organizing with shelves:: weekly product pick

I was looking at the Spring 2012 issue of Storage magazine by Better Homes and Gardens and noticed several spaces that utilized an IKEA shelf.  There was so much I liked about the spaces overall; however, the simple and clean-lined shelving had me searching for product details.  They turned out to be the IKEA Ekby Bjarnum shelves; however, my product pick this week is any IKEA wall shelf with brackets. Adding shelves is such a great way to utilize the wall space for storage–we always love more space!


They are affordable, can be cut to size, and work with any style and in any space. The more, the better!

See how stylish these shelves are in this dream office space? This is what originally captured my attention.

Take a look at the interest modular shelving creates–a great solution for a large wall needing a focal point too!  This adorable wall display is done by Honey & Fitz. Be sure to take a look at how they use their shelves in other spaces too. So cute!



They work beautifully in a small, transformed working niche. This very creative space is from Sarah’s House on HGTV. I enjoy her style, energy, and transformations. (I could not find the shelving info-they may be custom–but you can get the look with IKEA)



These create a very clean and industrial, modern vibe–perfect for displaying items. I love what Freckles Chick has done in her kitchen. Great solution.



Organized and stylized–lovely at re-nest.

simply savvy decorating…old world style

I love clean lines, calming colors, linen fabrics, reflective items, and rustic decorative touches that balance darker wood flooring and furnishings. I find that a room that is layered with a variation in colors/tones, textures, and style has more warmth, dimension, interest, and life.  You can add old world charm to your home by mixing simple accessories; such as, vintage maps, old boxes, or flea-market and antique finds.

I recently attended a Designers event at STASH in Memphis and came across a few decorative items that were rustic, interesting, and vintage in style–adding old world charm to any home.  These items grabbed my attention because my home is a combination of a coastal and english cottage. These add a fun element that is vintage and stylish…


An affordable, yet high impact art addition to a home are vintage maps.  We found beautiful maps of the Caribbean and of England on eBay, adding old world art to our collection of coastal prints. It works with any style, like these:

vintage glam and boxes for extra charm and warmth…




Adding something vintage, antique, or a global decorative touch does not mean you’re going all out Old World style …but it is lovely!



Simply Savvy Tip: If you have decorative objects that are no longer your favorite, try grouping them with other items in your home to give them new life. It may add an eclectic or global touch to your room.


Take a look at the Simply Savvy Pinterest board for more inspiration, credits, ..and just overall pretty pictures.


Group your decorative items and give them new life and some global charm.
