How to label when you don’t want to look at labels.

Without labels,  miscellany will surely creep in, rendering the most elegant of containers clutter catch-alls.  But, we don’t alway want big tacky labels turning our spaces into kindergarten rooms.  This is why I often cut little custom labels out of white tape to place on the top edge of a drawer.  I’ve done it here with my client’s tall English antique chest of drawers.  One would never know that it is essentially an office storage cabinet.  This also has worked well for deep kitchen and closet drawers.  Where in your home or office can you benefit from this dainty, inconspicuous labels?  Share in the comments below.
