Home Inspiration: Taming My Office Trouble Spots With TJ Maxx

Mail Center Before & After

When TJ Maxx got in touch and asked if I’d like to be part of their Spring Organization Challenge, I jumped at the chance. The mission: pick out a few items from the TJ Maxx/Marshalls home goods section to help organize a messy spot in my own home. There was no question in my mind which spot I was going to organize, because I was already sitting in it when I got the email: my office. Thanks to that whole “selling all my possessions before I moved” thing, my house doesn’t have too many clutter or disorganization issues right now, but all the issues I do have are confined to my office. I’m really bad with paperwork, files, and mail especially, and since I just close my office door at the end of every day, it’s been easy to put off figuring out how to organize everything.

I don’t want to jinx anything, but Nick and I miiiiiiiight be buying a house soon. Like, really soon. The house in question is a super cute ’50s cottage in Nashville. It’s pretty perfect, although the kitchen needs some updates, which is why all of a sudden “kitchen makeovers” and “cool kitchen renovations” have become my internet porn of choice (and if there’s a sudden influx of home design content on The Frisky, well, now you know why). Here are 15 kitchens of wildly different styles and budgets that are currently making me drool. Turquoise cabinets, come to mama!

Nesting: 10 Lovely Lanterns For Under $20

There is something mystical about lanterns. Their intricate details and soft glowing lights remind me of fairy tales and exotic adventures, and they enhance any indoor and outdoor spaces better than pricey scented candles. So why isn’t every bookshelf, mantel, and side table decorated with a lantern? No idea. Let’s fix that. Here a variety of lovely lantern options for under $20.

Home Inspiration: Pretty Tea Cups

Sipping tea from a proper tea cup always feels so relaxing, cozy, and a little glamorous (even though I’m usually wearing my boyfriend’s basketball shorts and watching trashy reality shows during my “tea time”). A pretty cup and saucer not only encourage you to take your tea time a bit more seriously (pinkies up, ladies!), but they look so lovely displayed on the counter when not in use that they truly become part of your home decor. Win-win, I say! Click through to check out 10 beautiful specimens…
