Our bathrooms have no storage. None. Not a medicine cabinet, not a vanity cabinet, not a drawer. (Early on, someone joked that a man clearly designed this place, but even men need a place for a deodorant and a razor, right?)
We do have very pretty, modern, square sinks with a shelf below. With the arrival of the new World Market stores here in Minneapolis, I finally picked up baskets for the girls' bathroom.
Finally, the extra toilet paper can be stashed away, and various low-use items can be hidden from sight. Beyond that, I love the way the chunky texture of the baskets brings some warmth and a natural element to the fairly cool, modern space.
At one point I planned to skirt these sinks (remember?), but in the end it seemed like a shame to cover up a pair of statement vanities.

Living in this house has been an interesting mix of embracing the elements that are more modern than I might have chosen, and bringing in my own eclectic spin on things.
Have you brought anything new into your home lately? I just read somewhere that one of the cures to clutter is to not buy too many containers. But sometimes storage solutions are just plain necessary.
Hope you have a great weekend. We are going to see Louis CK tonight, and I can't wait: I could use a good laugh!
