Organized entry




Last week I showed our new foyer refresh , today I will like to bring you into how I organize this space to function for our family's needs.



I wanted to keep the top functional but less clutter . I stared by removing the big metal tray I used to have under the mirror and exchange I brought in this little box that has the metal trimming I like plus a beautiful agate gem on top . Like that  by giving it some character and that pop of color . The rest I have is some flowers to soften the space as well a small vase {cup}to hold some pens for those last minutes notes.  A season picture frame for a touch of personality I want people to still know that actual people live in this house and of course a great smelling candle for also that pop of car as warmth .





This small glass box holds by everyday items I need before getting out of the house like for example my keys and small wallet.






This drawer still gives me a bit of anxiety because there is a lot of going on but is all what we need . From extra pencils, tapes ,note cards ,small note pad, my check book {who knows} , extra candles , air freshener , lighter , lotion , body spray , boogie wipes , regular wipes , sunglasses ,headphones , head band  , headache pills {it has come on handy more than once } , q tips ,lip care , extra chargers , tape measure and extra small tools .











Shoe storage ; to be honest with you this unit is very small and it does not hold all our shoes but it does hold our day to day shoes {some of my tennis shoes stay here but the more "fancy ones" are located in my closet .}





The boys every day shoes fit perfectly .








Don't you have a daughter ? you might ask , yes we do she is still small and her shoes are tiny and they don't fit in this cabinet properly so I gave her her own spot . This two baskets work perfectly for her day to day shoes{like her mamma she also has a "fancy shoe storage " in her closet} .









 Also I like to put a small basket next to the stairs for those items that wonder upstairs from the playroom that have to be Brough back down at some point of the day .




until next time ..

Foyer Refresh






Oh yes, is finally here !! imagine my joy when all this was done . It totally needed an updated look ..like I said here ..this where my main inspiration for this new refresh.


It all stared with a must needed declutter and paint job .!!






And here is the after math ... enjoy ..




{So I'm trying this new camera and lens out honestly not my favorite so I think I'm going back to my old one or getting a whole new set.}




This is the new from top of the stairs{living room area}






To me it just seem more airy yes I still have almost the same amount of stuff but the more neutral colors give it the appearance of being a bigger space .

Disclaimer: the pops of pink is because summer is here and I wanted to give it a bit of color . I do change colors within each specific season just to be a bit on the festive side and also because I do still really love a pop of color 





When my previous post about my foyer I had a few people asking about that "how do you have space to walk through with a bench on the to of the stairs blocking the way " My answer to that is that we have way more thank plenty of space I still haven't touch the bench or the wall once since I've had this bench in here . I don't really know why it looks so narrow but it honestly not at all I'm not saying the two people can go though at the same time unless your kids but I can go up with both hands full of shopping bags and not touch the bench or wall without twisting or adjusting my position . So to answer that question there is way enough space and this are the dimensions  {the space there is 44 inches wide and the bench only takes 13in of it so with that said there is enough space .I Hope that helps =).






Oh im so in love with this knobs they are this crystal mercury glass knobs with a vintage Crome design . I wish I could find more but I haven't been that lucky yet , since this a found at HomeGoods one day and I graved them thinking I'm going to need them some day and well I did .I love how different look it gives to a plain dresser it gives it a more expensive look to a pice that it is not . I get so giddy with the small changes that makes a big difference , don't you ??









I love this print my sister got them for me because she saw them on a website and she immediately taught of me . Thank you sis your the best I love them as well they bring also that settle pop of color I wanted in this space.




The bench !! umm do you remember the black and white stripe bench I had well this is it with a new more settle look I still wanted to have a bit of print and fun and I found this amazing curtains at Kohls  a few years back and I had them in storage since I didn't know where to put them so I found a great way to use them by making once of the panel my new bench fabric {the fabric is a a thick durable fabric is also water resistant }.




I stared with wanting this Caitlin Wilson pillows but I as surprise to found out that they discontinue them so after searching high and low with no luck my mum came to the rescue with 4 yards of this beautiful fabric that honestly didn't have a name on she got it from a discount fabric store so I asked her if she count possibly make me some pillows out of them and she happily agreed and made me 2 pillows and my sister the other two . Thank you mum I love my pillows !!




 The pink pillow I found at HomeGoods .







So I hope you like the new change I surely do and everyone in our home does as well .
Until next time =)
