March is National Reading Month, so we’ve rounded up our top book recommendations to help you stay organized at home.
The clue is in the author/publisher here – leave it to the home care masterminds at Good Housekeeping to publish a guide of accessible, actionable tips to help you organize each room of your home – and all of the nooks and crannies in between – to maximize form and function. What’s great about this book is that it’s not a one-and-done read; it’s designed to be a reference guide that you can revisit to refresh a space as your needs change.
Organization goes beyond your kitchen pantry or your office space. In her book The Curated Closet, Anuschka Rees talks readers through how to take inventory of what’s in your closet to build a refreshed and sustainable signature look without breaking the bank. She explores formulas for blending wardrobe staples, and helps readers understand when to upcycle or donate old standbys and one-season wonders.
Whether you know her from her years of airtime on HGTV, or from her Hearth & Hand line at Target, Joanna Gaines’ credibility is unparalleled in making swoon-worthy livable spaces. Her book details the ins-and-outs of home aesthetic and style, with design templates for readers to apply the information to their own homes. Part guide, part workbook, Gaines leaves readers feeling confident and capable to tackle their own home design projects.
Another unstoppable duo in the home care space is Julie Carlson and Margot Guralnick, authors of Remodelista. Together, they focus their insights on helping readers find happiness at home, with a trove of tips and quality visuals that are as inspirational as they are actionable. What makes this book even more unique is that it’s not just full of advice from the authors, but also features interviews with professionals who are powered by organization – from hoteliers to kindergarten teachers.
