Behind the Scenes:: One NEAT Girl Shows us How to Make an Adorable Children's Room... for Two!

City living can be tough. The best way to learn how to do it right is from a NEAT girl. Lisa, our Bay Area NEAT girl certainly has her fair share of hurdles when in comes to city living. San Francisco has some small spaces with extra small closets but she has proven that she can work miracles when she set up a room for her two daughters who are one and four years old. Today we are sharing the proof that this adorable space is shared daily by two DARLING little girls (lucky!) 

Here is an overall view of this adorable, modern space. Our eyes were immediately drawn to that pink closet in the corner so we had to ask and Lisa gave us the scoop! "Painting the inside of the closet was the very first thing I did to the apartment when we bought it. At that time, it was just Lulu in the room. It's such an odd little closet. I thoguht it would be fun for her to open the door and see a bright flash of pink." 

The other thing we couldn't help but notice is her daughter's lofted bed with the small play area underneath - we needed a closer look... 

Sure enough, Lisa had maximized the floor space by adding some great baskets to keep her girl's toys in one space. You can get similar baskets to the ones you see in this photo here, here and here

The best part of all, Lisa added this great fabric under the lofted bed to "hide" the toys if necessary. Of course, this doubles as the most fun kid's fort ever!

We also couldn't help but be curious about that dresser and how Lisa managed to have two girls share it so we asked her to send us a picture of the details. In this picture, you can see she used these great baskets from Babies R' Us (which they don't carry anymore - BOO!) If you are considering having a shared room for your children, Lisa highly recommends having baskets even in the shelves to that is clear whose belongings are whose. 

Inside the drawers, Lisa used adjustable drawer dividers so that the girl's clothes chould be perfectly compartmentalized. Since Bee (the baby) needs her clothes changed more often, her clothes can be found here. Whereas, Lulu (big sis) has most of her clothes hanging in the closet.

Speaking of the closet.... Lisa maximized this space by hanging necessary pint-sized clothing up top, but then purchasing this cubed storage for below. She anchored it to the wall in preparation for little climbers and added the cute baskets from Land of Nod.

Since we had an expert like Lisa available to us, we asked, "What was your favorite part about this project?"

"I had full reign.  Rather I should say I "took" full reign and didn't ask for any input.  I try to be as democratic as possible in the other areas of our home, but I went rogue with this room.  It was really fun to have that kind of control.
I also loved the subtle impact the paint made.  We painted the walls a really pale grey and it made a huge difference.  I read on Emily Henderson's blog that small rooms benefit from color.   I was sold when I read that."
 
We also asked Lisa what the hardest part was... you'll be surprised to see her answer!
"Stopping myself.  Let's get real.  It's a small room that requires a lot of functionality.  I had more ideas, but the room would have been insane.  I became obsessed with a few IG accounts of Swedish moms/interior designers/graphic designers.  The black and white cartoon rabbit is a print by Mini Willa.  The ABC print above Lulu's loft is by Tellkiddo.  I have carts full all over the internet that will never be purchased...sigh.
 
I did manage to get away with two rugs though!  I've always loved the look of layered rugs.  My husband told me I had to stop after that... I guess I didn't have TOTAL control afterall..." 
 
We love your space Lisa, and we are sure the girls will have many memories in that perfectly NEAT room!

5 Ways to Love Your Space More this Month

Happy February! We are officially in the month of love. This month, we are going to be sharing how to have a great relationship with your home. Forget finding Mr./Mrs. Right and get ready to fall in love with your space! Today, we are sharing five products that will help you love some of those more difficult spaces in your home. First up, is tackling that horrible pile of mail you have... everywhere... :) We found this adorable Etsy page, Jennifer Helene Home  that makes these great CUSTOM canvas bins for your problem areas. You can pick everything down to the words and the thread color!

Speaking of personalized, it is always nice to have a pouch (or two!) to keep your smaller items in check. From chargers and headphones for your phone to gift certificates, receipts and coupons for your favorite stores, these dipped canvas pouches are sure to make you happy. It's time to clean out the junk drawer and love opening a drawer with a few of these instead! 

Nothing makes a NEAT girl happier than walking into the Container Store to find new products. The Tosca basket has caught our eye and we can't stop using it! It is the perfect way to give your pantry a pick-me-up.  Contain foods by category to prevent over buying. By doing this, your wallet will love you too!

Have a nightstand that keeps you awake at night? We love the simplicity of this sleek wood organizer complete with iphone dock. It's pretty amazing to also find a quality product like this that is made in the USA (Dallas, Texas of course!) Check out Piece Of Shards on Etsy for other great products that will give your friends some serious home envy. 

Finally, in case you missed our instagram video from last month, we think every home needs this cable zipper. Nothing is more frustrating than wires everywhere! We fell in love with the cable zipper last month and feel like it's time for you to fall in love too!

We hope you have a wonderful February. Stay tuned on  more ways to love your home this month!

5 Apps for Organizing Your Business

In addition to making homes beautiful, it shouldn't go unnoticed that all of the NEAT girls are ALSO running their own business. Meaning ... that aside from organizing, we have businesses to keep up with. Seeing as most of our days are spent away from our desks, this can become quite stressful. However, there are a handful of apps that help us keep organized no matter where our office is for the day. We hope that all of you entrepreneurs find them just as helpful ...

First up is Payable, a NEAT girl fav for submittlng payment to our teams!

"Organize anything with anyone", you could say it was love at first sight since Trello's slogan is like music to our ears.

Calendly's ability to simplify scheduling has been a game changer for a few of us!

Slack is another app we can't say enough good things about. It has helped the NEAT girls stay connected to each other while being miles apart.

And because we love a good glass of vino at the end of a long work week, Vivino deserves a shout out too! This app allows you to store and shop for your favorite wines - who doesn't need that?

We want to give a special thanks to all of the creators of these apps, we sure couldn't be as efficient and organized without you!

2016 Room Decorating Color Trends

We don't know about you, but we love to be in the know about home decoration trends! Every year House Beautiful publishes a list of the color trends that Interior Designers predict to be HUGE in 2016. Today, we are taking that knowledge and matching it to an organizational solution that we think will be hue(ge) as well!

House Beautiful, 2016 Color Trends, Home Decor, Home Organizing, Organizational solutions

We love the 'simply white' trend and there are so many baskets that support this style. The pictured baskets can be found at Zestt

And who doesn't love the elegance of dark teal. Jayes Studio does and they have everything from umbrella stands to trays to support the trend.

We were a little suprised to see purple on the color wheel for this year, but Land of Nod is already all over it with these baskets.

The best part is that even if you aren't up for repainting a room, you can still be on trend with the addition of a simple basket or two!

3 Tips from Stylist Alyssa Doorhy

Since the NEAT girls spend a lot of time in beautiful closets we are constantly color-coding the latest and greatest fashion pieces. However, that certainly does NOT mean we are fashion experts. In fact, we would never offer fashion advice instead we refer anyone who asks to one of our Stylist friends. We love working with them, and learning from them too!

Today we are interviewing one of favorite Chicago stylists, Alyssa from Cochic Styling, to bring you tips to enhance your wardrobe in 2016!

CoChic Styling Logo, Alyssa Doorhy, Chicago Stylist

NM :: Tell us a little about yourself - where are you from? How long have you lived there?

Alyssa :: I am from Batavia, IL, a western suburb of Chicago. After graduating college in 2008, I moved to Chicago and have lived here ever since. I met my husband here, who is also from a Chicago suburb, so I don't think we'll ever leave. Good thing I love it! ;)

CoChic Styling Logo, Alyssa Doorhy, Chicago Personal Shopper

NM :: We certainly share your love for Chicago. What is your background, how did you get into styling?

Alyssa :: I owned a women's boutique for four years and really enjoyed styling clients who came into the boutique. I love the fashion industry but decided retail wasn't for me. Personal styling was the best next step for me in my career.

CoChic Styling Logo, Alyssa Doorhy, Chicago Stylist

NM :: That’s awesome! Do you have any particular areas that you specialize in?

Alyssa :: There is a common misconception that only rich people and celebrities have stylists, but I work with any budget to help style the "everyday" woman who wants to be more comfortable and confident in what she's wearing. I also specialize in wedding styling, styling everyone's wardrobe from the bridal party, to the mother of the bride to the bride's favorite aunt.

CoChic Styling Logo, Alyssa Doorhy, Chicago Bridal Stylist

NM :: If someone is looking to do 3 things to step up their style in 2016 what advice would you give them? Do you have any ‘must have pieces’ that believe all closets should have?

Alyssa :: 1. Do yourself a favor and clean out your closet! I always recommend doing a closet clean out before a personal styling session because once you refine your closet, getting rid of items that you don't wear anymore, you will have a clearer view of what your personal style is, and then you can shop accordingly.

2. Hire a personal stylist! Even if you have good style, it's always helpful to get a professional opinion. You can learn new ways to put outfits together and try outfits you may not have thought to try.

CoChic Styling Logo, Alyssa Doorhy, Chicago Stylist

3. Don't give into new trends if they don't fit in with your lifestyle, personal style or age. If you are comfortable wearing trends, go for it! If not, go for classic pieces that will stand the test of time. Must-have pieces vary based on a woman's lifestyle but I'd say some important basics are: well-fitting dark wash jeans in whatever style flatters your body; a crisp white button down shirt; well-fitting undergarments; black ankle boots; and a little black dress. "Well-fitting" is the key term. The least expensive garment will look like a million bucks if it fits perfectly.

CoChic Styling Logo, Alyssa Doorhy, Chicago Stylist

NM :: Thanks for the advice, now let’s talk CoChic Styling + NEAT! We’ve heard you worked with Brooke. What have you done together?

Alyssa :: Yes! Brooke was so fun to work with. I styled her engagement photos! I brought her several items to choose from, and we chose what outfits she was most comfortable in, what was most flattering and what would look best in photos.

Exclusive Interview with NEAT's Co-Founders

We absolutely can not believe it but it has now been FIVE years since NEAT Method began! So much has happened in the past 5 years and coming up with how to recap it was really tough. After much debate, we figured there was no better way to get the highlights than to conduct a first ever interview with Molly & Ashley on what has made NEAT what it is today! 

Molly Graves, Ashley Murphy, NEAT Method, Co-Founders, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, Home Organizing, Professional Organizers

Question #1 :: Wow 5 years!! If only we could go back in time and ask you what you thought the company would look like in 5 years! But since we can't ... what do you think you would have said?

Molly :: I would have said that we would be organizing Oprah's closet - think big right?? We were on Oprah.com so that is close right?? No seriously, I would have said we would have expanded to some more markets but if you would tell me we would be in 12, I would have been shocked!

Molly Graves, Ashley Murphy, NEAT Method, Co-Founders, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, Home Organizing, Professional Organizers

Question #2 :: Those are some ammazing accomplishments. What would you say has been the biggest success of the last five years?

Ashley :: The biggest success has been offering other women the opportunity to run their own business and find financial success doing something they love.

Molly :: Agreed. That and just coming from two completely different industries (personal training and teaching) and being able to learn about what it takes to launch a business and successfully expand it. It has been such an amazing learning process and experience.

Molly Graves, Ashley Murphy, NEAT Method, Co-Founders, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, Home Organizing, Professional Organizers

Question #3 :: Now please we have to know, have there been any challenges? Give us just one and tell us what you did to get through it!

Molly :: What challenges?? Ha ha! When Ashley found out she would be moving back to Chicago, we were unsure what it would be like to be business partners and live across the country and whether it would work. We literally talk daily and have stepped up our communication and it has gone off without a hitch!

Ashley :: Another challenge we faced was trying to expand our business to new markets without spreading ourselves too thin. We worked with a business coach and came up with processes that really worked and also have the most supportive team with Marissa and Brooke. We are lucky to have amazing women to work with that believe in our business.

Molly Graves, Ashley Murphy, NEAT Method, Co-Founders, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, Home Organizing, Professional Organizers

Question #4 :: We are sure you have many but can you share one of your goals with us for the next 5 years?!

Ashley :: We would love to become an American Household name. That is going to take some serious expansion and partnerships with other amazing businesses but we are up for the challenge!

Molly Graves, Ashley Murphy, NEAT Method, Co-Founders, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, Home Organizing, Professional Organizers

Question #5 :: Any funny memories from the last 5 years? We are sure there are many but can you give us one good story?

Molly :: Oh man! That is tough - there have been so many great memories!!! When we first launched, we got the opportunity to travel to Savannah Tennessee to organize for a family that won our services through a giveaway - we brought our Mom's for backup which was hilarious because the business was so small. We slept in twin beds in the cutest bed and breakfast and the whole town treated us like royalty - it was SO FUN!

Ashley :: In our first year of business, we also traveled to NYC for mostly pleasure but decided to see if we could strum up some business. In less than a day of sharing on social media that NEAT was taking over NYC we have 4 inquiries and a PR company call us to ask how we spread the word so fast. We laughed through many glasses of wine about how fast we started the best NEAT rumor ever... now we are REALLY there!!

Molly Graves, Ashley Murphy, NEAT Method, Co-Founders, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, Home Organizing, Professional Organizers

Question #6 :: Haha those are great stories! If you could give a new entrepreneur one tip for growing a successful company what would it be?

Ashley :: I would say when it is hard to remember that this is the time when most quit - if you keep going, you will likely find that great success you are looking for. I would say when things seem overwhelming, make a to-do list. That is so organizer to say but it helps to really map out what you need to to do in order to get where you want to go. A list helps keep your plans in perspective.

There are so many people who are so grateful that you pushed through the hard times! Here are just a few who wanted to send you a surprise message today, cheers and Happy Anniversary!

xx,
Your NEAT Girls

A Nursery fit for a queen!

While we talk about how to organize a nursery quite frequently, we realized that in previous posts we missed a very important step in the nursery planning process. We can talk all day long about where to place each little onesie and how to make sure the essentials are within arms reach, but when it comes to selecting the best nursery furniture we like to leave that up to the experts. Therefore, we were thrilled when AFK Furniture asked if they could share a few tips with us about selecting the most organizing friendly furniture. Here's what they had to say...

NM :: We are excited to hear your tips so lets dive right in. What are the top 3 things to consider when buying nursery furniture?

AFK :: We always recommend you look for mulitfunctional pieces that transition well as the child grows. We also say that no nursery is complete with out some open shelving for books and we love to recommend adding a beautiful crib skirt if you need to use under the crib for additional storage.

NM :: That all makes perfect sense to us! Those pieces are each so pretty on their own we are dying to see pictures of a whole room set up with AFK Furniture. 

AFK :: Well we happen to have a few of those :). Here is Mariah Carey's nursery - we think it turned out pretty adorable! 

afk furniture, nursery furniture, nursery design, Mariah Carey's Nursery

NM :: You can say that again! Since we happen to love watching design trends, are there any nursery color palettes that are really popular right now? 

AFK :: We are seeing gender neutrality become a huge trend. Additionally, we are seeing opulent grandeur become a trend for 2016, a nod to historical references, think classic periods. This glamorous shift calls for metallic notes in contemporary interiors. Lastly, a major color trend more consistent with the past few years, is white on white. This is a simple pairing, but exudes serenity in the nursery.

NM :: Oh yes we have noticed that a lot of our Interior Designer partners are choosing more neutral themes and we love it! Is there anything else you think we should know?

AFK :: Our lead designer Gail Reiter Sedigh said it best, “Our goal is simple: We strive to create a room that is beautiful, functional, safe and unique for your child.” From concept to completion, we’ll stand by your side to make sure all aspects of the project meet our extremely high standards.

Well it sounds like we share many of the same goals :). Thank you for your insight - we look forward to working with you to make a nursery NEAT very soon!

2015's NEATest Spaces

2015 was definitely one for the books in our NEAT world! We organized more homes than ever before across 12 different cities Nationwide. While hard to do, each city selected their favorite space from 2015 and here they are for your viewing pleasure!  

Organized pantry, organized linen closet, organized closet, organized craft room, NEAT Method

First up (from left to right) is Michigan, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale and San Diego and here is what they had to say about why this space was their favorite ... 

- Michigan :: My favorite was the more recent linen closet. The space is used daily by a family of 5 and it is now not only perfectly functional, but something beautiful to look at. 

- Chicago :: There were so many to pick from, but this gentleman's closet was NEAT Chicago's favorite space to organize this year because it was a color coded DREAM!

- Fort Lauderdale :: We just loved how this West Palm Beach pantry turned out! An organized pantry is so much more appetizing!

- San Diego :: We loved organizing this craft room in Newport Beach. It's always inspiring to organize in such a well designed space.

And now for Denver, Columbus, New Jersey and Milwaukee (from left to right)  ... 

- Denver :: We love this newly NEAT hall closet because it is easy to maintain and reduces the stress of this family's everyday needs!

- Columbus :: Neat Method Columbus' favorite space of 2015 was transforming this spare bedroom into a master closet. The client was in labor at the time so the day was filled with excitement and anticipation of a new baby! We loved creating a completely organized and beautiful space that would help this new mama get ready in a snap.

- New Jersey :: We couldn't say more about how lovely this nursery was to declutter! A little girl's dream. 

- Milwaukee :: My favorite space was this family room and playroom. Like many family rooms, it had been taken over by toys and crafts. Categorizing everything and using bins and baskets restored it to a room that both parents and kids can enjoy!

organized laundry room, pottery barn, organized closet, organized jewelry

And last, but definitely not least, San Francisco, New York, Scottsdale and St. Louis (from left to right)  ... 

- San Francisco :: Our favorite project was this laundry room collaboration we did with Pottery Barn. We loved using PB products to make this client's space NEAT. 

- New York :: This beautiful space was so fun to work on. It is great to know that your client will enjoy shopping their closet each and every morning. 

- Scottsdale :: This was one of our favorite closet organizing projects! Who doesn't want to see all of their beautiful accessories?

- St. Louis :: I loved making this laundry room NEAT. Laundry isn't always the most fun task but it is much better when you are working in a beautiful space. 

 
Thanks for sharing ladies! We can not wait to see what great spaces are in store for us in 2016!

Miami Turns Up the Heat!

Over the past three years, our South Florida organizers have been hard at work creating NEAT homes all across the Southern Florida region. So much so, that they no longer can handle all of their amazing NEAT clients on their own. We are thrilled to announce that Florida now has two NEAT girls to keep things as NEAT as possible down in the Sunshine State. After months of searching for the right girl to expand Miami, Marissa found the perfect candidate! This new NEAT girl will be organizing homes in Brickell, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, The Florida Keys, Key Biscayne, Kendall, Palmetto Bay and Pinecrest and we couldn't be more excited about this opportunity. We won't keep you on the edge of your seats any longer, please meet our newest NEAT girl!

NM:: Tatiana, we are beyond thrilled to add you to our team this year. Tell our readers a little bit about why you are excited to become a NEAT girl! 

TB:: My name is Tatiana Blanco and I am ecstatic about becoming a NEAT Method girl. As the saying goes “Think Globally, Act locally”, everyone in today’s world knows what it is like to live a hectic life, which means most do not have time to organize their home to its fullest potential. I want to bring NEAT to all of those homes in my beautiful, sunny, palm tree lined backyard - Miami!

NM:: That is awesome! What did you do before you ran NEAT?

TB:: I owned a baking business in the Canary Islands, Spain. Yes cupcakes, cakes, desserts galore! Lots of beautifully labeled flour, sugar and sprinkles bins where my best friends!

NM:: SPAIN - how cool! So what brought you to Miami?

TB:: I grew up in Miami, got married here and then spent 8 years living in the amazing Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. We returned last summer and are excited to raise our family in Miami!

NEAT Method, Professional Organizer, Home Organizer, Tatiana Blanco, Cupcakes, Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables, Coconut Gove, The Florida Keys, Key Biscayne, Kendall, Palmetto Bay

NM:: Well, we sure are glad you moved back! What do you you think makes Miami so unique?

TB:: Miami has Latin flavor in its veins! It is in constant growth…a huge tourism Capital that's always surprising us with something NEW to SEE and DO! The events calendar of this city can be overwhelming!!! It’s a vibrant playground where you are always inspired by the melting pot of people from around the globe who call this their home.

NM:: We couldn't agree more. Now that you are back, which shopping spots and restaurants are you most excited to be near again?

TB:: Definitely Lincoln Road. You can shop, eat, people watch, hear some music and even grab a cocktail here - what else could you ask for?! I also love Smith & Wollensky, mainly for the amazing terrace setting next to the ocean, Joe’s Stone Crab, Coyo Taco in Wynwood and Casa Cuba!

NEAT Method, Professional Organizer, Home Organizer, Tatiana Blanco, Cupcakes, Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables, Coconut Gove, The Florida Keys, Key Biscayne, Kendall, Palmetto Bay

NM:: Yum! All of those spots will certainly be a great treat after a day of organizing. What do you think is going to be your favorite part of running NEAT in your city? 

TB:: I am excited to infect people with the NEAT bug. Once my clients experience the process of purging, simplifying and finding better functionality in their home, I know their lives will be transformed. I am excited to be able to bring that peace and balance into the lives of others.

NM:: That is definitely one of the best parts of this business. Are there any other businesses in Miami that you are currently admiring, and why?

TB:: I admire start-ups. We Work Miami is a co-working space that builds a community of entrepreurs. Their members get to share a beautiful working space and are able to connect and work together with other people who are part of a start-up. I just love that!

NEAT Method, Professional Organizer, Home Organizer, Tatiana Blanco, Cupcakes, Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables, Coconut Gove, The Florida Keys, Key Biscayne, Kendall, Palmetto Bay

NM:: Okay you knew it was coming, can you show us a picture of your least organized space and tell us what it is that went so terribly wrong?

TB:: This is my purse change-over drawer...it is always in constant chaos as much as I try to keep it pretty!!! I change purses almost daily so this is where I dump all my stuff and pick what I need for that day.

NEAT Method, Professional Organizer, Home Organizer, Tatiana Blanco

NM:: Now you can redeem yourself. What is your most organized space and why do you love it?

TB:: This is my Yoga/Workout drawer. It's the first drawer I open every morning, so I like to see all my options well laid out for me to quickly choose and get going!

NEAT Method, Professional Organizer, Home Organizer, Tatiana Blanco

NM:: This has been so great! Are there any hidden talents you have that we haven't uncovered yet?

TB:: I can bake you an amazing Key Lime Pie (or cupcakes) and also make a killer margarita. And, I must admit that sometimes my kids and husband find me doing my advanced Yoga Inversions at home and wonder if I joined Cirque Du Soleil.

NEAT Method, Professional Organizer, Home Organizer, Tatiana Blanco, Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables, Coconut Gove, The Florida Keys, Key Biscayne, Kendall, Palmetto Bay

NM:: Haha well you can certainly make us a Key Lime Pie anytime you would like!

Thank you for sharing a bit about the woman behind Miami! We are so happy we found you and look forward to seeing all of the NEAT things you do in 2016! Welcome to the team.
