A paper towel holder doubles as a place to stack bracelets and rings. Use a desk caddy to organize makeup brushes and hair accessories, like the Biarritz Desk Caddy! A short vase is another cute way to store makeup or hair brushes, and you won’t mind keeping it out on your vanity.

Living Room

A clear glass coffee table will open up the room and give you more visual space. If you don’t have room for a coffee table, a flat ottoman and and large tray does double time as extra seating or a footrest, or as an additional table when you need it.

Use clear glass kitchen canisters to store laundry staples right where they are needed most. They brighten the view, keep work and folding surfaces tidy, and provide convenient storage space for reusable items, such as clothespins.
