What do you think of this look for a bathroom? I find it so calming and I love the pretty tray, flowers and candles. Do you love-it, or not-so-love it?

It looks pretty but I too prefer minimal stuff on my counters.

I like the colors, but I don't like extra stuff on the counter like that (jus the candle, or the flowers)

Love this

I like the colours but I don’t like anything on my counters, and I don’t like the sinks on top of the counters but that’s me. When I do Home Staging I do not use any dried flowers at all, nor do I have them in my home, they’re dust collectors, again my opinion. Fresh flowers fine.

10 years ago i would have loved it... Today, I find I'm more fond of the clear nothing on the counter look.

Very pretty!

It's pretty but tge glass mirror tray would need alot of extra cleaning

Love it

Love it

Love!

L♥️VE!

I love the high end and elegant look too.

Looks like the items I use to stage my bathrooms! Adding softer, organic textures to spaces that have many hard surfaces, helps create balance & warms up the space.

Friday Funny. Actually, this is a really good idea and we do it often. Cleaning companies don't always tidy and organize before they clean, so we will come in and tidy everything up and put everything away in a timely and functional manner, which makes it easier for the cleaning company to come in and clean.

We work with reputable cleaning companies, so if you need both organizing and cleaning, we can help you out with the organizing, and have a cleaning company come in and clean. It's a win-win situation!

Are you ready to tackle 2019? I have been doing some planning but needed something that I could view every month. I like to plan ahead so I thought I would share with you my new wall calendar. I bought it off of Amazon and I am now ready to start filling it in. This will make it much easier for me to plan. Yay! Sometimes it is the smallest things (although this is not small lol) that makes me happy. 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

Sometimes we lack motivation to clean or tidy the house. A great way to find some energy is to play lively music.

Today's Fill in the Blank asks for that one song that always gets you up dancing! Tell us what it is in the comments 🙂

Q-Bert. Dating yourself Joe

reminds me of a video game i used to play when i was a kid. Qbert

I am dizzy

I see the Amish tumbling blocks quilt design

They're nice, unique, suspect it would take me a bit of time to get used to them.

Escheresque

It's making me very dizzy!

reminds me of the old Atari game Qubert

It reminds me of a video game called Q-Bert.

Gorgeous!

A bit distracting, don't you think?

Our kitchen organization client last week wasn’t looking for “Pinterest Perfect”. She needed “Family Functional” for her busy household—food organized by category and placed in labeled bins for easy sorting and access.

The client was thrilled with her new space and excited to have a much more efficient pantry. ⭐️ @ Ottawa, Ontario

I can and do organize this for others, the problem is they don’t always follow through even though I come up with systems for them to keep it like this. Not just counters but closets, cupboards etc., but if they don’t follow through it just doesn’t work.

What do you think of tiny houses? Living in one would certainly force you to declutter and stay organized.

Could you do it? I love the bright wall of windows in this one!

So, I have been intrigued by them for quite a while. I love the idea of a lesser foot print & more disposable income. Generally, the designs are not great--I want a full bathroom (with bathtub) and not outside my kitchen. Yuck! Also, I want a decent kitchen that is actually functional for cooking. And...the final issue--stairs to the loft (not a ladder) and a loft I can stand up in. I am too old for a ladder & crawling around my bedroom. 🙂

We are moving to a tiny house soon! So I guess I’ll see if I can do it or not😬 actually looking forward to it. We have to much STUFF that is not needed. I think it’s all in the way it’s designed and multifunctional gadgets. 😊
