Easter Basket Time

Square Baskets

Square Storage Baskets at Glam Vintage & Moderne

Baskets have always been on trend but never more than in today’s “uncluttered” household.  In our new open concept environments we often don’t have smaller rooms like a laundry room where “stuff” may  be secreted away behind closed doors.

Without baskets where would you hide your dirty laundry, 20 lb bags of dogfood, umbrellas and clean recyclables?  Where would one put  “all your eggs”?

Drawers don’t cut it for these odd shapes but baskets come in any size and may even have lids which are handy  for stacking and hiding junk you can’t part with. I often slide low sided baskets into open doorless shelving to keep my unsightlys unseen.

The Glam Inventory Police

His Walk In ClosetSince most of us must function in smaller spaces and cannot just buy more space in which to put stuff…we are forced to edit stuff.   My partner suggested that every time I buy new clothing I should get rid of something instead of hungrily eyeing his wardrobe space.  This is a preposterous concept when it comes to clothing but I can see its validity as it pertains to decor.

Old lady in her houseStuffing ones house full of furniture, art and sentimental oddities can make your house look like the proverbial old lady’s lair.  This is a great time of year to stand back and try to objectively asess your place.

Ask yourself these questions:   What’s important?  What’s useless but makes the room work?  What needs updating?  What would make the space flow better? What’s truly useless and ugly (dare I say clutter)?

Even if you can answer these questions objectively, do you know how to update the look within budget?  Before you spend more money call in a truly discerning and experienced observer.  Richard from Glam Vintage & Moderne will give you the honest answer and make you look forward to the trip.

Make “Storage” Beautiful

Storage Bench in Faux Leather with Tufting

We’ve all had friends or neighbours come to the door unexpectedly.  You see them just as they approach your front steps.  Turning around you see his sweatshirt and runners on the floor, 12 dogs toys and  the Sunday paper everywhere.

This bench is the answer to easy front entrance maintenance.  It’s only 15 inches deep and easily contains all your messy little secrets.
