The Maxwell Moment: Home Office Organization

http://Brini.TV ► Ask Brini Maxwell anything at ► 

A few weeks ago I showed you my new office space. This week I'm giving you a few office organizing tips. One of the most useful things I did was to place a secondary work surface in the top drawer of my desk. It gives me a second writing surface and also acts as a support for my arm when using my computer mouse. Another thing I did with those drawers is line them with vintage wallpaper. The pretty pattern is a nice surprise when you open the drawer. To maximize that I use clear plastic drawerganizers so you can see the pattern through the bottom of them. In my closet, I put an Elfa file cart with storage under it. It's really all I need and saves space compared to a big, bulky file cabinet. Last, but not least, my secondary work surface is a drop-down desk that has plenty of space for writing letters. The desk also has built-in storage and I've placed an outlet in the wall inside it, so I didn't have to drill a hole through the piece to plug in the little light fixture I put in there... or my laptop computer.

Making the most of your storage and work space is important in a small home office. Prior planning is essential. If you work it out in advance your office will be a happy place to work!

Why didn't you think of that?

Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950's nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.

The Brini Maxwell Show

The pilot for the original show was produced in 1996. The show debuted on Manhattan Neighborhood Network on January 1, 1998, and aired for 5 years featuring tips, recipes, entertaining ideas, craft projects, home renovation and interior design schemes. It was produced by Sander's production company V.R.U.S.P. Inc. and directed by Sander's mother, Mary Jane Wells.

In 2001 Sander was contacted by Amy Briamonte, east coast director of development for west coast based Termite Art Productions (now Creative Differences Productions). Briamonte and Sander developed a pitch for the show for the Bravo network and received an order for a pilot. The pilot was produced in the summer of 2002 for a show titled Charming, Needs Work. The premise for the show was Maxwell lived in an apartment that she redecorated every week. After Bravo passed on the show Briamonte, Sander and Termite Art pitched it to Stephen Schwartz and Heather Moran, newly named VP's of programming for the Style network. The pitch resulted in an order for a 13-episode season.

The first season of The Brini Maxwell Show for the Style network was taped in the summer of 2003 with studio production taking place on the main stage at Unitel Studios on west 57th St. in New York City. Location shoots for the season were taped over a period of 6 months in New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
