Sexy Storage

New year, fresh perspective… Let’s get organized, darlings!
Andover Jewelry Box, at potterybarn.com.
Lacquer box from westelm.com.
For the gents: Deluxe Valet, at redenvelope.com. CC bought a monogrammed one for DG recently!
Uten.Silo, at conranusa.com.
Clear acrylic Format tray, at cb2.com. Stack them in your closet for scarf storage, darlings!
Clear shoe bins, at westelm.com. CC uses oversize Tupperware with Polaroids on the end for under-bed storage…
For longer chunkier necklaces use a coat rack like this scroll metal multi hook from Urban Outfitters.

Lace pedestal jewelry stand, at urbanoutfitters.com.

Use decorative plates or china bowls to hold odds and ends on your dresser. This one is from urbanoutfitters.com.
Dessert plate; this and next at anthropologie.com.
Ikat bowl.
Bergen Closet Collection, at westelm.com.
Repurpose a narrow candle stick to store bangles. Nidaros candle stick, at anthropologie.com.
Wrap belts around a cylindrical hurricane lamp like this one from the Conran Shop. Visit conranusa.com for this and next.
Use a pencil holder for eye liner and makeup brushes. Alessi Trina pencil holder.
Darlings, please share your storage secrets in the comments section! What makes your closet or bureau chic?

I definitely need some help organizing my things. I can never find anything. This post reminded me that I need to buy another jewelry box. I got mine at pottery barn, but it isn't the one you have pictured. It is a big leather one in white. I love your clear boxes idea though. xoxo

Sentiments after my own heart- feminine and meticulously organised ;) I'm having a sort out too, never could decide on the best way to store pasties!

alexkeller said...

i think i have that same pottery barn box from last year...my fav thing i did to my closet is those huggable hangers. they claim to make more space in your closet. i tried some, they DO make more space, so i switched everything over (gradually). and now i'm out of room again...hubby won't let me add on to the house for a room sized closet. ha!

Hanako66 said...
