Yes, our office is also the one area of the house I can never declutter. It doesn't help that it's my husband's favorite room (he's a packrat).

Well, many, many things LOL. I think the biggest thing that has helped me is make sure everything has a home, and putting it away when I am done with it rather than leave it for later. Also, having functional storage solutions. Like my ottoman which is also a storage chest.

3. I love the reading corner!!
My dd LOVES the reading corner. It's so cute. I always find her in there reading.

Your home would look fantastic with light but warm paint on the wall. You have a lot of creative furnishings to draw inspiration from.

That is a great idea, thank you!

One question: where do you store office-type stuff like paper and your computer? That's probably the worst area of my home right now.
I guess you can't see my desk in any of those pictures! It's in the living room right next to the door to the porch, in front of a window. I also have a filing cabinent used for work mostly, which usually lives in the closet but is in the living room right now since the closet has been overtaken by holiday presents.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!
