Thanks for posting! Charlotte, you have great instincts to go with monochromatic organization — I completely agree!
What I would do first is take everything off the shelves and go through it. Get rid of what you don’t need, because I’m sure you don’t need every thing on there! Once you’ve decluttered and gone through everything, it will be easier to see the themes that you can organize things by.
The white paper boxes we used in Daisy’s Lair in the office are great for organization. They come in smaller and larger sizes and can be labeled, which is so helpful! I would recommend using a mix of those, and maybe some magazine holders for papers depending on your needs, to get the majority of things organized and away!
Then you can have a little fun with some decorative accents or more fun organizational items! Check out the desk we set up for Eman for inspiration on how to bring some beautiful items in for storage!
