I love to be organized and neat. Nothing frustrates me more than to know I have something and not be able to put my hands on it. When I first heard of Marie Kondo, I was intrigued; then I watched an episode of her show. I was completely stressed out. No more Marie and “sparks of joy” for this one. I did find Rachel Rosenthal of rachaelorganizes via instagram and become a devotee. This weekend I decided to stop looking and actually organize my bath. It was a perfect time. I’m in the process of re-doing my master suite which includes the bath. They are almost finished and so what better time to organize everything than when you are putting the bath back together.
I opted for acrylic organizers for the drawers and cabinets. Amazon and the Container Store to the rescue with idesign and Mdesign containers for everything from makeup to brushes and medicine. I am in love with the large divided turntable. I think I want another for the kitchen! I’m thinking of a second order as I needed another two or three bins than I’d anticipated.
For the counter, I opted for white trimmed in black lacquer bath accessories from Hudson & Vine. They provide a clean but finished look for the vanity top. I topped off the look with a powder dish that had been my Mom’s that I’m using for hair ties and a silver nut dish to hold jewelry that I found a few years ago from Gryphon Estate Silver. They have beautiful things and I love a silver accent.
Now I’m relaxed and can find things again!
