How Laura Organizes Her Shoes

This month’s first guest participating in the ‘How I Organize’ series is the incredibly chic Laura of Laura Cattano Organizational Design and of the blog The Order Obsessed. She shows us how she beautifully organizes her shoes in her dressing area :

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.

Moldings as Shoe Racks

Rows of picture rail or ornamental molding work beautifully as a fun way to creatively arrange and display high heels in a closet or dressing room.

Photograph Labeled Shoe Boxes

If you like to store your shoes in boxes, it’s a good idea to label them to allow for easy identification. Photograph labels are my favorite. Simple snapshots adhered onto the boxes will do, but if you want to step it up a notch, how about taking up-close detail shots of the shoes and sticking them onto pretty kraft paper tags, like this:

If photography isn’t your strong suit, you can try searching online for your shoes. Companies usually include high quality photographs in their product pages and you can print those out to use for your labels.

Shoe Ottoman

Ottomans are so great because they often serve double (or triple) duty. I love that this one is secretly outfitted with 16 pockets for storing shoes (or other things!) and is lined with a pretty fabric that adds such a fun unexpected punch of color.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is from Caroline‘s tiny 475 sqft studio apartment. I love how she maximized storage potential by using over the door shoe racks to organize her collection of shoes. Don’t they look so pretty arranged by color?
