Extreme closet makeover :)
A little piece of shoe heaven :)
Interior design advice: Wardrobes
It is said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If that’s the case then the way to a woman’s heart is through a really great wardrobe :) This famous area where we store both clothes and the odd skeleton or two exists in many guises, but not everyone is able to make an entire room into a walk-in closet ala Hollowood wives. So, if you’re not a Hollywood wife, you’ll have to make the best of the storage space you have in your house.
Here is some advice…
If you have a small living space, material can be a solution, and a heavy material connected to the ceiling works best. The good thing about material is that you can wash it and change it easily if you get tired of the colour. You can also match the walls with similar fabrics, which gives a feeling of luxury :)
A smart albeit more expensive variation are sliding doors: they look great and take very little space. There are also beds with storage underneath at Ikea – an excellent solution if you live in a studio apartment. Ikea also have their legendary book case “Billy”, which can easily be changed into a practical shelf for shoes. Just hook up with Billy and hey presto, new and fresh shoe wardrobe ala glamour :)
One final personal piece of advice from me is…CLEAN out all the old. You will never use that dress at the back that you bought in 2005 (even if you think you might :) Cleaning out old clothes is cleansing for the soul – a real Spring feng shui. Out with the old skeletons and in with the things you really use and need. There are lots of options when it comes to wardrobes. It’s just a matter of finding your personal favourite :)
Which one is yours?
