One of the items on my to do list for the New Year was organize my office, including my shoe and purse closet. One of my first projects when we bought the house was to turn the closet in my office into a shoe and purse closet. It is a great space and makes getting dressed much easier in the morning not having to look for shoes. This past weekend I spent a whole afternoon weeding through the unworn shoes, stuffing purses to keep their shape and cleaning all the leather with non-alcohol baby wipes. Above is a photo of the finished product. I am thinking of panting the inside a color for some interest, but plain white does not distract from the shoes. I also pulled some tear images I had of some other great shoe closets.
These are individually stuffed shoes. I did not take my closet this far.
Here is Donatella Versace's closet from an old InStyle magazine. She had an equally wonderful purse closet.
This women built cabinets in her bathroom to store all her shoes. I love the library ladder, but wonder what the humidity would do to the shoes.
