    Starting off organized

    Recently, I was happy to be included in a group of fabulous bloggers, each sharing a favourite organization tip on Decor Happy. While sometimes I can feel that I'm barely holding on at the seams with things as life gets progressively hectic, one area I've always been vigilant about is my drawers. Since my early teenage years, I've had a persistent obsession with dividing and compartmentalizing my cosmetics drawers often using found containers (like old sushi trays or chocolate boxes) for storage.

    I dream of a calm little oasis of organization like this beautiful dressing room to start my days (or evenings) on the right note.

    A fun way to add a little splash of colour to a space - casually accessorize with a favourite silk scarf. A fun burst of bold pattern and so easy to switch out according to your mood. 
    While wallpaper can sometimes look a little 'heavy', here the delicate details used just on one feature wall look airy and fresh.

    I'm a firm believer that spending a little time and getting a few tools (like these drawer organizers) to organize your drawers is one of the best investments you'll make. Starting off the day without the mad panicked flurry to find everything just sets things off on the right note. Being organized just makes life easier!

    Starting off the day in this lovely attic dressing room must surely lead to better mornings! I love how airy and bright this space is - especially in this type of attic room which can sometimes feel a little claustrophobic.
