A Beautifully Organized Creative Workspace

In love with this creative workspace from the home of Darcy Miller, illustrator and editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings. It’s the chicest craft room I ever did see! It’s not only fully stocked with all the supplies you could ever need for any creative project, but it’s also beautifully organized.  Everything has a home designated based on frequency of use, so things are accessible and easy to find. With the exception of the art supplies which bring a cheerful rainbow array of color to the space, most everything (the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, and storage containers) is black, white, and gray. This creates a uniform look and keeps the room from feeling chaotic or overwhelming.

Lovely Find

Came across this glam brass holder and colored pencils set and thought I’d share.

Love how it elegantly stands upright and keeps the pencils so beautifully lined up. Perfect for someone who loves attention to detail.

How Melissa Organizes Her Fabric Library

Today participating in the How I Organize series, is the beautiful and talented Melissa Warner of the design firm Massucco Warner Miller.  She gives us a peek inside her team’s beautifully organized LA studio:

When we moved into our new West Hollywood design studio, we wanted to restructure the way we organized our fabric library. Although we’d never compile an entire room from our fabric library, we do love to have our favorite fabrics and wallpapers at our fingertips, to use to add that final touch on a room scheme, or sometimes even inspire an entire room’s palette. The fabrics are organized by color and then type (geometric, floral, stripe, solid/linen/velvet/etc.) and with the clear doors it’s very user friendly and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for!

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is the home office of interior designer Melissa Warner.


Metal locker baskets with labeled tags contain and organize her many fabric swatches. The bookcase makes use of vertical space.

On the other end of the room, closet doors covered in a bold over-scaled poppy print wallpaper make the room feel lively and hide more storage. A skirted glass-topped table provides a surface on which to lay out swatches and plans for her designs, while a Lucite chair helps keep the space looking uncluttered by taking up little visual space.
