How to organise a teen girl’s dressing table with make up storage find tidying and organising strangely therapeutic.

I’ve recently organised my workspace and my son’s bedroom.

I’ve also given my teen daughter’s bedroom a touch of paint and a revamp, but have not tackled her dressing table drawers, until now. Although she is perfectly happy with her organised mess, I just couldn’t help myself.

It’s great that I have a huge collection of Curver Infinity boxes to use. So, one weekend I set off to work. There’s a shelving unit at the end of her bed, which she part uses as a dressing table. I’ve given the area a little brightening up with some wall prints. I’ve also added a super cute machine washable rug gifted to me by Lorena Canals. The rug is one of the collaborations they did with Joy Cho of Oh Joy. I absolutely adore the colour palette and it feels so soft to walk on. dressing table make up storage The Curver Infinity cups are so useful for storing lipsticks and make up brushes. Such a simple solution to keep the dressing table area tidy. Next, I tackled the drawers. I was quite ruthless with the edit. Out of date make up or unused ones were removed ( obviously with approval).  The Curver Infinity boxes were perfect for organising the boxes of make up palettes.  I placed the smaller items in the narrower Curver Infinity boxes. dressing-table-decor It took me an hour to tidy her dressing table, and she absolutely loves it. She just needs to promise to keep it tidy. What would I do without my Curver boxes?  They are so handy to have and makes my space instantly tidy.

You may have recently seen this, my newly decorated work studio.

If you look close enough, you will notice that I don’t have much storage.

The messy piles of papers and props that usually crowd this room, has just relocated to the hallway. In other words, the problematic mess is still there.

Now that this room has been redecorated, I can now focus on home storage. I needed something that was accessible, stylish, but mobile.

Why mobile you may ask? Well, I use my studio often as a styling space, so I need to be able to move things around easily. home storage ideas Some of you may have seen me using Curver home storage for my wardrobe, kitchen and fridge  makeovers in the past. I really do love the functional simplicity and minimalist aesthetic of Curver products.

So it’s probably no surprise, that I’ve decided to use their Curver storage again for my work studio. I usually have a lot of paperwork. This could be invoices, bills, contracts, expenses and tax related documents.

I used to keep everything in a folder, but that folder was soon bursting at the seams. I’ve now organised all my paperwork into separate Curver Infinity drawers, each with special labels created for me by Nutmeg Wall Art. It’s really made my life easier, especially when doing my tax returns.There’s no more last minute searching for documents and receipts. Here’s a closer peek inside one of the drawers. I’ve also used curver dividers to organise my stationery. home storage with Curver As I do a lot of styling work, I have a huge collection of props. They normally look quite messy on the shelves.

I decided to categorise and group them into large Curver Infinity boxes. Again thanks to Nutmeg wall art for creating these beautiful labels for my storage. home storage Now I have boxes for art supplies, tester paint pots, china props, metal props and the list goes on. Here’s what it looks like inside one of the storage boxes. Doesn’t it just look so neat? So easy to move around too. Here’s what the boxes look like without labels. The larger Curver Infinity boxes on the floor are used to house my art prints and frames.

I’m so happy with my Curver storage boxes. It really has helped my home feel less cluttered.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Stay tuned as I’ll be back with some exciting travel posts soon. Have a lovely day.

fridge organisation Fridge organisation made easy with Curver Smart Fresh containers.

I’ve just returned from a busy trip to Milan for Salone Del Mobile and Milan Design week. It was back to back meetings and lots of late night dinners with bubbly.

So, how should I unwind from my sleep deprived week, when back in London?

Of course I had to embark on the mammoth task of decluttering and cleaning my fridge.

Before you certify me crazy for this fridge organisation, I have to tell you that cleaning the fridge is actually strangely therapeutic.

Okay, some of you may be shaking your heads now in disbelief, but the task was actually made easier with my new Curver Smart Fresh food containers.

fridge organisation As you can see, I have given my fridge a good wipe down and threw out any out of date food.

It’s amazing how things accumulate in the back of the fridge when you are too busy to organise, don’t you think?

What I need, is to be able to open my fridge and just know what I have. What I love about the Curver Smart Fresh containers are that they are transparent , so I can do a quick visual sweep on opening and know exactly what I have, and what I can prepare. fridge oraganisation In fact, I’m a bit embarrassed to say this, but I have never seen my fridge look so organised before.

The Smart Fresh containers seal very well too, with their click shut latches, to keep everything fresh and crispy. I do have a fridge drawer for keeping fruit and vegetables fresh, but I really do prefer this container method.

There’s no more pushing a carrot to the side, past a soggy bag of Coriander, whilst in search for that half cut, but now wilted cucumber, deep inside the fridge drawer.

There is so much room in these Curver containers. Look at how many strawberries I’ve managed to pack in.

Cleaning is so much easier too. Just place the containers in the dishwasher and it’s all done. Meats and vegetables can be kept separately too. The tight click latches keep cross contamination at bay.

Who enjoys a midnight snack?

I’ve always seen on American TV, that sandwich making in the middle of the night is a routine ritual, for when one can’t sleep. Do you know what I mean?

I would often see them retrieve their sandwich making ingredients, all stored beautifully in air tight boxes.

I’m so happy I can do the same now. As you can tell, sad but true, it doesn’t take a lot to please me. Have you heard of the Home sort sisters on Instagram? They are amazing, and spend most of their time sorting and organising people’s home.

Anyway, I loved the way they label everything with beautiful writing. They were going to make me some labels but it was too difficult as they were so far away, so I enlisted the help of my fellow Brit and instagram friend, Adele from nutmeg studios to make me some.

To be honest, you don’t really need stickers for containers like these Curver Smart Fresh ones, as you can instantly see what is in them.

It was just, me being me, wanting to experiment on making my fridge even prettier.

They look great don’t they?

Oh and  before you say, where is the meat in my fridge, I have a lower shelf for that. It’s just not very pretty to photograph. Hope you’ve enjoyed the post. These Curver Smart Fresh containers are truly amazing. I’m so happy with my fridge now, that I want to show it to everyone.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
