For me, organization is is usually about creating a pretty mess. Organization demands that I take something in a state chaos and create accessibility rather than order. If I can get at it quickly, then I consider it organized. If it's buried and I can't lay hands on it, then its time to clean up. Both of the spaces below are very different in style and level of organization, but I still consider them to be a pretty, well organized mess. I think they're lovely.
Just FYI - I've recently been browsing Reader's Digest
(of all places) for home decorating ideas
. They've got all sorts of sweet organization ideas and tips for getting everyday household items to serve double duty. It might help me out as I get my office in order.
