I’m always looking for good ideas for home storage. You see, I like stuff – and have quite a lot of it – but I dislike disorganised clutter and I don’t have a great big house.
I’ve come to realise lately that while having places to put things away is vital, having certain things out on display can really add to your home’s character and individuality – not to mention that it’s more convenient to have items you use regularly easily at hand.
So, chuffed was I when Harveys Furniture asked me to contribute some ‘expert’ tips about how I store and display collections around my home. Hop on over to their blog to read all of our ideas – there are some great ones!
Here are my three favourite ways to store things stylishly around my house.
The vintage crate
You might remember I dragged this crate out of my parents’ garage where it had been gathering dust for years. Now it’s the focal point in my favourite corner of my living room, and I use it to store books and magazines I want to keep close at hand.

The open kitchen shelves
A little while after sharing the full tale of our eight-month kitchen renovation, I dedicated a whole post to these shelves! I know, my 20-year-old self would hate me. But I still love the way they make great use of awkward corners, and display my favourite pieces of kitchenalia. This is what one of the shelves looks like just now.
The bedroom tray
This smart, white tray sits on my dressing table and keeps things I use daily – moisturiser, hair products, favourite jewellery, make-up – close at hand without looking cluttered. There’s another tray in my bedroom that I put to work as well – remember that I upcycled a tray to make a jewellery display?
