Organization Goals

New Season, New Organization Goals!

Whether its just a desire to freshen your space after a long winter or to declutter after too much hoarding (c’mon #HipNJ, we can all relate!) here are your Spring 2018 tips for an organized home, compliments of Caitlin Rutkay of C.R. Interior Designs:

  • Baskets and bins are your friend. If it can be hidden, do it! Create a simple streamlined look to hide a multitude of messes. These shelves are from Caitlin’s own laundry room.

  • Be ruthless. The pro organizers agree–if its not been worn in a year, donate. Don’t clutter the cubbies with jackets that will never be reached for anyway.
  • Better your lighting. Want an easier routine? Find what you need faster with upgraded lighting in your mud room, laundry or garage.
  • Tough wallcovering decorates and protects. Not an organizational tip, but it covers a pet peeve-dirty knicked walls in high traffic areas. Dense commerical grade vinyls are stylish AND practical. Think the look of wood planks or woven grasspaper but in super durable constructions. As far as your trim and built ins think beyond white for lessening scuffs.

C.R. Interior Designs on Pajama Lounges

Caitlin Rutkay of C.R. Interior Designs asks: What’s more cozy than sectional seating? How about one located in a “pajama lounge!”  

According to, pajama lounges are taking over houses everywhere! If you haven’t heard of a space like this before, it’s essentially an upstairs living room that’s very private and the perfect place to gather as a family after rolling out of bed in your (you guessed it) pajamas.

This concept is part of a growing trend of living spaces moving upstairs, where it’s more secluded. “They’re designed to be a place where the family can gather and hang out away from the high-traffic areas of the home,” Paul Fischman, principal designer at Choeff Levy Fischman in Miami.

Whether pajama room or main living space, sectionals are a staple of family space planning. The common features Caitlin’s clients look for are stain resistant fabric and a frame deep enough for napping.

These images show a custom “L” with detached chair and then a navy hardwearing fabric option for a kids gaming space:

According to, popular types of chandeliers include:

Traditional – They are elegant with a formal style using detailed scrolling and the highest quality materials.

Tiered – Have a light for each tier. Therefore the more tiers this type has the bigger it is. A tiered chandelier can come any any style from contemporary/modern to traditional.

Mini – These light fixtures are a popular choice for the bathroom as their smaller size makes them ideal for an intimate space. Similar to a full size fixture, mini chandeliers are often used in bedrooms and closets to enhance the area and provide a sense of style and elegance.

Crystal – Glamorous is a great way to sum up the look of a crystal chandelier. They can also be expensive if constructed using real crystals. They are eye-catching and dazzling as light reflects off of each crystal. Crystal chandeliers are amazing for creating an aura of romance to a room.

Drum – Featuring one or multiple lampshades, a drum chandelier has a shade that completely surrounds each light or the entire fixture. They are similar in appearance to a pendant light.

Contemporary & Modern – Sleek and stylish are two words that define a contemporary/modern chandelier. With clean lines, straight edges and modern materials these light fixtures can really add your own personal flair to a bathroom space.

Rustic – With a casual style these types of light fixtures often have distressed or burnished finishes. They can even have rustic materials such as branches, tree branches, animal horns and old fashioned sconces and characteristics.

Transitional – A mix of modern and traditional, a transitional chandelier is widely adaptable and can most often fit in with any decor or design style.

No matter your style, you can’t go wrong with incorporating these gorgeous lights into your bathroom remodeling plan!
