Stylish Ideas for a Happy Home

Using an oversized whiteboard gives you enough room for notes, lists, messages and more!

You’ve just counted down to the New Year and now it’s 2016! You have 12 months ahead of you to start fresh and reach for the stars. So how do you make sure that your year stays on track the way you want it to? Organization of course!

Whether you’re usually organized or tend to be the opposite, taking time to incorporate new and creative ways to help your home remain in one brilliant piece can really make a difference. So instead of choosing what’s always been done, instead, shake things up to see how fabulous your life can really be!

Create a Keep the Change Jar: 

Place a pretty jar (such as a mason jar!) where everyone can see so that any loose coins around the house always have a home.

Have a Calendar on the Fridge:

Place a monthly or weekly calendar in a high traffic area such as your refrigerator so that it gets multiple views a day!

Make a Homework Station:

Create a mini homework station so that pens, pencils, tape, markers, rulers and more always have a place to reside instead of on the floor or counter.

Incorporate Wooden Crates:

Instead of piling up homework, boots, backpacks and sports gear, opt for some rustic wooden crates that can be stacked and placed however you like. Surprisingly you’ll find that with this simple idea, your entryway will appear completely put together as well as stylish!

Use a 4-Month Calendar:

When they said the early bird gets the worm, they weren’t mistaken. With a four-month calendar in place you’ll always be ahead of the game!

Design a Key Holder:

I know it seems like EVERYONE should have one of these built into his or her homes but we found surprisingly not. If you don’t already have a prominent key holder, make sure to incorporate one this year instead of wasting precious time looking for those lost keys.

Contain Your Cookbooks:

Instead of displaying your cookbooks out on the counter, place them in a cool wire basket. You’ll be astonished at how much space this frees up as well as will help you keep your kitchen looking super tidy.

Display Your Jewelry: 

It can take hours going through a huge jewelry box or closet to find that one bracelet or necklace you want to wear. Instead, display your most loved pieces around and in vases for easy access and of course to save time!

    I love the decals that you showed in this post. Can those be placed on windows that have a film on them? I know they can go on plain glass, but don’t want to ruin the solar film on my windows. I definitely need the calendar one in my office, but my best spot for that is the window!

      Hi Veronica,
      Thank you for your kind comment! WallPops stick to any smooth, flat surface and are easily removable without leaving residue behind.
      However, we have not tested our products on window film, so we cannot say for sure how they would affect that surface.

      Please let us know if you have any other questions.
