It's that time of year again: Back-to-School season is upon us. That means it's the time of year where being organized is of utmost importance. Nowhere is this more true than your child's workspace. Having a space that is well-organized, open, and doesn't clash with the rest of your house decor will leave both yourself and your kid happy campers over the next ten months.
Thank goodness for Crate & Barrel, these guys have their stylish back-to-school game on lock. They understand the growing trend of open-space design, and they understand that "kid's space" doesn't have to mean "messy space." They gave us some great options for our segment on Breakfast Television this morning, and I'm so excited to share them with you.
A great workspace starts with a great table (if you don't like what you're working on, you won't work on it - simple as that!) What's so great about the Hobby Table from Crate & Barrel is that the side tables actually open, so when it is not in use, it can be tucked away neatly. Having two sides that come out also ensures that each kid gets his or her own space to work.
Everyone knows that I am all about the neutrals. That being said, I do love when I can add a splash of colour to a neutral space. Especially when that colour is this beautiful turquoise, it makes any room pop. I love these chairs, so much so that I am trying to justify where they would fit in my house!
Storage doesn't have to be utilitarian. Sometimes it just takes a bit of creativity. We chose Crate & Barrel's "Hearth Cracker Basket," "Hearth Flatware Caddy," and "Hearth Long Basket," to store our pens/markers/glue sticks in them. They help keep all of our supplies close at hand and make for easy clean up.
This storage ottoman is another great find, I love when something can look good, but also can secretly hide all the things kids (and moms) accumulate.
The extras make all the difference in a workspace. They take standard space and personalize it to reflect your life. I love that! For example, how perfect are these memo clips for holding index cards when studying for a big test? Another great Crate & Barrel find are the chalkboard placemats. I remember being a kid and wanting to put my name on everything! I would've been so happy to label my workspace as my own with the soapstone chalk we featured today.
I mentioned above that I find the turquoise colour a beautiful addition to fall decorating. This morning, we put rolls of craft paper into this serpente blue basket. Craft paper can be difficult to have, it takes up a lot of space, and can get quite out of hand. But by putting them in this basket, that matches the accents of the room, it wasn't a problem!
Make sure you check out the source list below, it includes absolutely everything we had on Breakfast Television this morning. I hope this gave you some ideas what to do with your kid's study space this year, or even your own!
