Here's how I've been using my ferm living lately... New star cushion. I like the green on red and my handstand man. I also covered my ugly bumpy glass cabinets with our marble wallpaper.
I've been using my medium wire basket to hold blankets (and sometimes it becomes a laundry pile too...).
This copper tray corrals my bedside things (i.e. gets cluttered with jewelry).
And a small spear tray does the same thing with my keys, mail, etc. It usually ends up cluttered as well. But, I believe that the intent of being organized is half the battle, so I'm half winning.
