on the top of their New Year’s Resolution list. 

 


 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily playroom with chaise lounge and bamboo shades

 

Speaking of whimsy… This chaise room/kids’ art space off our kitchen got the perfect finishing touch from a beautiful pair of throws. They’re so cozy to reach for on chilly days and pretty all the time. The details are truly exceptional. 

 


 

bathroom with bamboo shades and bamboo stool from Serena & Lily

 

A cute hamper and a darling teak step-stool added the right amount of pizazz to our kids’ bathroom–and that perfect amount of coastal feel in a home by the shore. We love a little bit of a beachy feel no matter where we are. And Serena & Lily, clearly one of our favorite partners in design, does it better than all the rest. 

 


 

Right now, stock up on essentials for you and make short work of your shopping list with 25% off at Serena & Lily. Santa only wishes he had it this easy!

Offer Exclusions: Gift Certificates, Art, items in the Sale section of site, and the Limited-Edition PUBLICC7 Bike.
