An Office Do-Over

Making Music with an Accordion Calendar

Something about this time of year makes us want to be highly organized and despite all our valiant efforts, we still scramble at the last minute to get things done.  Inspired by this post on The English Organizer, we reached out to the lovely Pauline to see what she could do to help us scratch at least one thing off our to-do list by the end of the year: to create an office environment that speaks to our high-end florals and clientele.

Pauline started out as Struggling To Be Stylish but given that we think she’s pretty darn stylish (her posts on her kitchen remodel and her master bedroom makeover will attest to that!), we were thrilled to read that she’s started down a new path as a Professional Organizer.  Needless to say, we grew up with a very efficient (and pretty scary!) English governess so when we had the chance to work with this British expat, we jumped at the chance.  Without further ado, here’s our office before…

OK, so technically the picture above is a mood board but we love all of Pauline’s suggestions.  She even took into account that our first retail client was Bergdorf Goodman in the city and stuck to a purple theme.
