Have you seen the new special issue on organizing from Martha Stewart? I was surprised to find two projects I produced years ago as the Senior Style Editor at Living. For a bathroom without shelves in an apartment above Martha’s carriage barn in Bedford, I had six brass shelf brackets nickel-plated, then paired them with lightweight lacquered trays for extra storage.
Peek-a-boo! I see me.
For the second project, I made a shelf and bench in studio using antique corbels from a salvage yard. How cute is my friend Austin’s poodle Matilda on the seat cushion?
I could have definitely used a manicure after this shoot.
And listen up, everyone! We’re doing a little early spring organizing in the prop house this month, so look for a tag sale in our Etsy shop with chic, vintage servingware and accessories from previous magazine shoots very soon!
I bought this issue of MS Organizing, and I am totally not surprised to see your projects in here! Your work and ideas are so incredible! Wishing you a wonderful week! Angie xo
Matilda is a doll, and great storage ideas never go out of style! I look forward to seeing what you’ll be letting go of in your Etsy shop.
You inspired me to do a white and green mudroom in my house too, with the baskets and riding boots tray. My mudroom is holding up very well still to this day! xo

Yes it’s on the shelf next to my desk! I love it and your great ideas!!
Love seeing these. You are one talented fellow. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com
Is there anything you CAN’T do Eddie? You are so talented! And that little dog is adorable!
Can’t wait to see what you have to offer in your prop shop!!! It looks like Martha is in need of your expertise. You would think by now she would have some new material. Goes to show, just how GOOD YOU are!! xoxo Kathysue
Good stuff doesn’t got out of style…does it?! Are you doing a “special” Easter table “spread” this year?? I “emulated” yours from last year and almost killed myself…but WE LOVED IT. franki
Terrific ideas, of course. I’m actually contemplating how to incorporate some shelving in my bar area for additional glasses. I like the idea of finding something older, it will look so much better that brand new shelving.
Looking forward to visiting the tag sale!
I tried to find this at my Books A Million today but couldn’t locate it. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Congrats on being included. Love those projects, by the way. And I’ll be checking out your Etsy shop. Best to you and J 🙂
Fun bathroom space. Love the high ceiling
Just re-did a closet too….you inspired us. It
was one of the last spaces needing a remodel in
this old home. Not as pretty as yours, but done.
What good ideas. I have stored the first project in my files for many months now and can’t wait to utilise the same ideas. I had no idea they were trays, I thought they were thick wooden planks painted gloss white.
1. I just saw the photos of your “prop house.”..drooling over heeja. 2a. LOVE that you guys are going Etsy! 2b. How can I register for early-bird VIP shopping?! 😉 3. I did see that issue and saw so many great ideas…it is NO surprise that you are the genius behind some of its content! XO
Great projects! Glad Martha brought them back for another visit. I completely thought that dog was a toy ;0
Love the bracketed shelf and bench. The pupster is so cute!!

It just goes to show that your work (and style) stands the test of time, even tho it was only 2 years ago, 😉
Matilda is a darling! As are your projects.
I need some serious organizing around here…..what great projects!
We based our mud room
addition on the very Matilda
shot that you feature, here!
It was my inspiration page
for our contractor : ) Wish
I could say I’d made the
corbels myself, but I’m not
nearly talented as you two
are. THANK YOU for the
inspiration ~ as always!
Didn’t know this issue existed!
Love the Corbel shelves and the lacquered trays on brackets…great ideas. Looking forward to your prop sale!
All beautiful! And love that great wicker basket in the mud room.
Can’t wait for your sale! You always have the best things and so my style! Hope you guys are well. Any chance you’re going to be in NYC around May 19-24? I’m coming for BlogFest and would love to finally meet you both in person if you’ll be in the city! xo
Just goes to show when something is good it’s worth recycling even for Martha.
You must have been able to decorate and re-do your new home on a real budget?
That is such the gift you give to all of us…
I bet her farm is amazing I use to drive by her Westport home all the time…
Those are some great ideas! Going shopping or at least checking out the goodies in your Etsy. Have a beautiful day designing.
I got this as a little Valentine’s Day gift from my husband when we saw it while grocery shopping – I’ve been slowly making my way through it – there are so many great images and ideas in it!
i think she is missing you……
Just proves that good ideas are timeless!
oh wow, I love how you used the corbels there! Brilliant. Your creativity never fails to amaze me.
Going to keep an eye on the Etsy shop!
An Eddie Ross tag sale?? I couldn’t be more excited! And oh my goodness Matilda is so precious and cute you almost think that she’s a stuffed animal!
Love this !
One…I remember those project and they were awesome ideas. Two…totally bummed I missed you in DC, but with a newborn my life is just a tad bit busy :). Hope all is well! xx Danielle
Fabulous as always !!!and the dog is adorable!!
I adore both the shelves and the mirror from the first photo! I love it when dogs are incorporated into interior shots. Much like flowers, they bring such life and warmth to a room! 🙂
i want to DIVE into these rooms! you are so incredibly talented & inspirational! come to my house? m’kay, thanks! 🙂
I love all of those ideas but the last one with the FABULOUS corbels is to die for!~ As always, you are awesome!
oh and btw, just like last time I sighed and ohhhed and ahhhhed over the goodies in your prop house! I love your white ware!
Martha must be begging you to come back! Admit it!
Hugs to you both.
Good ideas are timeless, ER, and these look great! And I love that bathroom mirror.
Perfect ideas for spring cleaning and organizing projects! Great job!
E+J- I clicked the link to the prop house article and loved it. The candles hanging and ready to go… So organized!
just goes to show that great style and fab ideas always seem fresh 🙂 best le xox
The projects are beautiful–well done! Just wanted to let you know I do enjoy all of the posts that you have at your blog–when I first “discovered” you online last year, I got sucked in, reading away, and didn’t emerge for a couple of days!
All things are beautiful and clean. I can’t wait to do it in my new house.
Eddie, just wanted to tell u that I simply think u are bloody amazing …LOVE LOVE the works u do… wished u lived in TORONTO(canada)If u ever come to TORONTO please keep us posted…
Just selected sconces very similar to those in the bathroom story for a project we’re working on right now. Some things never go out of style!
This is one of the most charming actconus of history that I’ve ever come across…..girly, you have charmed the little white work out socks right off me…. your grandparents, well it leaves me speechless, just like the miniature vignettes in your theater.Remember the scene in “Titanic” when Jack sneaks Kate down to steerage….they Irish dance all night long while Mr. and Mrs. prim and proper snore away upstairs…..I LOVED THIS SCENE…it transported me…
