The Adventure Starts Here: An Organized Hall

An Organized Hall

Our new house has a circular layout on the main floor.  When you enter the front door, if you turn right you enter the living room.  Walk through there and it's the dining room and the kitchen.  Off the kitchen there is a hallway that will lead you back to the front door.  In this hallway there are many doors... the kitchen closet (or a second pantry), the laundry room, powder room, and garage.  Since this is a hallway that we use a lot, but is not necessarily used much by guests, I decided to use it as a command center to get more organized.  

We already owned the cork board (from Pottery Barn) so we got the dry erase calendar, the letter bin, and office organizer to match.  I love having a space to put mail and papers that need to go out as well.  I also like having our keys all in one space and using the shelf for random things like our sunglasses.  Anything to help keep our kitchen counters clearer.  

I really love how it helps keep us organized but also looks pretty.

  1. I've been thinking about doing this exact same thing in our hallway. Love how your's turned out. I might just make the plunge and do it now!

  2. I wish we had a little area that would be perfect for a command center! Love this idea! Your new house is really coming together!

  3. We have a magnet board like your bulletin board and it's my favorite! I seriously want to fill my hallways up with them, ha!

  4. oh that is a great spot for it! I love command centers.

  5. I love all of this! I could so use the calendar. Thanks for linking to it!
