Become An Expert In Art Storage

Every house, office or studio you visit, one thing will always be there for sure – an art piece! It tells you a lot about the owner of the said painting. Sometimes it is more expensive than the house itself. Fast forward to movies where art or set design is the mainstay on which storytellers pay a lot of attention, when creating a masterpiece.
To jog your memory, Wes Anderson a renowned director known for his outlandish set designs, has his move filled with art décor. The latest among them – The Grand Budapest Hotel. So how do you take care of such priceless piece of artifacts? You don’t need to rob it or put it in a glass casing. It takes proper wrapping and transporting and a safe warehouse storage in Mumbai in place.

Here are some of the storing tips on hand:

Wrap it up

It is not rocket science to preserve a painting. A three layered wrapping method will suffice. First, you need to slowly wrap the painting in transparent plastic foil which is easily available in the market. Secondly, a layer of bubble wrap to protect the edges from being chipped off. Thirdly, a brown paper to seal the deal.
Additionally, when you are transporting the art, thermocol sheets are of great use. See how the packaging guys get your products. Just like that! You can also use confetti so there is a layer of buffer when you hit a bump on the road.

Rack it up

When storing your paintings, always remember to make use of a rack in a warehouse storage. You can create one by cutting 2 x 4 wooden planks and placing it flat on to it. This way you avoid the water from dampening or any other insect from entering the artifact.

Temperature sensitive

A painting or a relic does not like fluctuating temperatures. The paints and the canvas all get damaged because of a sudden change in temperature. Keep paintings covered with an acid-free cloth. So whatever the temperature, no harm is done to it.

Professional packing services

The big players like UPS, FedEx and TPCIndia all have their own ways of handling fragile goods. Depending on the weight, size and storage material used, you can get assistance to transport your goods from point A to B.

Move to a Storage Unit

The final option for you is a warehouse storage in Mumbai, if you plan to keep your art in storage for an extended period of time.

We are materialistic beings. We keep wanting things to better our lives. I mean who wouldn’t want an automatic coffee maker that brews a fresh pot every two hours, or an office storage service that organizes itself? There are innumerable products out there, which ease our concern for clutter. But in fact, these are major roadblocks, and affect our productivity. It is the harsh truth. You need to get straight to dumping the mess out.

So with a little bit of help, your home office can be just as organized, tidy and easy to navigate just like your home. So strap on your helmet and get ready to ride this roller-coaster.

The must haves

When designing your office, space is your biggest enemy. Everything and anything eats up space greedily. Therefore, what you must do is make a list of the essentials for your office to be functional. One will need filing cabinets, shelves, adequate lighting, and a work table to keep the laptop, a notepad and a pen to be able to spread out project work and comfortable seating for the employees. Think minimal, think productive.

Storage is the key

Like we covered earlier, one must straighten up the office in terms of storage. Sometimes the office is not welcoming when you find things just being thrown out in disarray. The key to making things easier is to delegate space for your things. With the help of an office storage service, you save a lot of time and effort. You become more efficient and have things available on the go. Follow a system that works for you, otherwise there will be a lot of clutter and that will lead to depression and increase levels in stress. Follow the old adage – a place for everything and everything in its place.

Reward for cleanest desk

The desk – where the magic will happen needs to be inviting. Here you have your laptop, your scribble pad and a pen. You keep your current projects and bills that need to be paid. So in fact, it is a high traffic area 24/7. Therefore you need to have this place in tip-top shape otherwise it will hamper your productivity. Have a checklist of your daily activities. At the end of each night, before wrapping, up see what needs to be done for the next day and store your clutter away from the work desk.

The need for office supplies

Stationary adds vibrancy in a dull office. Nowadays you get tons of cool stationary items online. Pick a few of them and bring them to your office. Always have a backup of things when you run out of stationary. Invest in smaller drawers, baskets, pencil holders etc. Don’t let a cool idea slip away from your head. In fact carry a pen in every pocket you have on you.

Go current

Adopting the minimal approach does work wonders. A simple rule you should follow: If it’s not current, store it somewhere else. Out of sight is out of mind. It doesn’t take much of your time, all you need to do is keep it simple.

Feel light

How can you forget having the right lighting in the room? That would be an absolute sacrilege. Installing the correct light setting in your room makes it look comfortable. Add a yellow desk lamp, so you don’t need to squint when reading an important document. A recent study shows that adding small lamps (3-4), you let your mind relax and makes you happy and content. Try it! Light up your office. See and feel the change.

This is only a small change at the surface. There are so many other ways where one can breathe fresh air in your office. Add a funky looking clock, maybe install new curtains, and add a few paintings, signage on the walls. We would love to hear your office décor thoughts too. No idea is a bad idea.

Easy Diwali Home Cleaning Tips

The festival of lights, brightness and happiness is upon us! Go into each corridor and you get a lovely aroma of freshly made sweets, bright coloured paints and crisply ironed clothes.
Well, a neat and clean looking home is always welcoming to the Gods during Diwali. So in the midst of reaching out, it is time to get your home organised for the festivities.

Release Clutter

Diwali time is family time. But alas, over the current year homes have got smaller and smaller due to the hoarding mentality. Humans get attached to inanimate objects, one reason being, they have paid so much for it, it can be used by someone else later. Good clothing bought for a family occasion is now lying deep inside the cupboard. It was only used once. Mom may have stocked few of her masalas over a period of time, which has stained the cabinets, and old jars are now turning yellow. It is best practice to keep a few and chuck out the rest. You’ll find more space, cleaner cabinets and a sweeter celebration, that is GUARANTEED!

Vaccum and Floor Cleaning

However good you’re at cleaning and making your home spotless before Diwali, dust settles. Dust is the worst enemy and a real task to get rid of. A quick use of the vaccum cleaner over your carpet, sofa and other décor will maintain your cleanliness and a simple way to get your home organization in place. Of course, once you’re done with that, a full sweep of the house followed by swabbing is recommended, to kill the germs and make your house glisten like natural diyas.

Start Decorating

Now with all the muck taken away after hours of hard work, it is time to add life to your home. Take out your décor boxes from the attic or storage room and begin. Everyone is tech savvy these days, and e-commerce sites are attracting a lot of buyers with great deals. Make use of that, get in the new & do away with the old. The freshly bought bedsheets and curtains will bring a feeling of newness and life into your house. Set your diyas and rangoli art at the foot of your entrance and in smaller comfortable corners. They will definitely add light to your beautiful homes. Add Diwali decals to your freshly painted walls, give it a personality. Dress your sofas with new prints. There is so much one can do! A little bit of imagination and a whole lot of madness.

Minimum Is Best

Minimum is the way to go. It not only looks great on the eyes but also it will help in saving you time and effort when you repack the items. Diwali is about spreading light into dark spaces to drive the evil away, then why clutter with more clutter?

If you look online, we bet you might get more ideas on Diwali home organization. We have covered the hot traffic areas for you and hope not to have skipped a spot (no pun intended).

Organising The Perfect Library In Pune

Novels and story books take you out of reality and let you dream with your eyes wide open. There is something so calming yet exhilarating when one reads an engrossing novel. Each novel has a memory attached to it, but also takes space in your bedroom or living room. So how do you keep your favourite novels intact and yet make space for more?

In this week’s article, we will give you some simple home library organisation tips and tricks that will appeal to your aesthetic as well as emotional senses all at one go.

So before you pick on a strategy to organise your library in Pune, one must get down to the nitty gritty of the task.

Follow this simple checklist:
a) How many books there are that need to be organized?
b) How much shelf space there is for all of the books?
c) How often will you make a purchase of new books?

Once these answers get clear in your head, you can go forward with the planning of your library.

The reason behind doing this exercise is that, you will get a sense of how to organise, whether you need an extra shelf to be built and so on. More so when you’re half way done, you will start making changes.

So now on to the different methods of storing your books.

Go ABCD route

The first thing we learn in school is the ABCD i.e. the English alphabets. This strategy is commonly employed by many across the globe. It is an easy and efficient way to organize your books so you don’t need to waste time looking for it. But one must decide which way to organise; either auhor’s name or in terms of the book name. Putting books in alphabetical order based on the last letter of an author’s name in a title helps make a shelf look more oddly arranged. Now if you do use this method, you must have a good memory you can rely on. Imagine having placed books where the author’s name starts with a T or a P and is silent. Instant hara-kiri. This method of book organisation is very reliable and as simple as A for apple.

Title is important

When we say title, we do not mean British Royalty like “Sir”, “Madame” et al, in fact we show respect to the author’s title. Yes, many readers remember the book titles easier than their author’s name. Go do a quick survey and you won’t be disappointed. Approach your bookshelves as if they are a table you are arranging for a large gathering – you would be a bad host indeed if you purposely placed foes next to each other and ex-lovers right across the table from one another. Books are also paired like a good wine and a little bit of cheese.

Colour me silly

Sometimes a book/novel can be boring and story just redundant; but one buys the book because of the cover page. Colour in psychology terms plays a vital role when reading a book. In fact many a times, if a reader wants to read something soothing, she will pick a blue coloured novel, just to release the stress. This type of book organisation in Pune, appeals to the aesthetic side of your brain. It will look pleasing to the eye, even though the books are placed in a chaos. One will find a romantic novel beside a murder mystery, (hey wouldn’t that be an excellent movie). You can create your very own man made rainbow in the living room.
The other sub method in this type is to group them by weight or size, where one keeps the heavier books at the foot of the bookshelf and lighter and easily accessible books at arm’s length.

There are other several ways one can make a library look neat and welcoming. We would love to hear your ideas as well. Post your ideas in the comment section below and maybe you could win an award! (Yes, we do give out awards too)

So what’s keeping you here, go create your very own novel library.

Bringing You Top Drawer Organisation

As an art director, or for that matter working in the creative line, you definitely see the world differently. Everything around you in perfectly placed in design and balances out. This same principle is used when it comes to organizing your office/work space and more importantly you drawer.

Visit any creative boutique and you will see how creative people have their things in order. It may look beautiful and it can also look ugly to a neutral but has some sense. One will find everything needed on their desk and soft boards. But when have you organized those knick knacks in your office drawer. Many a times, people discount the space use in a drawer. It could be a murder scene when one dumps everything in it.

Here are some helpful hints for keeping what you store behind closed drawers easily accessible and organized.

Clean up the drawers

Survey your drawer size in depth and length. For that you need to remove everything from in it and give it a nice wash over with a dry cloth. There is nothing better than to start from scratch. While the drawer gets to air out, make a check-list of the things you need in your drawer and dump out the rest.

Line up the drawers

As we said before you must know what needs to go into the drawer. Chart out a plan in your head and work towards it. See how you can use the space in the right manner and how easy it is to access the things at any given time. Office drawers require different types of liners depending on the need of the individual.

Follow a system

The next step you follow is to understand a system of organization and placement. Think of it as visual merchandising. What would you use frequently; things need to catch your eye easily and quickly. Choose a system that talk about functionality. Office D=drawer organization can be used from everyday materials such as woven fibers, fabric or wood. Why choose these materials, because they are less likely to get damaged or worn out.

Start to compartmentalise

Finally, you get to the meat of this exercise. C-O-M-P-A-R-T-M-E-N-A-L-I-S-A-T-I-O-N. Once you check with your blueprint, start implementing it one section at a time. As we mentioned before, you gain quick accessibility to your supplies, when you need it. Believe us when we say, you save a chunk of time when things are organised in the office. Everything is in its place and can be found any time and replaced immediately after you make use of it.

We would also love to see what office storage innovations you can come up with. It is important to take the first step towards this small change. The idea is to get things into shape. Break down your tasks into smaller milestones and move forward. You never know when you can hit the sweet spot.
