I have been reviewing one of the Organization Kits, which for us is more of a family organizing system to help us juggle all of the activities, homework and sports that seem to overwhelm us from a scheduling perspective. I decided to choose the Kolkata Organization Kit, which is a subtle white and grey kit that is accented with jewels. I applied it to the walls in our kitchen, which is really the hub of just about every family (it definitely is for us). This is where we plan our meals; figure out who is going where each day and when we have a day of rest (which is not very often). It’s nice to have this area for all of us to write down important dates or notes.

We adore Rachael Ray and we are huge fans of Genevieve Gorder from HGTV, too! so, we were over the moon with excitement when Rachael & Genevieve featured our Black Jack Stripes on a recent episode! A viewer wrote in asking for advice on how to make her small bathroom appear more spacious. Genevieve had lots of great tips, including adding our stripes decals to enhance the perception of space. By drawing the eye up and down the wall, the stripes added to the illusion that the room was larger. We love the results of all of her suggesions! Check out the full video herefor the whole story!
Helpful advice for mom
1. “Everything, everything, everything,” says professional organizer Stacy Erickson, who specializes in child and family environments. “From spare change to lunchboxes to sports equipment, nothing should live on the counter or floor permanently.”
… 7. A nice big calendar on the wall in the kitchen is the easiest way to keep everyone on the same page. Add a dry-erase board (for family notes) and an a corkboard (for permission slips and appointment cards) to create a simple message center. Try the all-in-one Floral Medley Organizer Kit from Wall Pops.

Inject some style into your space on the cheap with these design tips
Owning a temporary or transitional space doesn’t mean it can’t evoke style and reflect your taste… Here’s where you should and should not spend your money:
DON’T invest in fancy trims, moulding installations or painting an entire room. Adding easily-removable wall decals or painting a focal wall a fashionable colour are two options that can easily be removed or erased when you are ready to sell. No need to paint or add mouldings to add character to your space; simply stick up removable wall decals and create the focal wall of your dreams. Wall Pops Stripes from $15, WallPops.com
