Blissful Organization & A Peaceful Life

Let it be known, I am a lover of peace. I love finding solutions to everyday problems that will make my life more peaceful. And that's pretty much the root of interior design...problem solving! 

 Obviously not every issue in life has a quick and easy solution. And I'm not a neat freak. Sometimes life gets in the way of my dream of ultimate organization. But in a home, there are often quick solutions that make life a little more about living and a little less about stressing

And of course it helps if the solution is pretty, right? 
So in honor of blissful organization, enjoy these dreamy photos with me!

Excuse me while I catch my BREATH for a minute...I'm sorry, silhouette basket labels!?!? Those floors?!? Dying. And furthermore, you know my love for mudrooms.

{There's even free printables of those amazing labels!}

Leave it to Martha Stewart to have the prettiest, most organized drawers and cupboards known to mankind. 

I can totally picture myself slamming that drawer shut and having everything fly out of those precious little bowls. But I bet Martha has a solution to make sure that doesn't happen, right? :)

Happy Tuesday!

I'm SO with you! I love that feeling of peace you get when everything is in its place and you aren't staring at piles of clutter.

I love the mudroom! Putting in a dog shower is such a great idea... that's going in my ideal mudroom folder!! Also, that pantry looks gorgeous with the cute labels. I think I need to get my organizing pants on!

Oh I would definitely have things flying out of those bowls. I'd open the drawer one day to find things everywhere and it would stay that way forever

Hey lady!

Ok, so I am one of those people who follow your blog, but I never comment. :) Love me anyway! I promise I read, and i actually enjoy! Mucho.

So here is my question: do I have your permission to "pin" your blog posts on pinterest? Is that cool?

Keep at this, Courtney. You've got a real knack for it. You write well (seems like you are just talking to us), and you have great style. When I read your blog, I feel like ten years from now I'm going to be saying "Oh, Courney! I totally read her back in the day when she was a student!" :)
