Welcome to your first stop on the Organize Me Pretty house tour series!

I’m so excited to kick-off off the Organize Me Pretty house tour series with a few favorite organized spaces and solutions right here in the Carmona household! I hope you enjoy…

 

My Living Room Storage Projects

Another name for my living room should be “the all purpose room” because we really do live, play and work in here…which kind of means the storage in here has to be a beast!

Living Room workspace

Creating beautiful boxes, baskets, and other storage types is only half the battle… coming up with a system to maintain our precious items was the other half of the battle! You can read more about my Puzzle Storage system, Library Book basket, Disc Storage here, Paper & Fabric storage, and my Painted Jar storage.

My Organized Kitchen Spaces

My favorite part of the kitchen is what is behind the closed cabinet doors. Opening up those doors reveals an endless variety of amazing dinner options!

Beans and Grain storage 1

I store all my dry goods in containers, including a large variety of beans, rice, grains, and baking goods. You can read all about my bakers cabinet here.

I also keep all my spices organized where I can reach up and shake a “dash of this” while cooking stove top. Then nearby are a variety of herbs…some for cooking, others for wellness.

My Upstairs Hall Storage Space

It’s just one bookcase, and yet it makes all the storage difference in the world! I house everything I need to accommodate guests in my upstairs hall. From the sheets I use in their rooms, to slippers and toilettries to make their stay perfection.

An Organized Bathroom Space

I realize that it is often the less “romantic” spaces (like the bathrooms) that need the most organization, but it keeps my life simple and sweet… and frankly, that’s all the romance I need out of decor! 😀 Is it odd that the bathroom has some of my favorite organizing features?

Recessed Storage - upstairs bathroom

I love this open recessed storage above, and the painted bathroom vanity that houses the messy items I prefer stocked in plastic storage containers. You wouldn’t believe what this vanity and that recessed space looked like before…

This bathroom space has so many pretty projects that make the perfect organizing tools. My tip to you: a little paint or stain can really bring some glam to your organizing projects! See how to stain a basket here.

Basket Makeover

From storage baskets to bowls, think outside the plastic box when storing items… A little gold paint can go a long way to bring a little glam to storage bowls!

Bowls-Soap1

Now, suffer no delusions, I don’t have the cleanest house (blegh, hate cleaning…plus I have 3 kids and a husband so you know, that doesn’t equal tidy), but I do love organizing, and having these spaces function like a charm for my family makes up for the days I get frustrated with my lack of a perfectly tidy house. Well what can I say, it’s the little things! 😉 I hope you enjoyed my little tour!

Thank you for so much for stopping by!

Next up in the Organize Me Pretty house tours is Courtney from A Thoughtful Place. She is an amazing blogger with creative projects and STUNNING photos! I’m always inspired when I stop by her blog. Be sure to pop over there to see her organized spaces.

    I did not know houses actually look this organized. I need to get it together. I felt good about myself because I have a basket for my hair ties in a drawer. This is amazing what you have done!

      Thank you! The plastic containers that store beans & grains are from Walmart, and the spice canisters are from a Dollar Store. :) Thanks for reading!

    Thanks so much for including me in the series Ursula! You’re home is just stunning. I love the gray, white/creams, and gold combo mixed with other natural textures. The wire basket on your bookcase is awesome, the kitchen belongs in Martha’s house, and your guest bookcase is genius and gorgeous. Oh, and I need a puzzle box.. I can’t wait to move to Japan just to paint our walls whatever color I want (or can find)! Hopefully I can I find a beautiful taupe or gray. 😉

    Ursula, I love this post! I’m an organizational freak too, so this is right up my alley. I especially love your upstairs hall bookcase. Very soothing tones and lined up and matching items always make me feel relaxed… :-) I found you from the Stumble group and I’m glad I did. But I tried to stumble your post and I don’t see a stumble button on it anywhere. I don’t have the Chrome toolbar because I’m on a Mac. Will pin instead.
