Store it, display it

We redecorated our dining room five or six years ago, ripping up the old carpet to reveal old style terracota tiles and painting the room white except for two bold red alcoves either side of the fireplace. It was only ever a room that we went 'through' and never made use of, so since the decor update, we've turned it into a more multi-functional space.

We have a big desk that gives us plenty of storage and display space, I have my Welsh dresser and vintage bureau that I just adore and in front of the large window that looks onto our back garden, we have a fold up dining table.

The room is actually a favourite for us as it is so multi-functional, colourful and is where we let our personalities really come through. The bolder the better! It's also a practical space as we work in it and keep all our paperwork and bits and bobs here.

Finding places to store paperwork and keep Ethan's artwork safe even can be tricky - even when you opt to go paperless, you still seem to accumulate so much paper, don't you think?! Add into it my obsession with stationery and hoarding recipes torn out of magazines, and things can quickly get into a mess.

Thanks to Dandelion Interiors, we have a new feature in the dining room that makes a statement and is practical too.

Our Iron 4 Section Wall Storage Box Organiser (currently on offer for £35) fits into a space to the right of our window perfectly and looks the part alongside our eclectic mix of old and new pieces in the dining room, including our antique style wooden trays.

It's really robust and I like the fact that it mimics a traditional filing cabinet look but with a vintage / rustic edge.

There's two slots that are covered and two that are mesh, so you can hide boring bills and display favourite magazines or pieces of artwork, and there's a good depth so you can fit a lot in.

I think that this wall storage organiser is really different - just like a lot of the items from Dandelion Interiors - and it's a great combination of style and a practical solution.
