Karen can juggle a kitchen remodel, rewire a chandy for a friend, plan a PTA meeting, look like a million bucks at all times and still have her own house in order...with four kiddos. (Cutiedoodle triplets and an awesome almost high schooler!)
Even though Karen designs and decorates beautiful spaces for a living, she will be the first to tell you that FUNCTION trumps pretty. (This could be the influence of her talented engineer hubby!)
While I was shooting pictures for "A Devine House Tour", I snapped a few organizational pictures to share with you. Karen's house is efficient, functional AND purdy!
|Dish soap and cleaner kept in "olive oil" dispensers.|
|Keep your favorite cookbook on a stand.|
|Even the dog food gets a purdy home!|
|A buffet can serve as a drink station.|
|Built in drawers under the window seat- no wasted space.|
|Everything has a place...eliminating clutter.|
|Everyone pitches in! This chalkboard lists each family member's chores.|
|This is the catchall at the basement entry door. Each kiddo has their own cubby.|
|Cubbies- functional. Glass detailing- purdy.|
How do you marry function and purdy in your home?
