Ok guys, get ready for some serious organizing porn. I recently got a sneak peek at Neat Method‘s most recent portfolio photos and I was so impressed I just had to share with you all. If you haven’t heard of Neat Method, they’re a company that specializes in stylish home organization. These girls after my own heart and are so talented, as you’ll see from these images of their work below:
So beautiful right?? Raise your hand if you’re feeling inspired to get your home organized! For more, check out the fun before and afters on their website.

These photos are from my closet and the little dressing/vanity area right outside my closet. I try to keep all my accessories (and I have a lot…I LOVE accessories) out where I can see them, but I like for them to look neat. Right now I’ve got most of my clutches lined up on a shelf using pot lid holders that I picked up at The Container Store. As for my perfumes and jewelry, I love to display them out on trays. We sell a lot of trays at The Zhush and this python one is my favorite. I also love this little ceramic tray as a catchall for keeping smaller items like cell phones and earrings looking neat and pretty. Finally, when I’m not sure if I’m ready to get rid of something, I usually move it into one of these fabric square storage boxes (also from the Container Store). If I go looking for it, then I know I need to keep it, if not, then after about a year, I’ll usually give it away or donate the item. If it’s something really sentimental, I’ll save it for my children.
For this week’s ‘How I Organize’ series post, I’m excited to feature lifestyle blogger and vintage shop owner Christina Han Johnston. She gives us a peek inside her jewelry drawer and shares with us how she keeps it beautifully organized:
I’ve always been a magpie, even when I was a little girl, so it’s no surprise that now as an adult, I own an online vintage home and jewelry shop (soon to be reopened). Since I collect jewelry for the shop all the time, I sometimes keep pieces for myself (a perk of being the owner!) and so my own personal jewelry collection can get out of control. I discovered one day on Pinterest that you could not only organize, but also display your jewelry in small plates and bowls.
Well, luckily for me, I also collect small vintage plates so that’s how I like to store my jewelry in my vanity table. It’s an aesthetically pleasing way for me to see what’s in heavy rotation and it makes it easy for me to grab and go when I’m in a rush. A lot of these plates I found at my local thrift store, so organization doesn’t have to mean spending lots of money. And I love to use the gift boxes that my jewelry comes in (as long as they’re pretty!). It’s a practical way to protect really special pieces, and a great way to add a pop of color to your display area.
‘How I Organize‘ is a guest series that gives a peek at how others beautifully organize their spaces. Find more of the series posts here.
Absolutely loving this beautifully organized dressing room from the home of Rita Hazan:
Shoes are neatly arranged on white open shelves (from Ikea!) and beauty essentials are on a glamorous mirrored vanity
A stylish modern black platter helps keep things organized.
Such much goodness here – the big window with floor to ceiling drapes, the tufted daybead, the unique gold wall studs, the brass glass pendant…
A patterned tray corrals jewelry and pretty objects.

Today I’m delighted to bring to you a new How I Organize post! Shop owner and lifestyle blogger Monika Hibbs (who just became a mom to a sweet baby boy!), gives us a look at how she beautifully organizes her jewelry and collection of perfumes:
I like to have most of my everyday jewelry in place, ready for me to quickly pick up and go! Having all those jewels organized on my side table along side my perfume is perfect! The silver tray is from The Cross Design, one of my favorite home décor stores in Yale Town, Vancouver. The Stag Head jewelry holder, which holds my bracelets is from Front & Company in Vancouver.
For pieces that I only take out for special occasions I like to have them all wrapped up in the boxes they came in. I laugh, because my husband thinks I’m a horder- whereas I like the organization of each piece in it’s place! Takes up a little bit more room, but those boxes are just too nice to throw away!

Back when I was studying abroad in Spain, I remember walking into a Zara Home store and feeling like a kid in a candy store. There were so many lovely decor items everywhere I turned. I was sad to find out though that there were no Zara Home locations in the US, and while that’s still the case, as of this month the line is now available online. I browsed the selection this morning, and found several great trays, boxes, bins and baskets for beautifully organizing the home:

Why not re-purpose a tiered dessert tray or cake stand and use it in the vanity? It can serve as a creative way to hold and display jewelry, accessories, perfume and/or makeup:

Check out this accessories closet:
When it comes to organizing bracelets, a good option for those who like to have things put away out-of-sight, is to dedicate a portion of a drawer to them and use organizers to keep things separated and neat. Clear ones always look nice. Remember to measure before buying!
For those who are more visually oriented (right-brained!) and prefer to have things out, trays are great for corralling pieces and keeping surfaces from looking like a cluttered mess.
Another option is to hang them on a jewelry tree, which makes for a lovely display.
Last but not least, a fun idea is to keep them in pretty vintage cups. Look for ones with a wide enough mouth to fit the width of your pieces.
