Moving to the suburbs has had many pros and cons. One of many welcome changes was getting more closet space. Somehow I got my husband to agree to letting me have the walk-in closet to myself (Another post on the power of persuasion might be in order!).
I have a lot of clothing, shoes, and accessories, so it’s important to stay organized. My closet always looks a little messier than most because of my affinity for color and patterns which are inherently busy.
Luckily, my friends at PB Teen offered to help organize the space with some of their closet organization tools (See our bedroom makeover from last year here). We teamed up again to give you three quick tips to organize your own closet. Check out the post on their blog too.
Tip 1: Showcase beautiful things
I purposely kept the left wall free for two nail-head shelves that house beautiful things. I like to be inspired in every room of my home (even the bathroom) and the closet is no exception! I’m sure the decor will change season to season but for now, I love displaying two Hermes boxes that house 2 very special gifts, a pretty vase with peonies, and perfume for a last-minute spritz. The 2nd shelf holds the two of my many bags that I’m currently using the most.
Tip 2: Hide that clutter
The gold and white storage bins on the top shelf hold things that I don’t need to reach on a daily basis like bathing suits, off-season clothing, and fancy clutches. I used to have them in bags or taking up valuable space in my dresser, so these bins made a huge difference. Plus they’re so chic.
Tip 3: Create more space for folded items
The rotating hanging storage is a life-saver because it can display my favorite sweaters for easy access. In the summer, I’ll swap them out for tank tops!
