Interior Design | Closets and Racks

It’s been a while since my last interior inspiration post, so I decided to share with you some ideas regarding clothing and shoe storage and organization in forms of closets, racks and shelves via my Pinterest (you can follow me here).
For clothing racks: I particularly love the idea of hanging a very rustical-looking wooden stick or bamboo to your ceiling in order for it to function as a rack to hang your clothes. You can also do it with a slim metallic tube for a more minimalistic approach. Simply add pretty boxes or even an old trunk at the bottom to place some shoes and you have a beautiful rack.
Of course, there’s always the good ol’ metallic standing racks which come in minimalistic designs. I already got one from Ikea and I am planning to add graphic posters beside it or behind it and also lights or even a lamp to make it fun and at the same time illuminate the area so I can search for what I need when not enough light.
For shoes: You can use an old cupboard with glass doors of course in order to display them. Just paint it in a neutral shade and cover its inner walls with wallpaper in a bold colour and perhaps add some lights to illuminate the inside and voilá.
Another idea is to use a ladder to orderly hang the shoes on each step and this is a great alternative different to using Ikea’s Billy or book shelves, which surely saves more space. I especially love this one also because I am in love with a space saving ladder shelf from the new Ikea PS 2014 collection, where I can display my favourite shoes.
Walk In Closet: Shelves are always amazing not only to place books inside, but also basically for anything you need to stack, for instance shoes, tees, knits, jeans, and whatnot. Simply organize by category (knits, tees, etc), size, and colour. A ladder is more than useful to reach those high spots where you stack something and let’s not mention about what a great decorative element in can be, especially if rustical and textured.
If you want to add a beauty corner to your walk in closet, simply add a standing mirror or a wall mirror surrounded by light bulbs to illuminate when necessary and add a table, a bench or even a rustical wooden stool, and there you have it.
