DETERMINE THE SIZE OF YOUR PROJECT
For this example, I added space to the project so I could add a basket in the middle. The main height of this piece is 30". If you decided not to have an area for a basket, I'd suggest making the height of your three longest pieces around 20" in length. See image 1 for a full view of all the piecesRead More

Situated on the ever-growing east side of Sioux Falls is a new custom home built by Chad and Jill Young of Superior Construction. The 2,900-square-foot home sits on 1.3 acres of land in an established neighborhood. The beautifully constructed ranch home, comprised of 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, is nearly hidden by mature trees. The home’s twin peaks stand out among the lush trees, providing the basis of the color scheme used throughout the home. Brown shake siding, beige trim and grey cement board vertical siding blend seamlessly with the earthy tones of the area. A paved circular drive leads to a covered brick-adorned porch, welcoming you into the craftsman style home.

There are two basic reasons that people decide to organize; 1) building a new home or office, or 2) being fed up with a mess. Regardless of the reason, once the commitment to organizing has been made the next step is deciding if you want to tackle the issue yourself or contact a professional. True professionals have a gift for organizing, which means they visualize and define the most functional and user-friendly ways to accomplish your organizing objective. They listen to your issues and ideas and then offer value-added suggestions that fit your organizing needs and your budget.
When choosing a professional it’s important to know who can provide the best creative options to accomplish your objectives. Believe it or not; all organizing professionals are not the same. It&rsqRead More

Controlling Kid Clutter
If you have kids of any age, you know they come with stuff – LOTS of stuff! From socks to hair pins and Legos, clutter inevitably invades every corner of your home.

Fortunately, there are some solutions to help you deal with all the clutter that accompanies the joys of parenthood.

Organizing a collection of toys can help them show off what they've accumulated, and get them excited about hoRead More
I live in a state of self-induced insanity. Along with being an interior designer, I bake cookies and teach yoga . I run, bike, volunteer, and work hard at what I call my semblance of a makeshift social life. I am home very little, and when I am, my time is spent implementing design ideas in my own house and yard. I don’t sleep much. I thrive on activity and the implementation of ideas. The result of all this? A constant battle to maintain a means of organization, the ramification of which is stress.
In comes technology, saving an area in the organization void with Pinterest, one of the latest social networking sites to take the cyber world by storm. Pinterest is basically this: online filing cabinet - meets worldwide communication tool - meets custom-edited version of Google. OrRead More

As more people choose to stay in their current homes longer, Americans are diving into large remodel projects. Forty percent of homeowners plan to remodel or build an addition to their existing home within the next two years, with kitchen and bathroom projects remaining the most popular remodeling jobs, according to the 2013 Houzz and Home Survey.
