CREATING A FUNCTIONAL ENTRY SPACE

Is your home lacking that formal entry space area? Mine is!! I wanted something functional and simple in this space that I loved. I added a cute iron Home hook rack by the front door that I found from Home Goods for around  $10. Perfect for backpacks and coats when this summer heat wears off. 

Keeping it simple but functional was what I had in mind. I like the idea of a mirror in this space because it kind of gives it an open feeling airy feeling. 

I moved my small bench over to this tiny wall and plain on putting a basket for shoes underneath it. Lord knows there’s nothing more time consuming than getting your kids to find their shoes let’s alone put them on. 


For now I like the way this space has turned out. There’s not too much going on here but everything that I needed to make it work. A small bench to take shoes off and hooks for jackets and back packs. Remember it’s not always magazine worthy but it’s your home and it has to work for you! 


Thanks for stopping by and have a great monday!!

ORGANIZATION & THE SEMI CLEAN HOME…SOME FRIENDLY TIPS.

One thing I always seem to get asked either on Instagram,my blog or in person is you’re house is so pretty but how do you do it with kids. I have two very honest answers. ONE. There’s lots of stuff going on cropped outside my photos…and TWO Baskets! Lots and lots of storage baskets. 

I decided to round up some clever baskets and trunks I found online for you all. I so am serious when I say storage and baskets are a life saver with kids. So many toys and so little time. You have to have at least one or two in every room or at least that’s my trick 

So here’s the basket round up for uou all…just click the link that describes the photo the best. Let me know if you ended up purchasing any.
