From My Home To Yours: Acrylic

Over the past couple years, I’ve embraced a new style in my home by incorporating more contemporary elements. Even though meshing the new with the old is challenging at times, overall it’s been it’s been a fun process. Plus, I’m loving the results.

One easy way I’ve found to add a more modern feel is with acrylic furnishings. Because of its new-found popularity, there is a huge array of items in this style. From chairs and tables to accessories like lamps and tape dispensers, you can incorporate acrylics into any room.

I’ve used a console table in my entryway. Because most acrylic furnishings are clear, they don’t take up much visual space, but can still be super functional.

I also recently added a ghost chair to my guest room. Its traditional lines work well in my 1916 home, and the acrylic adds a contemporary air. The perfect combination!

To inspire you to add a bit of this style to your home, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite pieces. I especially love how some of the items are paired with gold and brass!

Organize With This: Acrylic!

Trend:  Acrylic Organizers!

Acrylic organizers are some of my favorite for many different tasks and for many different reasons.  They can be used in endless ways and come in a large variety of options.  Here are some of my favorites!

 

Acrylic drawer organizers do their job of keeping items separate and simple to find, but they also keep drawers looking down right chic and pretty!  I love going the extra mile and adding some pretty liner in the drawer and have it show through the acrylic dividers as well.

 

Acrylic drawer dividers come in endless shapes and sizes, and many even stack to offer up extra storage.  They can be used for anything from office drawers to jewelry sorters and when you don’t need them anymore in one space, they can easily be adapted into another.

 

Where I really love to see acrylic organizers being played with, is at the desk!

Acrylic gives desk spaces both a sophisticated yet playful vibe.  You can find organizers that work for corralling business cards, desk accessories and even stacks of papers, folders and mail.

 

 

Another show stopper is the acrylic tray.  It is so gorgeous and versatile, that you see them being lined with cloth and used as jewelry holders….

Or for corralling accessories on top of a sideboard cabinet, a dresser, coffee table, and yet again, at the workspace.

Acrylic organizers are really wonderful for organizing beauty products, since there are some of us who may like to have a few options on hand, the clear organizers help find everything quick and easy when dolling up.

Or even for those looking to take their makeup goodies on the go!

The portable caddy would also look incredible center of the table with some cutlery, or on a desk with pens, pencils and a pad a paper.  I personally love it for corralling my manicure items.

 

Hosting a party or just love having a bar setup in your abode?  An acrylic bar cart boasts organization for the supplies and bottles, and looks super glam besides!

Although I am a fan of keeping the acrylic on display, it also functions big in tucked away places.  Smaller acrylic shelves can be added to medicine cabinets to create extra storage space for little things.

 

Smaller containers are wonderful for desk accessories, or in the bathroom for itty bitties such as cotton swabs and brush holders.

 

Acrylic drawer options that stack are ideal storage for under the sink as you can see the contents and save space at the same time.

 

Acrylic is an organizational win all around for many reasons.  It is versatile enough to be used in many ways, in almost any space.  It is glam, chic, sophisticated, lovely and can be dressed up or down.  It goes with everything, is durable, simple to clean and typically is quite sturdy for even the toughest organizing jobs.  One of the reasons I crush on it the most is because you can always see the contents of what you are storing, which means less rummaging and sifting for objects you are looking for.
