One of my most favorite Design Star winners - Emily - got an organization makeover of her home office from IKEA. Pretty dramatic before/after photos. I love how personalized her office is now..not to mention super cute and so organized.
Emily states, "When i was little i used to 'clean' by shoving things under the sofa, in the oven, behind the toilet. Its a really adorable habit that i haven't really grown out of. I don't like too much visible clutter, but i don't really put things away properly - i just shove things inside of other things.
When we moved into our new house I was super excited to have an dedicated office where i can put all the annoying and ugly 'officey' things, but unfortunately it had very little storage and what it did have was unattractive....I spend 4-10 hours a day in my office - it needs to look and feel good and be functional."
Emily seems happy with the results:
"I KNOW WHERE THINGS ARE NOW.
Checkbooks? no big deal, i got you. Receipts from 2012? 3rd shelf from the bottom in the bin called '2012 receipts', naturally...Everyday tools, magazines, spraypaint, ribbon and fabric. Check, check, check, check and check. I know where EVERYTHING is. And i get excited to put things away."
