It’s that time of year! School will be starting soon (I know, too soon!) and with that moms and students everywhere will be challenged to keep their new schedules, events and activities organized. Keeping a calendar is an essential part in helping manage your daily activities and prioritize your time. It’s also a great way to kick off a new school year and even start 2016 off on the right foot. Did you know that you can reduce stress by simply logging appointments, events and assignments in a daily planner? When kept up-to-date, a planner allows you to find information quickly, prioritize effectively and schedule appointments on the spot.

As you may know from year’s past, I’m a bit old school and prefer writing down appointments, events and day-to-day tasks in a traditional daily planner. With so many stylish designs in a variety of price points, it was tough to narrow down my favorites! If I’ve missed any you love, please comment and let me know.

Fresh Picks :: Laundry Room Supplies

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

The chic laundry room design by Evars + Anderson earlier this week had me thinking about the unavoidable task of cleaning, folding and ironing the endless laundry that piles up. Okay, I rarely iron, but seem to be washing and folding clothing several times a week.

To brighten up the dreaded task, I’ve rounded up a few fresh, functional and innovative laundry room products to help you get the job done.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Laundry Room

It’s on many of our wish lists; a fabulous laundry room. Perhaps it’s why the Laundry Room in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase has received so much buzz. Inspired by the colorful butterflies in Christian Lacroix’s Butterfly Parade wallpaper, Evars + Anderson Interior Design transformed a small space into a very chic and functional laundry room. The wallpaper (which has a cool 3D effect) covers the walls and ceiling and grabs your attention first. E+A pairs the whimsical pattern with timeless materials such as polish Nero marble for the countertops and black & white penny round tiles for the floor. They also redesigned the upper cabinets using a lattice pattern – for a vintage, yet fresh look.

But, perhaps my favorite detail are the custom drying rack drawers hidden above the washer and dryer. Love this!

happy decorating,
