Open clothes storage

Posted on Thu, 21 Jan 2010 by KiM

We’ve gotten several emails lately from readers asking for us to post photos to help inspire on all sorts of subjects and I thought I’d take a stab at one of them today. We received this email from Harpa: “I was wondering if you have any pictures showing an open closet or some clothing rails in a bedroom? I’ll be redoing my bedroom soon (when my littlest one gets his own room) and I want to have a small rail out in the open for some of my nicer clothes, or to organise my work clothes for the week. Some inspirational pictures would be very helpful 🙂” To my surprise I had a hard time finding photos in my stash for this one but I was intrigued to find some because I hope to redo my dressing room in the near future (how long have I been saying that? LOL) and my father is trying to convince me to have everything exposed (except maybe a bin or drawers for unmentionables). I’ve included some photos that feature something other than bars or open closets to give some other ideas for exposing clothing as well (ie. round rack, hooks, cute armoire whose doors could be removed).

Emily’s bedroom dilemma

Posted on Tue, 5 Jan 2010 by KiM

I mentionned in my post on Christmas Eve that Emily was looking for some help with her bedroom but that things were too nuts at the time for me to go through my vast photo stash. Well, things are slightly less nuts now so I thought I’d finally help her out. Here’s what she wrote us: “Here’s my dilemma…my bedroom is set up where the best place for the bed is in front of a window. The window is about the exact width of the bed. I would really like to have a headboard on my bed and drapes on the window, but I’m having trouble figuring out the best way to do that. I need ideas!! Could you possibly post a group of shots showcasing beds with headboards in front of windows?” I found quite a few images that should help provide a bit of inspiration. Personally I think headboards are overrated, especially in the case when the bed sits in front of a window which acts as a headboard. I think hanging flowy drapes and hooking them on each side frames a bed-in-a-window quite nicely and omits the need for a headboard. But that’s just me. Or do nothing but stick your bed in place. As you’ll see below, that works too.
