I recently participated in a video shoot for the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery Wall Manager, my new modular wall organization system sold exclusively at Staples. The video set in our New York studios was so compelling that I wanted to share some inspiring behind-the-scenes images and to tell you a little about the products.
Inspiration and creativity can be found everywhere at my offices and we often look to our talented employees for ideas and product expertise. Several of them were given Wall Managers to use in their own offices and homes. I’m sharing some of their ideas with you to show how easy it is to customize the system and organize clutter-prone areas. I urge you to purchase Wall Manager solutions and send photos of your configuration to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through April 13th, Wall Manager accessory boards are 40% off at Stapes stores and at Staples.com.
1 Here I am in front of the wall manager solution on set. I customized the design, so it’s tailored exactly to my needs.
2 The drawer set accessory can be added to stash small supplies like paper clips or even unique keepsakes.
3 I created a larger Wall Manager to showcase all the products I need horizontally above my desk.
4 The shelf accessory holds my brilliantly hued Martha Stewart Crafts paint supplies perfectly. Look how much space that saves on my desk!
5 Anduin Havens, Director of Special Events and Projects, put up this white wall manager in her office at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia to store tools and supplies.
6 I love the clean look of this entryway. Add hooks to your Wall Manager to hang keys and important items you need on the go. I’m also thrilled with the Martha Stewart Home Office tote hanging on the wall. Did you know it comes with a built in sleeve for your tablet or laptop?
7 This entry way set up incorporates drawers and caddies along with magnetic boards to shared schedules and reminders.
8 This versatile system can be combined in multiple ways, so it works well in any room of your house. Here’s one configuration for a little girl’s room. As kids grow from toddler to teen, the system will grow with them.
9 Don’t let kitchen clutter drive you up a wall. You need all the organization you can get in that space!
10 The easy-to-clean boards and accessories are ideal for splatter-prone spots in the kitchen. Wipe them clean and start again.
11 Click and lock accessories snap right into place on the accessory board rails, so you can put things right where you want them.
12 Another designer from my office, Lisa Yen, used two different set ups to cater to her pets and their needs.
13 Leslie Robertson on our Design team wanted additional desk space and added hers to the wall above her computer for storage.
14 The best news? All these solutions mount in minutes with just three easy steps. The accessories just snap into place!
15 Megen Lee, VP of Product Design, has the Wall Manager hanging in his office. It looks beautiful accessorized with many of our Martha Stewart Home Office products.
You couldn't have made it any easier to organize our trouble areas Martha. I love the versatility of the Wall Manager and you've designed it so smartly from the built in bubble level for ease of mounting to customizing the accessories like the drawers, shelves snd caddies, perfect!

Definitely going down to pick some up for my office. I have a wall that needs a finishing touch, not to mention can never be too organized. Sent a link to about eight of my friends as well. Love a good sale.

I really like this. I would prefer it in black since my office is done with furniture from IKEA in their brown/black finish. What a unique idea. I have a large wall over my desk which could handle a good deal of this sytem. Hmmm. I must look into this. I should give a fresh coat of paint to that wall and put up some of this and blog about it on my blog. Hopefully that will help get the word out so that others will buy it too.
This looks like your basic "slat wall" system I had in a retail store ten to twelve years ago. I always thought it should have been expanded for the home. It's a no brainer. In fact while remodeling a small bathroom around this same time I put up a 1/2 sheet behind the toilet and then added some accessories available at the time for shelves and had some custom glass cut as shelves for towels and all other stuff that needs a shelf. There were some metal baskets available at the time but it's nice to see someone actually expand the system for the home.
I ordered these items last night. I was super excited to use them but some of the accessories were sold out. I attempted to find out when they would be restocked. A staples associated informed me they will be discontinued. Super sad. I cancelled my order. They would have worked so beautifully.

Hi Martha, I need this. I'm a writer and I need to story-board a lot. A wall of cork would be perfect. I have a long table on one side of the room but it's limiting. I'm going to have to design with your ideas in mind. Notice I didn't say re-think my design. It's just a table from IKEA. I love it but it's tough to reach over so I think it's going to have to be used in another room. Thanks as usual.

Perfect timing as usual! Avery Wall Manager is a much needed solution for getting my Creative Spaces on track and organized.
One of our cats Tesla is very inquisitive, when it comes to placing things
on my corkboard he likes to re-arrange them so I need this in more ways than one because he has a twin sister MiMi who helps him.Thanks!

This is exactly what I've been looking for! I'm a scrapbook designer and I find inspiration in a multitude of things... and these things tend to pile up in my work space. Add to that four kids with busy schedules... you get the idea!
My professor Sandi J. Pinio, a professor from the Management 01, Principles of Management class used to said, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Martha writes “pay close attention to the text that accompanies each photograph” from Letter from Martha in “The Best of Martha Stewart Living Organizing, Special Collector’s Edition”.
