Seeing as I was featured in print in an “Organizing” issue, thought I will share some organizing tips now and then.
On one side of my home office is cabinetry and workspace which I blogged about here. (It’s getting a little makeover too as I replace the desktop with stained wood.)

This is when having something custom made is the best solution. So I contacted Vie from Anvil Wrought Iron and we created this bookcase called the “Vanessa.” :)
I wanted to have a place to store trays for client samples along with their files. It really is the best way to keep this organized on current projects – everything is together in one spot and I know where to quickly find it. (I’m actually on the hunt for smaller trays (15”x15”) so I can fit three across.)

Yes, I know I have a bit of a magazine obsession – this is only a portion of it, the rest is in my family room and bedroom!
You can’t tell from the photo but the bottom shelf is mirror and the rest is glass. (I’m going to switch the mirror shelf to the top shelf so it is more visible.) I love the aged brass finish.
The gorgeous navy paint wall colour which I absolutely love is Para’s Straight Leg P5157-75. I’m so glad I didn’t go any darker towards black as was my original intention.
Well must go, I’m inspired by all those runners I cheered on yesterday, and am off to the gym!
Have a happy week! I’ll be back with a message from one of my sponsors mid-week, which you won’t want to miss!
