OK, call it a resolution. I'm just a tad overwhelmed by stuff, so the new year seems a fitting time for organization. There are stores dedicated to it, publications with a sole focus on it and people who make it their job to help us manage it better.
While the creative intersection of organization and design can seem challenging, it's actually an opportunity to blend the two into a statement-making environment. When I buy antiques and vintage goods for my shop, it's not always for the provenance or value of the items, but rather sometimes for the utilitarian purposes they can serve. I determine how to enlist these goods as foot soldiers in the war on clutter.
