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:

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.
Would you try this idea in your own home?
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.
A light and bright dressing room with a lovely vanity complete with lighting, a mirror, fresh flowers, and a stylish chair atop a plush mini rug…
…and a closet nook with shoes organized in stacked drop-front boxes and sunglasses cleverly hung on the door…
Beautiful, wouldn’t you agree?
