there’s no need to get all hung up about your storage dilemmas when the answer is quite literally, right in front of you. i am all about storing some of my signature wares in plain sight, and i even like the look – a lot! what others might consider eyesores, i consider putting just a bit of your personality and personal style on display. i hang all my favorite mesh and rattan shopping totes, for instance, and not only are they at the ready, i think they look rather swell. so if you’re short on storage space, you might consider going vertical, and hanging your favorite bits and bobs right out in front of everyone! there are so many creative looking hooks, pegs and racks of all kinds nowadays, the possibilities are endless — from vintage finds to DIY tree branches, the idea is to keep your options open. here are a few ideas to get you started, and out of the closet!

warm minimalism with daphne javitch.

minimalist nyc home of Daphne Javitch. / sfgirlbybay

Fashion entrepreneur turned wellness expert Daphne Javitch’s Lower East Side apartment so beautifully represents her healthful approach to style that you’d never guess that the sanctuary exists situated in the middle of one of New York’s busiest neighborhoods. With abounding natural light, a minimal eye for decor, and a few extra cozy touches (those warm leather chairs look so inviting, right?!), the home comes off as welcoming yet pared-down. A custom wrap-around sofa, hand-crafted by Daphne’s husband, Pali Xisto Cornelsen, is the perfect example of lived-in ethos meets tranquil design.

“We’re both in touch with our mental/physical/emotional health, and so much of that is rooted and nurtured at home. We wanted a warm but minimal place, almost beachy,” Daphne recently told Remodelista. I’m addicted to the soothing vibe and can’t get enough of the strategically placed pops of rainbow that appear throughout the space (yay for colorful bookshelves — the true mark of a well-rounded reader — and the fun shift-dress that hangs in the couples calm bedroom).

Keep scrolling for a peek into somewhere I’d love to spend this week!
