Idea to Steal: Hang It Up

Fresh ideas on how to store magazines are always exciting. If you’re anything like us, they tend to pile up very very quickly. Yes, stacking them on the floor or on a chair {with objects and art on top of course} has been the super cool style for like…a year, last year to be exact! We’re loving the fresh idea of making use of all those ugly wire hangers you have lying around.

As you should know by now, they should never be used to actually hang up your clothes, but when placed on an industrial rack, they can neatly and cleanly display all of those magazines that we just can not get rid of!

We’re obsessed with everything about how easy and modern this look is. Feel free to break up the structured vibe by adding your fave blouse or dress, hang up a killer mirror, or add a hanging wire light. Oh, and a hot Lenny Kravitz poster does not hurt. Nope, it does not hurt one bit!

What do you think? Are you as in love with this organization idea as much as we are?! We just need to find space for a clothes rack and we are finally getting those mags off of the floor!

Also, on another note, why is Lenny Kravitz still SO hot? Has this man not aged in two decades?! He just came out with his new album, “Strut”! Have you listened to it yet?? So good.

Joanne Pio is a photographer based out of LA and this girl knows all of the hotspots -not just in LA, but everywhere she goes!

It’s no wonder why Kristen Cesiro’s Instagram account is gorgeous.

Dana Miller, blogger at House Tweaking and mama to three, makes normal life look completely dreamy. She’s deemed her house The Underdog, taking the challenge on of making this once dilapidated house into her dream home. We’d say she’s doing a pretty darn good job too! We love all of the decor updates she shares and seeing pictures of her kids in the space – playing, with real toys! Dana reminds us that Instagram isn’t always about aspirational photos, brunches every weekend and curated top-downs. Love, family and happiness oozes out of this account- follow it!

We’ve Got A Crush On…

While writing this post we realized January is, in some ways, a very obvious transition month and in other ways a not-so-noticeable, stuck-in-between type of month. Yes, it’s exciting, it’s new, goals are set and the playfulness of spring, with it’s inherent energy of “new life,” is just around the corner. Yet, it’s still pretty dull outdoors, skies are gray, the air bitter and we still have this urge to hunker down and cuddle in. Weird, right?! But instead of trying to define it, we’re embracing this push and pull phase! Hints of color and metallics excite us for what’s ahead, while moody vibes and textural layers are keeping us grounded in the moment! Here’s what we’ve got a crush on lately…

And on wise words that remind to dabble in everything that excites us, to try new things, surprise ourselves and to never be so easily defined! Happy Monday, all!
