I love when pieces of furniture are used in a creative way. These glass front display cabinets are no exception. They work so beautifully as shoe organizers:

A creative way to house a wardrobe, this DIY cabana closet was made by repurposing a bakers rack and sewing a custom cover using inexpensive striped fabric. Looks pretty great don’t you think?
From Samantha and Lindsey’s bright beach cottage. See the rest of it here.
Welcome back! Hope you had a great weekend! Did you get a chance to flip through the new issue of Lonny yet? As always has lots of great content and eye candy, including this closet with shelves painted a beautiful peacock blue:
Paint is such a great inexpenisve way to make a closet unique and give it personality. A few more painted closets for inspiration:

How great is this walk-in closet?
Loving how everything is so perfectly folded, hung and arranged by type and color. Definitely a thing of luxury to have that much space (and that many clothes and shoes!)

The above bedroom is by designer Adrienne Neff. She used California Closets custom units to create one side with hanging rods and drawers below, plus a tie rack; and the other side with shelves and vertical hanging space for dresses. Shelves above the bed provide a space for off-season clothing. The side storage is concealed with felt cutains suspened from a track, while the shelves above the bed are concealed with a linen-blend roman shade. The custom headboard, the rich chocolate brown paint that matches the shelving, and the swing arm sconces, keep it from having a “living in a closet” feel.
This bedroom is by Sherry and John of Young House Love. They used two Ikea wardrobes on either side of the bed. One for her, one for him, each customized with drawers and rods and hidden behind white curtains hung high. A valance gives it a finished effect and makes it feel like the bed is tucked into a built-in nook.
My dressing area is set up like my personal boutique with everything organized and displayed beautifully. This Lack bookcase from Ikea fits three pairs across perfectly, and there’s room in the back for my special occassion shoes stored in their original box. Positioning the shoes front to back saves space. Off-season shoes are put away to give more room and so I’m not distracted by ones I can’t wear now.
