Even the unrealistic (for me) ideas let me fantasize....not a bad thing!
Martha Stewart's staff has compiled organizational ideas for every room of the house (and even rooms that most of us do not have). Many of the ideas are just common sense, but things I would not have thought of on my own. I had quite a few "ah-ha" moments while reading this book.
I have used several of the ideas: for the broom closet, the office, the garage, and for folding those darn fitted sheets that always end up in a ball, it seems.
I loved the picture wall, the fold-out windowsill, the armoire converted into an office, the herb "pantry", and the spice drawers.
Now if Martha would just send someone over to make all these things for me!
All of the ideas are fresh and original.
The book goes room by room through the house: Living spaces, Working spaces, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Basements, etc.
Martha and her team make the task of organizing seem do-able and also offer some very stylish ways of keeping clutter out of site, like the hidden book shelves on the sides of a headboard, starting a key corral by the front door or keeping your computer, fax machine and printer in a converted armoire - a 'secret office' you can put anywhere in the house.
There are lots of tips for storage, keeping clutter off desks, organizng a pantry, a linen closet, a medicine cabinet, a spice rack, a clothes closet, a laundry room, your kitchen drawers, etc.
It's a bit of a vanity project, like most of Martha's books, with photos of Martha's homes and rooms, but that's kind of fun too.
