Pantry Redo

I have been in a MAJOR spring cleaning mode this year and one of the first things I tackled was our pantry. I feel like I might have missed my calling in life…LOL. Watch out Marie Kondo! My pantry turned out amazing, exactly as I envisioned, and we’ve been living with it for several months and it still looks exactly the same! Having bins that you can corral things into is KEY in keeping it looking neat. Here is how I did it and links to everything I used (the images below are all clickable). Just remember, when you’re organizing, it ALWAYS gets worse before it gets better! One. The first thing I did was hop on Pinterest and search […]

I Want More…

I’m sure if you shop in Boem, you can see that we are busting at the seams.  We just have SO. MUCH. MERCHANDISE.  I have used a retail consultant for Boem for years.  He is incredible and has helped me grow my business 4 fold over 10 years.  All of my buying is broken down by category and we track the sales each month.  According to my sales, he creates a buying plan that encourages my store to grow.  The retail buying plan is a dollar amount, so it doesn’t account for how many pieces we’re buying or how much space we have.  As we have grown, we have gotten creative: adding cubbies, shelves, and racks in order to hold […]

House Pinning

Image via Amber Interiors.  All other images via Pinterest. I had a former employee (a college student) back in town for a few weeks and she wanted hours at Boem, so I said, ‘you know what?  You can have all mine’ LOL.  So I took some personal time this week and it has been GRAND.  I had a friend in town, so we lunched and shopped (and dinnered and drank).  I met another friend for coffee.  I got a massage, I went to the dentist, and I did a ton of furniture shopping.  I also met with my builder for 2 hours to start hashing out house details.  Because guess what??  OUR HOUSE STARTED THIS WEEK.  Praise be.  The timing […]
