Hang It All
Whether it's damp towels or an impromptu art show, hanging whatever one can plays a major part in Lauri's master organization plan. "Hanging things is the easiest way to get them out of the way," she says. "But it's also a good visual solution―it lets things be looked at and enjoyed."
Towel bars have been replaced by hooks next to the shower, eliminating the need for folding and just-so draping. An extra hook installed below gives the bath mat a place to dry. "A friend and I were talking about how hard it is to live and raise kids in New York, and all the things we stress about doing right or wrong," says Lauri. "We agreed that the pressure of making sure your towels are perfectly creased and aligned over a bar shouldn't be one of those things. These hooks are a little thing that has made a huge difference to me."
