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. 

 

Studio McGee Pantry with baskets and jars for storage and organization

 

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…

Things We Love: The Beauty of a Basket

Shelley Johnstone

 

If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of, it’s stylish storage space. From stashing papers to stowing dirty laundry to concealing toys,  baskets are double-duty players when it comes to hiding your junk and displaying your good taste. They’re easy on the earth, easy on your wallet and go with every decor in any room. From the bathroom to the kitchen, there’s a place for natural fiber baskets in every space. Check out these beautiful ways to incorporate baskets into your design.

Things We Love: Butler’s Pantries

D. Stanley Dixon via Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles

We won’t lie: We wouldn’t mind having Jeeves hanging around to answer the door and prepare a little cheese and wine for company at a moment’s notice. (Or the perfect martini.) But, alas, this seems unlikely. But you don’t have to have a butler to have a fabulous butler’s pantry. Great for storing entertaining items like wine glasses and all those trays, this is one additional room we could really use! Check out some of our favorite, fabulous butler’s pantries.
