Apartment 34's Dream Pantry Design

Over the past few months we have been collaborating on a really fun project that we have been dying to tell you all about! We had the privilage of working with the adorable Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34 to create the pantry of her dreams.

As always, our goal with Erin's pantry was to make it so that she could see everything that she has and to keep like type items together. These are the two key ingredients to a highly functional pantry!

However, the organizing can't really even begin without a properly designed space. Therefore, we were so glad that California Closets was also involved in this make-over because they were able to give us a great framework to work within.

Once the installation was complete it was on to the to NEAT details. We took inventory of everything Erin had and got our favorite products from The Container Store to stock up on our favorite pantry storage items! Of course after implenting everything we went to town lableing!

How fun is this drawer feature that California Closets offers? We love using them for produce!

 And the final step to completing this, or any pantry for that matter, is to hire a good Photographer to capture the 'after'. Here is our favorite, Michelle Drewes, behind the scenes of these beautiful photos.

NEAT Pumpkin Carving Alternatives

There is nothing a NEAT girl loves more than preparing a home for the holidays! However, we tend to be a bit Type-A about the types of decorations that we allow. Are you surprised?! 

While pumpkin carving can be quite fun you also have to admit it can be the opposite of NEAT, and the outcome doesn't always match the asthetic of your home. This year we might be able to inspire you to put down the knife and bust out the paint with a few of our favorite carving alternatives.

How scrupmtious are these donut pumkins? We have our friends at Studio DIY to thank for this idea!

If you are feeling super artsy, it just doesn't get much better than these hand painted floral pumpkins from Craft Berry Bush!

For those of us with slightly less Picasso in you, keep in mind that a solid color can also go a long way! Lovely Indeed is a perfect way to describe these pumpkins and also happens to be the name of blog where we found them.

Speaking of solid colors, how about using our favorite, ROY G BIV? So simple, yet so cute! Thanks Jaderbomb for the inspo!

Who is feeling excited about Halloween now? We know we are feeling PUMPed! 

Happy Decorating!
