  • Laura’s Guide To Organisation

    It might not come as a surprise that Laura is somewhat of an expert when it comes to organisation. Her desk at Wardrobe ICONS HQ is a masterclass in harmonious order, while her home is a haven of storage solutions where everything has its place. ‘Tidy house, tidy mind’ is Laura’s motto, and it’s the perfect sentiment to take into January. Which is why she’s sharing her little black book of clever buys, tips and tricks to help you get your new year ducks in a row. Then we can all enjoy a positively zen 2020.
