10 Livable & Functional Spaces {Organizational Style}

Beautiful and Functional OfficeNew England Home


ow that the holidays are behind us, I think many of us crave a renewed sense of order in our home. We feel like we can finally get back to our routines, but with that comes a need for functional spaces that make sense for our family.

I love finding inspiration for livable rooms that offer storage for our everyday needs. Whether a room offers open or closed shelving or storage, or free standing or built-in cabinetry, how we choose to organize our home also offers an opportunity to create our own unique and charming design style.

Adding storage to a home can be an expensive undertaking, but it doesn’t have to be! If you make clever use of what you already have and find creative solutions to solve your own storage dilemmas, you can make room for what you need in every room of your home.

Happy organizing!

  1. I tend to get in the organizational mode at the beginning of every year too. I’m determined that this is the year that I’m going to tackle some of our closets and a junk drawer. I tend to clean them out every so often, but I need to find a way to keep them organized throughout the year. Thanks for some great examples!

  2. Oh that wall of books, the ladder to the loft … YES, oh YES!

  7. I also am hoping to get some more organizing done after tomorrow- the last day of Christmas. First up is taking down all those decorations! Then I am planning on going through my whole house and decluttering and cleaning.
