How to have Simple, Stylish & Smart Storage

Organising and de-cluttering my home is something I am constantly doing no matter what day of the week it is! And if you have kids, you will understand exactly what I'm talking about! Have you ever wondered how you can get rid off all your cushions, throws, pillows in 5 mins and make your room look neat and tidy without having to expend all your energy all day?

Today, I am sharing with you simple and smart ways to revamp ordinary organisation into stylish and practical solutions.

There are lots of storage solutions out there and you can pick from a range of plastic tubs to fabric sacks to metallic bins, but when it comes to organising and needing a quick clean up at my home, baskets are my absolute go to storage solutions.

Especially, wicker baskets that are so ingenious in the way they have been designed.

This year they are in vogue as storage solutions for your bedroom, study and living spaces.

They add a country style charm and rustic simplicity to your home.

They are pretty patterned and textured storage for newspapers, blankets, throws, cushions and more.

Tips

Fold your linen or bedsheets and simply stack them one on top of other in them, its that simple!

An instant and effortless way to store your pillows or cushions in plain sight in your bedroom or living and still add that elegant and shabby chic feel!

If you are too tired you can simply stack all your throws and linens even without having to fold them, just like I have done!

Hampers are also an excellent choice when seeking boxed style storage and are the perfect way to literally throw your cushions and pillows and make it look like a beautiful mess instead! They have those earthy textures that blend in so easily with your bedroom or living decor.

A wicker basket at the moment is by far my favourite due to its functionality and flexible style of storage for summer décor. ​I have been eyeing one of those really large wicker baskets at Pottery Barn that I absolutely adore, probably will fetch one of those for my living room soon so I can stack up all my cushions!

Of course I have to finish off with a white basket - La Villa Blanche's style!

My shortlisted finds that vary in terms of their pricing as well as styles and design (You can even order them online) -

1. Pottery Barn's - Beachcomber Oversized Rectangular Basket

2. Freedom's - Masara Large Basket

3. Adairs - Riviera White and Natural Basket

4. West Elm's - Braided French Laundry Basket

5. Great Ocean Road's - Amalfi Basket

6. Wayfair's - Theroux Tall Water Hyacinth Wicker Basket with Handles 7. Provincial Home & Living - Kubu linen Hamper

Hope you've loved these smart storage baskets, I've put together for you.

Grab one for yourself the next time you want to make your living space or bedroom stylish and elegant.
