Teen Bedroom Makeover

We all love a good before and after post! Here are a few fun pictures from a recent makeover. This is a teen’s girls bedroom. Our clients recently moved from Florida which is always hard on teenage children so they wanted to create a special room for her! She loves to do art, loved the idea of lights around her room, and wanted to make her bedroom feel more grown up. We collected branches from the forest, washed them and sprayed them. We then suspended them from the ceiling and wove lights throughout.  We removed the large bed frame, moved

Oversized Kitchen Seating? Yes, Please!

One of our clients recently moved into a lovely condo but it was impossible to fit all of her oversized furniture in the smaller living room. There is a kitchen eating area but she has no plans to buy a dinette set since she has a dining room right outside the kitchen. So where can we put an extra comfy chair? In the kitchen, of course! A great little spot to have coffee and read the paper… or catch up on Instagram. BEFORE AFTER

A Little Vintage Decor

Vintage things are all the rage these days. Designer stores like Anthropology make old things look so cool! But do you feel like that when you try the things just look, well, old? Here are some clever ideas that you can try out for yourself and put together yourself to get you started on your own vintage wonderland. Old suitcases (doesn’t matter if they are broken!) turned into a side table. Get old toys and some wood and spray paint it all one color for some fun and playful bookends.  Get old tennis rackets and some oval mirrors cut to

Shelf Displays in Your Home

Shelving can be a huge bonus in a room but it can also be quite tricky. If you have shelving that you don’t know what to do with, check out these visuals for some inspiration! Books can go any which way…   2. Lean some framed pictures (or records) in there instead of hanging them!     3. Add something living! Like fish or plants…   4. Use shelves for something other than what you might expect…   5. Group collections or shapes or colors together for a nice visual punch.   6. And don’t be afraid to leave blank

3 Steps To A Visual Punch

Organizing can make your space neat and clean but it can also make it beautiful. Sometimes our clients think that by organizing a space, you make it less interesting or personal. But organized spaces don’t have to be sterile! If you have a bunch of one thing, i.e. a collection, you can still be organized.   We often see collections or multiples of something spread all around the house. In doing this, they lose impact and things look cluttered. Don’t do it.  Instead, gather your collection or multiples and group them together in an area that can showcase the repetition and color blocking

A New Use for Towel Bars

Does your space have limited storage but a good amount of wall space? Or maybe your bathroom has an unusually large number of towel bars? Or maybe you’re just going to love this look and have to include it somewhere…   We saw these baskets hooked onto towel bars and loved it! Its a simple and beautiful way to get more storage space. It would be a fantastic way to divide up bathroom things for kids, roommates, or guests. If your basket contents are private or messy, get a basket with a lid (found a surprising number of places). And

For the Love of Golf

Being organizers, some people think we are just against keeping things. That isn’t true! You can keep and display collectables or keepsakes in some amazing visual ways. HauteMove recently helped some golf loving clients figure out what to do with their logo golf balls they collected from each course they have played.  How do you display these?  We came up with this idea and the clients actually built it themselves.  We love how it turned out!   “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” — Francis of Assisi

How to Do Christmas

This might seem like a silly topic but lets face it, Christmas and post-Christmas can be the turning point form organized to chaos. So lets cover a few simple things that can help manage the chaos. Get large black trash bags ready to go. Dedicate someone as the trash picker-upper (preferably giving a job to a little one who can make it fun) and collect as you unwrap. Just like a wedding shower or baby shower, get a pad of paper and write down gifts and givers. The out of state gifts that were sent as well as the gifts
