    Your posts about organizing are so helpful. I need to get the ottoman in cream for my living area to store blankets (if it ever gets cold enough to need them down here in SW Georgia!

  3. Going to get that ottoman. Thanks, I love it!

    I was looking for a place to store my blankets and the ottoman is perfect for that! The design and color is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great suggestions! I am rethinking my storage options now and will be taking a good look at our priorities in what we store where. Our house is small and space is limited. Thanks for this post!

  6. Great ideas! I just purchased a similar ottoman and love it. Initially thought what would I ever store🤣. I love that extra space. We are downsizing hopefully this year. I may not have room for my very loved breakfront. I have the country french furniture from Ethan Allen that I bought 35 years ago. Hubby reminded me that if I take off the glass unit on top I might be able to incorporate the console piece. What would I do with that upper piece… any thoughts?

    We have a particular twin home development we are watching when one comes in the market. I know they don’t have a lot of full walls other than in bedrooms. I am trying to embrace this change knowing that letting go will be difficult. I also have the server piece that I love with great storage. Hoping I will be able to use that and my table.

    Thanks again for the great storage tips. It is a great help thinking forward on this downsizing journey.

    1. First, good luck on your next stage. Despite the challenges, it’s always fun to embark on a fresh start. It’s hard to say what you might do with the piece without seeing your new place, but you may be surprised that it could possibly fit. Perhaps in a spare bedroom? Keep an open mind. A breakfront does not have to be in the dining room. It can be a great place to store linens… 🙂

      1. Thanks…good idea! It is such a beautiful piece. I love my home…it’s been a 35 year journey. But I have to saw I am feeling excited about the next chapter.

  7. Great organizing and storage ideas! I am going to have to implement some of these in my home. Can you share what brand name or where you purchased the cute white ceramic pitcher that is displayed on the white ottomon? I love the white beading detail on the pitcher!

    1. Ah, I wish I could find the exact one to link. I think it was from Home Goods a few years ago, but I haven’t seen it anywhere online since. I love the bead detail too… 🙂 I always try to link similar pitchers but have yet to find the exact one.
