Inspiration to Create a Perfectly Organized Closet

Consider this a photo recap of just a few of my projects from 2012, with the intention to allow you to become inspired within your own homes beginning with the closet. Always remember your space is a part of your life and journey, meant to tell a story about yourself and those you share your home with. Every piece counts. Creating simplicity, organization and getting creative with incorporating the things you love into that space is so important! Maybe you are considering installing new shelving systems, similar to those pictured on the left. Maybe you're just starting the purging process or strolling through stores looking into options for becoming better organized. Regardless of the inspiration you find keep one thing in mind- keep it simple and take it one step at a time! 

Uniform hangers will make a world of difference in your closets as well as the right baskets, bins and shoe organizers. Before heading to stores EVALUATE what you have and what you will be letting go of to determine what is needed in terms of storage. It can be overwhelming to see so many different ways to store items, however having a clear vision for your closet space depends on the time put into maximizing the space!  

Utilize space saving uniform hangers and colorize your denim as well as tops and bottoms! This is a time saver when getting dressed. 

The hanger difference! Before and after!



Items I used to give the shelving a little boost and incorporate organization- basket and bin from Target and my favorite Martha Stewart labels from Avery.  Take the initiative to work through those sweaters, tank tops and t-shirts that are taking up shelving space!                                                                 Store them, colorized, in baskets to save yourself time. Use labels to identify the contents!

Yes you can use shelving for shoes! The shelving units shown here, in the top right photo, are from Ikea. Perfect solutions to display heels! Once the shoe boxes were gone I was able to maximize the space by using over the door shoe organizers as well as pant hangers to hang the boots. Keep it colorized and like with like to easily grab and go.
