Organization Inspiration





{all images from decor8, for more pictures click here}

This week, I've been struggling with some really bizarre sleeping patterns which consist of sleeping no earlier than 3 am and waking up around noon. I don't want to complain, because I feel extremely fortunate to be one of few adults who still get to enjoy somewhat of a carefree, summer, but I can't seem to kick the guilty feeling of not getting much of anything done during the day. I feel like such a teenager, well, an old one at that.

One of the things on my summer to-do list was to organize my house from top to bottom, but seeing as I have been in dreamland for the past week, it hasn't been successful. I started doing some cleaning last week, and realized that I have come dangerously close to becoming a hoarder. For whatever reason, I feel compelled to keep anything and everything because it either has some form of sentimental quality, or may perhaps come in "handy" in the future. I'm sure this is what the hoarders receiving interventions on television used to say before their house was declared a landfill... haha I laugh now, but that could easily become me. I'm using these photos of my favorite house tour on decor8 to give me a good kick in the butt. This charming little home in Vienna is only a meager 650 square feet, but is perfectly styled with necessary items that are functional yet beautiful at the same time. Letting go is hard, but I think I can do it. We'll see how it goes...

If you have any home organization tips, please send them my way =) I need all the help I can get!

  1. Tips from me? I'm a hoarder too! :)
    But sometimes I'm good.
    I take a big black plastic bag. I put all those clothes I'm ready to throw away at that very moment into that bag and never look back again.
    When it's full I take it to charity.
    I've survived so far...:)

  5. Lovely place. Looks great! Very clean! I love shelves for organizing, as long as they are not everywhere. When properly put together, shelves can really maximize storage space in small places.

  6. If a job for organizing existed that paid 6 figures, i'm so there! You're not a hoarder, just a keeper of pretty things! I'm not helping much am I?

  8. It's so hard to declutter. I recommend moving house every few years - that's what we seem to do. I always get rid of heaps of stuff while packing, but then find more stuff that I don't really need when unpacking too. When you have to try to find a new home for things, decluttering seems to be easier!
