Carmen's best advice to those who want to streamline every room was to first get everything out, find out what you have before you put it back in a designated room.

It is a technique that she believes has enabled her to efficiently organize even the smallest spaces & # 39 ;.

When organizing each area, it is the small things such as containers and labels that make the difference.

Although the result looks chic, stylish and trendy, Carmen does not believe in spending a huge amount of money.

For example, when she recently messed up her linen press, she shoped at Bunnings where she was able to buy white-dipped baskets, priced at $ 12 for two.

Labeling is also something that adds a unique and refined touch.

A color palette of soft pink, cream, gray works well against natural wood floors and accessories. Rose gold accents are also everywhere.
