One of the best things about working from home is that I have the time to enjoy my breakfast with my freshly made Almond milk and delicious Morning Boost tea!  All while catching up on one of my favorite blogs! Spring Clearing, here I come! ...after breakfast that is. #realhousesofthebayarea #skinnymint #freshalmondmilk #engine2plantstrong

Finally took the time to clean up my #courtyardpatio and so happy with how clean it looks. Amazing what a little pruning, fresh black mulch and sweeping up can achieve. #alicetchandesign #myhouse #mygarden #realhousesofthebayarea

Designer Tip: match your floor registers to your flooring. A black floor deserves a black register. A wood floor deserves a matching wood register. These little details make a world of difference and immediately elevates your interior more than you think. Ever see a register that sticks out like a sore thumb? That’s what I’m sayin... #realhousesofthebayarea #designdetails #designdetail #designtip #designtips

If you don’t use gloves to wash dishes, you really should but don’t let them clutter up your kitchen counter. Easy hack is to put removable hooks on the inside of your kitchen sink cabinet door and use binder clips to clip the gloves together and hang them. Easy, inexpensive and efficient!  You can also hang potholders like this. You’re welcome! πŸ€œπŸΌπŸ€›πŸ½πŸ’‘#kitchenhacks #realhousesofthebayarea

How amazing to have this amount this extra space inside the home dedicated to storage. It was an unfinished room that we insulated, added drywall, added lighting and a combination of open shelving and closed cabinet storage. It’s a homeowners dream come true if you ask me... #realhousesofthebayarea #Homeorganization #storageideas

The #storageroom at our #decoratingproject is done. A bank of 4 x 48”W #storagecabinets sit against the long wall then floating shelves across the end. Now that the space is β€œfinished” it’s going to be the most coveted room.  What a blessing!! #realhousesofthebayarea

Many times clients want to decorate their home and when we meet, the first thing I recommend is getting the house organized before we decorate. If we don’t implement good #homeOrganization tools first, the clutter will soon overshadow the pretty decor. Here we are making progress on our client’s #storageroom ... adding insulation, finishing the walls, installing recessed lights then cabinets and shelving. This will be a game changer for the household. The space is bigger than a one car garage! How lucky right?!!! #realhousesofthebayarea .

I don’t think people realize and appreciate how much work it is to tile from floor to ceiling and on all 4 walls at that! especially in a #centuryhome with uneven wall surfaces that all need to be leveled out in advance. #realhousesofthebayarea #projectsjvictorian #subwaytile #smallbathroom #blackandwhitebathroom #construction #tilesetter
