After: Purge, Paint, Prop

Coach Cordelli says to first make sense of the contents of your linen closet: “If your kitchen is halfway across the house, don’t store tea towels here.” At the Brunos’, beach towels were moved to a basket near the back door for use by the pool, while ratty rags went to the garage for greasy hands or into the trash.

“The closet floor is where items get tossed and then lost,” says Chip. But fill that spot with a rolling bin and it stays debris-free and functional. The Brunos use their cart for paper goods and diapers, but it could just as easily function as a hamper for dirty clothes or a home for cleaning products.

To buy: No.122 small truck, $100, steelecanvas.com for info. Cairo bath towel, $54, wash cloth, $18, and guest towel, $23; Serena bedding, $72 to $109: matouk.com. Every Day printed percale bedding, $16 to $68, garnethill.com.
