Small Walk-in Closet Design Reveal

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

One bonus of the new addition in our home, was a walk-in closet. It’s on the smaller size, so I turned to EasyClosets to help maximize every inch. As you may recall, the design was done virtually with EasyClosets and we installed it ourselves. Here are some images of the closet design and install in case you missed it.

The closet’s neutral color palette flows from the bedroom and bathroom. My starting point for the design was Cole & Son’s Great Wave wallpaper which was selected for an accent wall. The beautiful crashing wave design was inspired a 19th century Japanese woodprint.  To complement the coastal feel and grays in the wallpaper, I choose the driftwood finish for the cabinets and layered natural elements such as the jute rug and seagrass baskets.

Love the shoe rack! I can now display and find all of my favorites quickly!

The hutch drawer unit provides both me and my husband plenty of drawer and opening shelving. I love have counter space for jewelry and other trinkets.

Pretty Pink Roses :: The Bouqs Company

Flowers bring a fresh, natural beauty to any space. Through color, size and texture floral arrangements are a terrific decor accessory to help set a room’s mood. So when Bouqs, the premium online floral delivery service asked if I’d like to review a bouquet for myself, it was a no-brainer. I selected a dozen long stem pink roses called Sweetness. Sweet indeed! Like most of Bouqs flowers, they were grown at the foot of a mineral rich volcano in South America and arrive a few days later at my front door.

Here are the pretty pink roses in my daughter’s new flamingo room. So simple, elegant and sweet. And boy are these roses huge and long-lasting. Here’s an instagram of them a few days later. Amazing.

Another difference that makes Bouqs special? They cut flowers to order and avoid a lot of waste. In addition, Bouqs only sources from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers. Love this!

Getting Organized :: Stylish Desk Accessories

As we look forward to 2014, many of us are setting new year’s goals and resolutions. High on most lists is getting organized (no surprise here I’m sure!). For me I struggle with desk organization and aim to keep it more tidy this coming year. The right desk accessories are key to creating an efficient work-space, yet so many are ho-hum and aren’t pretty. That’s why I’m thrilled about teaming up with See Jane Work at Office Depot to help me create a beautiful, streamlined desk that reflects my personal style. Their collection combines fresh style and smart organization – can’t get better than that! See Jane Work’s chic office accessories come in fresh patterns and color palettes perfect for mixing and matching. I selected items in hues of blue, pink and white and love how it coordinates with the items I already owned.

Organizing Tip: Write down your list of to dos and cross them off as they are completed – prioritize them for even more efficiency! Here I’m using See Jane Work’s “To Do” sticky notepad!

Oh (faux) Christmas Tree

Yes I did. Call me crazy. I’ve decorated the Christmas tree already. With Thanksgiving running so late this year, I decided “what the heck!” Don’t worry though, it won’t be a pine-needle-less, fire hazard by the holiday. It’s an artificial tree sent to me by Tree Classics. I’m super impressed with the quality – it’s hard to tell it’s not real even when you are in the same room. The only thing I miss about having a live tree is the lovely pine scent that fills the house.

I selected the  7 1/2′ classic Fraser tree with clear lights because of it’s narrow profile – great for small rooms. Love that the lights were already on the tree and that they are LED! Assembly took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I did have to pull in my hubby to put on the top layers though.

This year I went with a crisp white and rich gold color palette for the tree decorations. Tons of white feathers were placed throughout the tree and along the top of the Chinese cabinet. I also added a new new items this year such as the fab faux fur tree skirt (above), owl snowglobe (next to the white peonies above) and felt snowflake ornaments (below) I picked up at West Elm!
