What I'm Loving Now: Storage In White

[Photo credit: Chez Larsson]

Some of you may recall my post on Benita Larsson and her practice of buying everyday supplies in white. Today, I thought we'd explore this idea with storage.

Below, I've culled some white storage pieces that would work in almost any room of your home. My faves are CB2's lacquered Osaka boxes - great for stashing jewelry or even the remotes! I also love IKEA's Asker containers which can be wall-mounted to save kitchen-counter or even craft-table space.

Top (l. to r.): Drawer chest, Container Store; Osaka boxes, CB2; Wire storage cubes, WalMart.
Middle (l. to r.): Drawer organizer, Bed Bath and Beyond; Asker container, IKEA; Flyt magazine file, IKEA.
Bottom: (l. to r.): Clearview bins, Bed Bath and Beyond; Kassett boxes, IKEA; Elfa In/Out basket, Container Store.

Using a monochromatic scheme instantly streamlines your storage and creates a cohesive look. It also makes purchasing additional containers or swapping storage between rooms a snap. Of course, you can use any other color, the important thing is to be consistent and it will look great!

Have a wonderful weekend!
