There's nothing like a group showing up at your house for an impromptu New Year's Eve countdown to make you realize it's been awhile since you've cleaned and why is everything such a mess and oh God we really never do put anything away do we.
So if you also made a resolution to clean up and get organized, I've rounded up a few items that can help you along the way, and look good too. There's nothing like starting a new year off with a clean home and a fresh slate, and some bursts of bright color can lighten up these wintry doldrums (will it ever be sunny and warm again?).
Storage baskets in unique materials and with stylish silhouettes - like copper wire or woven leather - do double duty by stashing your stuff and perking up a room at the same time.
Get desktop clutter under control with organizers so stylish you can't resist using them, like this white ceramic and light wood organizer, or one that looks like a city skyline.
Wrangle small objects and keep them safe with matching canisters in sleek white ceramic with bold bright stripes or earthy pastels and cork.
Everyone needs a place to drop their keys and catch their loose change, paperclips, and other pocket contents. Make that place a brightly colored tray - like this one in yellow (with a little bud vase!) or this one in blue & white stripes - and you add a pop of color that brightens the room and transforms your mess into a stylish, artful display.
I have what some might call a book problem - our wall unit is filled and we've resorted to stacking bunches of books on top of each other (and I can't stop buying more . . . ). This cute shelf provides some extra storage space without being a snooze fest. And this slim coat rack is a perfect way to add style and scoop up messy jacket piles in narrow hallways.
