Remodelista: The Organized Home

disclosure: This post contains one or more affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.

A stylish organized home is a cornerstone here at Simplified Bee. When I started my business and blog nearly a decade ago, I found a void between home organizers and interior designers. To bridge the gap and with the mission that homes could be orderly without sacrificing beauty, I set out to combine the disciplines of organization and design. The approach resonated with clients and readers.

Recently I received a copy of a newly released book, Remodelista: The Organized Home by Julie Carlson and Margot Guralnick of Remodelista. Their organizational philosophy is completely in line with my own – love! This beautiful book delivers hundreds of simple and clever tips for creating an orderly, inviting and beautiful home. The Remodelista duo covers every inch of a house – including rooms that get cluttered the most often – the entryway, kitchen, bedroom closet and laundry room.  To help inspire and teach, lists and charts organizational tricks are accompanied by hundred of gorgeous photos. One of my personal favorites is Remodelista’s simple list of daily rituals:

I adore how this book advocates quality over quantity and stylish storage aids such as beautifully designed straw baskets, wall hooks and wooden peg rails. In addition, trays are a personal way I like to coral items and create visual order in kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Loving this kitchen example featured in the book:

A home’s entry is one of the most important spaces to decorate and organize. It’s the place where you will meet & greet guests, take on and off shoes and hang up coats and scarves. And for this, it needs to be both beautiful and functional. This chic modern entry was designed by Lauren Nelson and recently featured in San Francisco Cottages & Gardens.

Stylish Daily Planners 2018

It’s that time of year! School will be starting soon and 2018 will be here before we know it (yikes!). It’s a time when parents and students everywhere are challenged to keep track their new schedules, events and activities. Keeping an organized calendar is an essential part in helping manage your daily activities and prioritize your time. It’s also a great way to kick-off the new school year and the new year the right way. And it’s true… keeping organized helps relieve stress (we can all use a little less stress in our lives!). When kept up-to-date, a planner allows you to find information quickly, prioritize effectively and schedule appointments on the spot. Love this.

Last year I scheduled all of my events, reminders and appointment on my iphone calendar. Although I liked the alarms, I didn’t like that I could see all of the month’s events in one glance. So this year I’ve decided to keep both. It may be overkill, but I still like keeping an old school daily planner. Today, I’m sharing my favorite daily planners for the remainder of 2017 and 2018 – so many super stylish options and I’m sure you’ll find one you love too!

Our Sheepadoodle puppy, Dino (sometimes referred to as dirty dino and pictured above via instagram) has been with us a year now and although we love him dearly, he makes keeping our home clean a real challenge. He enters the house from outside and reminds me of pig pen from The Peanuts. So, I am pretty much vacuuming the floors on a daily basis. (agh.)

All this cleaning has me thinking of  my favorite spring cleaning essentials (while it’s still spring!). I love that so many cleaning products are eco-friendly, help reduce clutter and are now super stylish … which just makes the task much more fun, don’t you think?
