House Beautiful, Designed to Order
Stylish Solutions to Organize your HomeBook - 2006
Design clutter out of your life forever! Try these effective and attractive strategies for making a place for everything--and keeping everything in its place. Clutter has an insidious way of sneaking up on everybody--no matter how well designed the house or how spacious. So how can you keep the mess--those letters, jackets, backpacks, and other items that accumulate everywhere--under control? The answers lie in smart interior design, not just housekeeping. By establishing a common-sense place for everything you own, you'll keep the clutter from coming back…not just for a little while, but for good. With these great ideas, exquisitely illustrated, you'll find hundreds of clever ways to create a composed bedroom that encourages sleep and romance; an inviting and efficient kitchen; orderly workspaces that promote productivity; tidy bathrooms; and a funtastic kid's space that's neat in every sense of the word. From maximizing closets with hanging rods and cubbies to installing specialty cabinets, from making use of the bathroom sink pedestal to choosing a hard-working coffee table, there's a suitable solution for every room. Plus: "Style File" boxes throughout offer quick and smart suggestions. A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.
