Closet Organization

the weather has been consistently warming up lately and all I can think about is light weight shirts, skirts, and dresses.  Since I usually do a bi-annual closet purge ( once in the fall, the next in the spring), I think I may add closet organization to my list of things to tackle this week.  

While I'd love for my closet to look like this:

It currently looks like this:

It's not as large as I'd like ( there's another part to it, about the same size), but I'm hoping to get Alaa to build some custom shelving to help me out a bit. Currently, I'm using a book case ( pictured above) to showcase the shoes I wear most often.  My other shoes are on a shoe rack tucked away.

I've started using my clothes to style my house. It's a great way to jazz up the rooms, and give me a bit more space in my closet.  Here's a picture of a few of my favorite shoes lining the jacuzzi.  How fun would it be to have all of my favorite shoes lining the perimeter of the tub?  I may have to give it a shot!

I've decided that before I actually start sorting through my clothes, I'm going to make out a list of things that I hope to wear in the spring.  I think this will help me decide what to keep, what to throw out, and what I need to buy.  I'll let you know how it goes!

and finally, here's a little closet mood board i put together

any tips on closet organization?  i'm a sucker for those things!


  1. Even though I am short on closer-organizing ideas, dimly love your collection of shoes Nuha.

  2. That closet is really beautiful! I like the cream and green together.. very soothing.

  3. I had to done SEVERAL purges this year because of my move. I got rid of anything that I hadn't worn for a few months, anything with a faded color or had those weird little balls coming out of it (you know what I'm talking about? This happens with sweaters a lot). I also color-coordinated everything after and itemized them (like shirts then tops then blouses then trousers etc.) Hope that's helpful. Can't wait to see the 'after' pics! x

  4. Great ideas! I definitely need to do a closet purge! I have way too much stuff I don't wear because I completely forget about it! lol


  5. My closet is terrible, so overflowing with things. I need to go through it once again and have a clear!! The amount of dresses I have is getting silly, but I do love them, haha!! Thank you so much for the super sweet comment, I really appreciate it!! I hope you are doing fantastic & am following you doll, enjoyed your page :)) xo

  6. OMG I love your blog so much!! *___* And thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment! :)

  7. I totally understand you, me closet it a little cramped too, but someday....

  8. You should get one of those wall cubbies from Ikea, saves so much space and it's great storage for jewelry/ shoes. Walls shouldn't be forgotten, they are valuable!

  9. My closet looks definitely worse than yours!! I have to do something abut it!!

  10. My wardrobes are teeny tiny! When we moved I tried persuade the bf to let me have the spare bedroom as a walk in wardrobe. It didn't work =( I'm slowly changing it into one though =p It will be my room soon!

  11. I need to get on the closet rearrange and organize train right along with you! Especially with spring coming up!
    Love you closet mood board! What a great layout!

  14. Oh wow, you've such a great blog! i love your style and also all your other posts, they are very interesting!
    I'd also love to have a closet like the one in the first photo, but well, at the moment I just don't have enough space for it. But I fullfilled my dream by creating a little "getting dressed section" with an expedit from ikea in front of an amoire and a hanger (is it the right word? sorry i couldn't find it, a rack perhaps?), and so I'm already very proud of my tiny little "walk-in closet", nothing compared to the dream closet in the photo of course ;-)
