An Organized Closet Armoire

organized-closet-armoire

This little armoire closet is so perfectly organized. Shelves maximize vertical space. Dividers on the shelves keep sweater piles from toppling over onto each other. Shoe cubbies allow frequently used shoes to be organized yet accessible.  Clear shoe boxes keep special shoes (or less frequently used shoes) protected yet visible.  A box with drawers contains small items. Hooks on the doors create a perfect spot for hanging belts, scarves, and even a lint roller, which is always nice to have handy.

A Glamorous Dressing Room

Absolutely loving this beautifully organized dressing room from the home of Rita Hazan:

dressing-room-vanity&shoeshelves

 Shoes are neatly arranged on white open shelves (from Ikea!) and beauty essentials are on a glamorous mirrored vanity

A stylish modern black platter helps keep things organized.

 Such much goodness here – the big window with floor to ceiling drapes, the tufted daybead, the unique gold wall studs, the brass glass pendant…

Picks from Zara Home

Back when I was studying abroad in Spain, I remember walking into a Zara Home store and feeling like a kid in a candy store. There were so many lovely decor items everywhere I turned. I was sad to find out though that there were no Zara Home locations in the US, and while that’s still the case, as of this month the line is now available online. I browsed the selection this morning, and found several great trays, boxes, bins and baskets for beautifully organizing the home:

1-phoebe wardrobe box, 2-beny tray, 3-nadia baskets, 4-rato tray, 5-frank tray, 6-lilli box, 7-ludwig baskets, 8-jens basket, 9-zafit tray, 10-jack box, 11-lisbeth basket

How Stephanie Organizes Her Handbags

Today we have blogger Stephanie Fisher of Glitter and Goat Cheese participating in the How I Organize series. She gives us a look at how she organizes her fabulous handbags:

I have to admit – I’ve always been the walk-in-and-throw-everything-on-the-floor type. My poor purses used to find themselves discarded on the floor on a daily basis. But when I became the proud owner of a chew-happy puppy with a penchant for raiding my bags, I knew it was time to find a better solution.

We rent a home without many built-in hanging solutions, so we utilize these over-the-door racks in several rooms. This particular one used to hold towels in our guest bathroom, but now it hangs in my office and is the home for my most-used handbags. (As you can probably tell – I have a bit of thing for black, gold and sequins.) The office is close to the front door, so it’s a quick, convenient spot to unload my purse before I head in to greet my puppy. Plus, I love that my favorite bags are on display instead of hidden in a closet!

Short on Space?

Do like Kelly and use a hanging organizer like this one:

The pockets are a good size for jewelry and other small accessories and they’re clear so you can quickly see what you have. Overall it takes up little room – perfect for small spaces!

Beautifully Organized Space: Accessories Closet

Check out this accessories closet:

Beautifully organized by Flavia of Lulu Abroad, who lined up her shoes on shelves by type, hung belts on a row of hooks, used frames for sunglasses and jewelry, and cubbies for handbags.

Functional and looks great too.  Nicely done!

Photo Labeled Hat Boxes

Photos are a great way to label the contents of a box. We’ve seen them used for organizing shoes, and this lovely example from Elsie of A Beautiful Mess shows them used for organizing hats:

p.s. find out how she DIY’d her boxes here!

Open Clothes Rack

A fun idea for clothing storage is utilizing an open rack.  It could be a nice spot for organizing outfits for the week or for an edited selection of favorite pieces that also serve as eye candy.  A little inspiration…

Find garment racks at stores like Ikea, Linens-N-Things, and the Container Store
