A Riot of Color: Spring Cleaning in the K. Household

Hi Ladies,
In honor of spring, I decided to do a little cleaning...not the boring kind, like dusting and mopping, but the fun kind, like organizing my jewelry! I know some bloggers have figured out how to store all of their jewelry in drawers and little boxes, but I've decided to go with the "anti-minimalist" route. I call it "A Riot of Color", which I'm sure I've heard somewhere else, and it falls under the philosophy of "If it's pretty...show it off"!

I bought all of the storage items from Home Goods, Target and Ikea. I hope you have fun decorating and would love to see how you do it!

I also want to send a special shout out to Elba at Live Colorful! She has the best taste in colors and I always find her site inspiring. Check out her post on spring decoration: here!




Cute, Cheap Stuff to Inspire You!


Other Ways to Find Inexpensive Decorations
  • Haute Look: They are an "event" site, so sign up for their emails to be alerted when a brand you like is being featured. Free shipping on orders over $100 and you can return to any Nordstrom Rack.
  • West Elm: Normally pricey, but checkout their sale section for great trays and jewelry boxes.
  • Urban Outfitters: Their home section has really cute stuff that looks like it comes from Anthropologie, but their prices are much better. They often have sales and free shipping over $50!
  • H&M: They now sell home stuff! Great prices and cute stuff.

What Makes You Beautiful?

They say "Beauty comes from within," but then, why are we constantly trying to perfect our outsides? Beauty issues have been making waves on the internet the past few weeks. What makes us beautiful? What is beautiful? Well, those are some pretty heavy questions and perhaps the answer cliche as it is, you know, coming from within... That "within" also encompasses self-care and self love. This week we have some wonderful beauty posts, along with posts that share the love.

  1. I love the way you organized everything! It looks awesome! I love the idea of having everything out in a pretty way - I bet you are a lot more likely to actually use it if you can see it!

    1. Yeah, good point! It is a lot easier to see what you have and grab something now. I used to have everything in boxes and it was easy to not bother wearing jewelry.

  2. Congrats on getting your post chosen for IFB! That is so cool!
    Those Ikea dishes are awesome. Love how you decorated with your jewelry. My only question is how on earth do your cats not see that as their very own playground? Aaaackkk. It is dangly kitty heaven.

    1. You know...i wonder that myself...i think the trick is that the counter is so full that there is no place for them to walk...also my chests are in a corner, so there isn't really any place to go...you'll have to get marcy's take on this :)

  3. Your pin board is beautiful---I don't have room for one in my dorm so I just use push-pins to approximate. I also really like the dish idea for ring storage. If I had more space, I think displaying my jewelry in tea cups would be the way to go!

  14. I subscribe to the Chaos Theory too for jewellery storage. Too pretty to hide away. I have lots of mine on my 50s vintage dresser on a vintage tin tea tray with vintage Kewpie dolls.

    Thanks for joining Wardrobe Wednesday x

  16. I purchased like a huge jewelry armoire last year and it's been mostly great... but since moving to my house it's been a pain to get to because it's in my closet. I'm now trying to find better ways to store (and access) my jewelry but have such limited countertop space! Maybe I'll create a little something in my bedroom.... anyways thanks for inspiration!

    & Thanks for linking up with Lovely Thusdays!

  17. Kim Kardashian certainly isn't the first celebrity to get some work done, but the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' episode did prompt
    a plastic surgeon, Dr. Better and quicker results are more achievable even with difficult noses (due to severe trauma or in asymmetrical faces).

    Vanity is when you have something taken care of because you want
    everyone to notice and look at you.
