#HipNJ spent a lovely afternoon at the NJPAC Women’s Association Annual Luncheon. An annual favorite, the event is a truly unique experience hosting over 500 prominent and high profile women business leaders and philanthropists from the NJ metro area onstage for lunch on-stage at Prudential Hall.
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.
