A calm, clean and organized home can do wonders on your mental state. Everything is easier when you can find it. Creating a space that is organized can help everyone stay calm.
Since many of us are home now this is a great time to utilize freed up time to organize our homes. All of these are Amazon home organization finds so that you don’t need to leave to grab them and they arrive quickly.
I’ve broken it down by different spaces. Start with something small- under the sink or a drawer. It helps to feel less overwhelming.
When organizing- take out everything from the space first. Then you can sort like objects and use the organizers to keep like items together.
I also LOVE using these labels. These are not Amazon, but worth it. They make the organization easy to keep up with.

We are on a mission to keep a calm, clean and organized house this year. I’ve partnered with Wayfair to share some living room storage solutions to help keep this high traffic area of any home clutter free and functional.
Our living room is where we spend a lot of time, but it was becoming a catch all for toys, blankets and various items everywhere. To parallel our mission to organize our home we’ve added storage solutions to keep everything clean and tidy.
LIVING ROOM STORAGE SOLUTIONS
Storage Baskets – Oversized baskets are perfect to toss in blankets and throw pillows. Mix and match different sizes and materials to add lots of texture into the space.
A Log Rack– Function meets design for this one. The oversized look holds a lot of firewood and makes a design statement as well.
Rattan Trays- Rectangle Option & Round Option These are great to add on to your coffee table or ottoman to collect remote controls, candles, matches, etc.
Accent Chests – This one has a lot of interior storage where we keep toys and even diapers. If you have a large living area you could even do a full size Sideboard/Dresser Option . Another great thing about adding a larger piece like this is the space to create a styled vignette on top of the chest. You can add coffee table books, candles, art, decorative bowls etc.
Decorative Bowls – This is a concrete option that adds a great texture to any space, but also provides storage for small items.
Wayfair has TONS of storage options and many are at very affordable price points. You can check them all out HERE.
Holiday decorations really give that magical feel and look to your home. However, I’m still not a huge fan of anything with crazy colors or “character” like. You can easily pull of a neutral holiday decor theme and still have a cozy and festival feel.
This year we kept it simple with lots of texture. I kept grey and ivory tones mixed in with emerald greens and a bit of a “reindeer” theme with the pillow covers and gift wrap. An easy way to add in interest is by faux fur. (Shown here in throw blankets and on the stockings.)
You can find these pre-lit smaller (4 foot) trees for under $25 HERE. They are perfect to layer throughout the house, and really great for a kid room.
The Russian Reclaimed Wood Plank Table at Restoration Hardware is one of my current favorites. It mixes modern and rustic perfectly, but has a $3,195 price tag along with it. This dining table looks so similar and is about 1/3 of the price!
On the website they often style this plank rectangular type of table with a fabric armchair. This looks is great because it is comfortable to use and looks great as well. The RH version varies in price from $500 to almost $900 depending on your choice of fabric. This option HERE comes in both grey and natural linen for 1/4 of the price. There is also a more rounded bucket style option that is also significantly less than it’s RH counterpart. You can shop that one HERE.
This was styled in store with the RH Atwell Linear Light Fixture. The simplicity looks great with the clean lines of this table. The lighting fixture runs around $2,000. You can shop a nearly identical dupe for $300, HERE.
The chunky jute rug shown on RH in this space runs about 3k. You can find a look alike HERE and even an oversized 10×14 is under $400.
I have several RH picture lights and they are great quality. The price point is around $300, but there is one half that price HERE.
These dining chairs are very inviting and cozy so I love how they have added throw pillows and even blankets to the back of the chairs. It really adds so much interest with the layering and textures, but even more so makes it cozy. This throw pillow looks identical to the RH version for 1/8 of the price!
** You can find lots of other RH dupes in a full round up post, HERE! **
Sourcing home decor items is so fun for me so I thought I’d share some of my recent finds that are great staple pieces. When looking for home decor items in a neutral palette stick with pieces that have some texture, a print, or in a great fabric. You can then easily mix and match all of your pieces. When you get bored with one, simply switch it to a different room or vignette.
When items are neutral, it is easier to pull off a very high end feel at an affordable price point.
I’ve also got a post with furniture items that have the look and feel of Restoration Hardware, but are budget friendly, HERE.
Candle, Candle Holders & Candle Accessories
Vases & Planters
Baskets, Bins & Storage
Decorative Bowls & Trays
Wall Art & Picture Frames

When it comes to kitchen decor, keep an eye out for pieces that are both design driven and functional. With an all white kitchen, it’s great to add in lots of variations of texture and materials.
I’ve rounded up all of our favorite pieces that help to keep the kitchen bright and airy, but also add some interest.
One of my favorite pieces in our home is our kitchen light fixture. You can find it HERE and HERE. Another one of our “big ticket” items were the barstools. We went with these because they are super easy to wipe down with kids. No worrying about stains. You can find them HERE.
The rest of the decor items are extremely affordable.
Here are also some of the best kitchen gadgets and appliance that are too pretty to even put away.
Georgie had a lot of his own ideas when it came to his “big boy” room renovation. He requested a “dinosaur theme” and blue walls. I am not a fan of anything “charecter-ish” and prefer a neutral color scheme. However, I wanted G to LOVE his new room and be proud of it.
It’s not quite finished, but I just couldn’t wait to share! We are waiting for this grey swiss cross rug to come in yet. It’s an indoor/outdoor rug which seems to hold up better for kids rooms.
I saw a similar picture in a Restoration Hardware catalog and ran with it. I knew it wouldn’t be possible to buy the entire room from RH because it would be super pricey. I purchased a few of the items from RH and then found lots of dupes!
When going with a theme room I suggest keeping the majority of the big items in a neutral palette. Then add “touches” of decor that have that theme. Kids outgrow what they are into very quickly, and this way you can keep the majority of the room and swap out detail decor items with whatever their new favorite thing is.
The bedding, dinosaur head, display book shelves and giant letters are all from RH Baby & Child. I was sure to link tons of dupes for these items as well that are at a much lower price point.
This dresser and headboard look nearly identical to the RH version. They are at an amazing price point!! I was super impressed. Note, you do have to build the dresser. (AKA Trey had to build the dresser..)
The fringe chandelier makes such a statement and is a really cool piece! It looks much more high end than it is. (It was under $300.)
Instead of using a typical nightstand we replaced it with a faux leather poof. This is a great option for kids that are switching to a “big bed” for the first time. If they happen to fall off it is a much safer option. This one works great because it has a flat top. You can easily put a tray on top to hold a cup of water or anything needed by the bed. (These are still on backorder as well, but I will update with new pics when these and the rug come in!)
Using mixed textures and mixed prints in a similar color scheme is my favorite way to decorate. The wallpaper was the perfect way to add a really interesting texture throughout the entire space. It almost looks like denim on the walls. I couldn’t be any happier with the way it turned out! It’s fairly affordable as far as wallpaper goes.
The line “it’s all in the details” is really true. The small little touches are what makes a space exciting and visually appeasing as well. One of my favorites were these tiny dinosaur footprints crawling up the wall. Georgie just thinks they are the greatest thing! (That’s what it’s really all about, right?!)
We are so happy with the way G’s dinosaur themed bedroom came out! He loves it, and I was able to keep it looking neutral. All is happy!
During the holiday break I was doing an evaluation of the blog, and reached out on Instastories on how I could be more of a resource. The most common answer was more budget conscious options.
I LOVE Restoration Hardware and treasure our furniture items we have purchased from there. I do NOT LOVE the price tag attached. It got me thinking and I’ve been on a mission to find items that had a similar look for less.
While on that hunt, I found SO many Restoration Hardware look alike items for less, and so many are almost exact dupes. FOR. SO. MUCH. LESS.
I’ll be adding to this post as I find more, so check back. Also, if there is an item you love from RH and you do not see it on this list, please comment below, and I will try to find it for you.
