a peek in my tiny closet

There have been alot of FABULOUS closets being shown this month on my favorite blogs.. I'll warn you now, mines not fabulous-



It's tiny. And two of us share it! In the past few years I have pared down my clothes, limiting the pieces I buy and styles I wear-


It's just finally organized again. My mother in law gave me a box of wood hangers for christmas ( awesome! ), and those alone make my clothes and closet feel rejuvenated!



It was lovely to reorganize clothes by work/ casual & athletic, color, and get all accessories back together-

I can only have one season at a time in there.. the off season gets stored in C's room ( it sort of sounds like I have alot of clothes, I don't.. it's just that small of a closet :)


Everything in it's space, sigh


I love to have my spaces organized :)

I am looking for a great pair of shoes for everyday use this spring/summer...do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

LatteLisa said...

let me say that this is just lovely; I like seeing how 'normal' people live ;-)

love how you have organised everything!

Wow this is so neat! I am jealous! Mine is hurled in the wardrobe and the door is shut quick. Clever how you have stacked your shoes upright in shoeboxes ~ I haven't seen that before and it saves so much space. My wardrobe is tiny too, so I have full sympathies!

It looks like you have been extremely organized. I wish I could be that organized. I get half way through my cupboard and then I have had enough. I can never keep on top of it. But it is so refreshing when I tidy even a little bit. I Love sorting things into colours and having the same hangers always helps. I just picked up some more like yours from Ikea on the weekend. I can never have enough.

I feel your pain... I have the worlds smallest closet! Mine is no where near photo worthy . You have inspired me to tackle it... One day ...in the near future... Happy Monday! -Ann

I love having peaks into closets! So much fun. Yours is so organized. I'm impressed!

Staley Mc said...

I love peaking into other peoples closet! I wish I had all wood hangers, it just looks so nice!

christine {bijouandboheme} said...

I'm so jealous! My master closet is small too and it's a total disaster-full of wire hangers and way way too much stuff. Congrats on getting yours done- it looks fabulous.

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Well, if it is tiny it is certainly beautifully organized! I've been paring down what I keep, clothes, but mine is still a huge mess! Hopefully that will be a project to tackle this year! Janell

Beautiful closet! The wooden hangers make the space so chic! Great idea.

A Delightful Design said...

This is just my style. It actually feels calming to look at! I bet it feels great to finish this.

i need to get my closet organized. i love the wooden hangers, i definitely need to get me some of those! your closet looks great, must feel so good when getting dressed in the morning!

jen e. said...

I love your closet...just proves that you don't need a large space for it to feel fabulous! You have inspired me!-we are lucky to have a large walk through closet, and it has always been boring and not a space that I enjoy spending time...that is going to change!!

Brooke @ Blueprint Bliss said...

It looks great. I think I might need to store my flats like that in a shoebox. What a great idea!

liza said...

Ahhh, it looks great. It is amazing what matching wood hangers can do for you!

Jordin- I Love That! said...

Looks great! I really need to do mine and get rid of some junk! Is that yellow striped shirt from Old Navy? I have the same one and in navy too. Great job!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

I've also been cleaning out my closet - things are getting tossed, must be a January post holiday thing. Even when it's organized my clothes never look as tidy hanging up as yours. It looks like a clothing rack at a department store :)

Melissa @ Veranda Interiors said...

I still think it is pretty fab if you ask me!! xo

Jan said...

I would love to see the before and after photos (thank you very much!) ... such a great share! I want to visit all those other sites too. But barring that I may just have to take a photo of my and my partner's unimpressive clothes closets ... and I don't believe that I'd bother with the aftershocks.

christine, just bella said...

I love the organization! It's amazing how tidy some nice wooden hangers make you closet look, hey?

Wallpaper said...

Your space looks wonderful, I love seeing everything organized!!

Ashly@Moon Walk said...

I think it looks pretty good. I really like the way you organize your shoes.

Sherri Cassara said...

It is perfect ... clean and neat! I like the way your put your shoes in the crisp white shoeboxes! Your wooden hangers are the best! I just found your blog... I am your new follower!

hilary b said...

This is so inspirational. I keep wearing the same thing that is easiest to pull out of my closet (which is full of things that don't fit thanks to post-pregnancy). I think I'll give this a try when we start Spring 2011. Only a few more snow storms to go!

ASHLEY said...

love matching hangers! Our closet is too big! No really, it needs major shelving and organization. It's just one big room with tacky white wire shelves. It's definitely something I want to redo. I love how you organize!

paula said...

you just confirmed it... wooden hangers are being put into the budget. so pretty.

designchic said...

What a wonderful closet...nothing quite like wooden hangers to make everything look uniform and organized!!

Marianne (Style For Living) said...

Sarah, your closet is perfect. I love how you store your flats. I'm stealing that idea for my own closet! And the wood hangers, I really need them too!

Sarah said...

Wooden hangers are the best! I used to work for a closet design company, so since then, I organize by blouse, sweater, trouser, etc. and all wooden hangers or velvet hangers. So pretty and better organized for figuring out what to wear every day!! :))

Sara Mueller said...

I love the wooden hangers. I love that your closet looks normal in the good sense of the word. And you have some beautiful things. I see that you have some Club Monaco blouses and I am visiting them soon and I can't wait to see what I find.

My Many Moments said...

I think your closet is perfect! I love your Tory Burch flats and how organized your shirts are! Thanks for sharring,
Heather

Kelle Dame said...

Don't hangers make such a huge difference!? Somehow they make any piece of clothing look more expensive. I love what you have done! I hope to get to my own closet soon :)

ashley cooper said...

Sarah it looks FABULOUS! You are so organized and you have some amazing pieces in your wardrobe. I notice some LV, Tory Burch, Burberry and possibly some cashmere. Your so classy!!! xoxo

Julie said...

I love love your closet .... and I want to see what's in it! Great stuff!

Camille @ The Vintique Object said...

I love that you are keeping things down to basics. Recently, I read the an article in House Beautiful about a couple and their young child who share a one bedroom in NY. Both couple shared a teensy closet, and the woman kept only a small classic wardrobe. Gosh, I'd love that. If only I could figure out what that means!

shopgirl said...

That was so much fun Sarah! Thanks for sharing your closet! I think it looks great!

Have a lovely day sweetie!
