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.
“This set of rope storage trunks can be used for hiding away toys or keeping magazines. Stack them up to make a stylish feature.”
“These are the best jewellery trays around. Choose from a range of different depths and configurations to suit your collection, then stack them in your drawers. If you can see your jewellery, you’re much more likely to wear it.”
“One of the best things you can do for your wardrobe is to keep clothes beautifully pressed. Plug a steamer near your closet and iron pieces before you hang them back up. Steamery’s hand-held number is both easy to use and stylish.”
“If you like to take off your jewellery as soon as you come in the door, then you need this delicate glass box on your hallway table – simply place pieces inside as you remove them. The little compartments will mean everything has its place.”
“This set of six interconnected pouches is the perfect size for keeping fiddly bits in one place. Use for tickets and passports when travelling, or keys and treats on the school run.”
“This was one of my best buys of last year – it’s great for keeping all those little kitchen bits (sauce bottles, spice pots, kids snacks) organised. Put it in a cupboard or fridge and spin!”
“I use these clever organisers to keep my daughters’ art cupboard in check. Stock up on a few, then theme them by play session – I have one for colouring in, beading, painting and glitter.”
“Wire baskets are a chic and inexpensive storage solution. Use them in the office to hold stationery, or at home to keep toys tidy. Grouping toys by colour will make things look extra neat.”
“Just because storage is out of sight doesn’t mean it shouldn’t look good. This seagrass basket is perfect for under-bed areas.”
