Why Your Storage Should Double as Decor

Today I’m featuring a guest post by Ksenya Malina, founder of Time & Place Interiors, a New York-based design studio focusing on combining vintage + modern for homeowners seeking to elevate their spaces into uniquely special places. Ksenya’s specialty is making historic properties suitable to modern living while respecting their original design, as well as adding distinguished character to new build units.

Is there even such a thing as having enough closet space? The quest to organize our homes is endless. Seasonal accessories, pet gear, piling subscription magazines… the fabric of our everyday lives is real and can be overwhelming.

Walk-ins and built-ins are not a practical answer for everyone. But clever storage solutions that cut through clutter while adding considered design can be achieved with a bit of creativity.

Think of storage as a “shopportunity.” Every container, bin, tray, hook, and even open display is a chance to invite appealing design into your home, doing double duty as organization plus style. The more organized your space is, with a proper place for each loose item, the more you can relax in a serene environment. Read on for my tips for authentic, sustainable storage to keep your place both tidy and visually pleasing at the same time.
