Rose & Grey

As part of my ongoing campaign to tidy up my flat, I have been looking for a crate or large wire basket to keep weekend newspapers in. When I saw this crate on wheels from Rose & Grey I was thrilled as it is exactly what I am looking for. I'm sure no-one is interested but I am making great progress after 33 years of mediocre results - my magazines are filed in Muji box files and today I came very close to wrapping up leads in plastic bands and labelling them with what they are for (camera, scanner etc.) One of these days I am going to be totally organised.

Until then, I'm easily distracted by a little shop surfing and the crate discovery was all I needed to peruse Rose & Grey further. There is a selection of larger items of furniture (including a few ornate dog beds, but I can't go there, even though I'm sure there is a market) but also smaller, more affordable items like these below.

I purchased very similar wooden crates with metal hubs from Ikea. They come in a number of sizes that stack and fit atop each other like trays. Wheels are sold separately. I love them!

Oooh redesign! (I so got confused for a moment and thought I'd reached somewhere else – late night brain!) Looks lovely :) And yes those crates are fab... I so know we'd just end up with cats sitting in them though! ;)

Love the crates! Also love the tapestry. I keep on meaning to buy them but I fear my sewing skills are a little lacking!

Those crates make me want to regress back to childhood and jump right in for a spot of racing...
Hmm, I clearly need to work at this organisation thing!
