Hanging and folding clothes is not my forte.  In fact, I try to avoid laundry at all costs.  I love to clean and mop and dust and decorate…I just really, really hate laundry.  Can anyone else relate?  With that in mind I am constantly looking for easy ways to organize clothes – making the transition from the dryer to the closet seamless and if possible skipping the whole folding thing all together.  We’re in an apartment for the time being so for now space is an issue too.  If you’re in a flat or studio apartment then creating a closet space is really the biggest challenge.  Here are some great clothing storage solutions for any type of home and for anyone who hates folding as much as I do!

I love this because traditionally if you’re in an apartment you’re stuck with white walls.  Hanging your clothes is plain site brings in a lot of color and texture and besides, what could be easier than standing up on your bed and deciding what to wear!

Whimsical and perfect for displaying clothes in a nursery or toddlers room.

My husband has a hundred hats and I find them laying all over the place which is why this set up would be great for him.  The idea of a shelf and hanging bar would be excellent for heels and skirts as well.  Displaying a picture over the clothes storage area completes the look.

Oh, IKEA…stop making things that I want to buy.

Closet systems are available everywhere and are relatively inexpensive.  This one is a shoe rack, dresser and hanging closet combined.  I love the colorful storage boxes; they give this a polished look.

This is a guys room down to every last detail.  The clothes are easily accessible and organized and they look perfect hanging in this space (which helps if you’re bringing a girl over).

I have to admit, this is one of my favorites.  All you need is some hardware and a corner.  Utilizes every inch of space which is vitally important when space is limited.

Vintage perfection.  You can find these salvaged pieces at any thrift shop and mimic the set up of any prefabricated storage system.  Love this.

Again, accessibility is key and with this you can go from the laundry basket to hanging in one step.  The natural look is nice here, too.

Finding creative ways to organize accessories can be challenging – all this is from a cork board!  Very cool.

Design Inspiration for Your Entryway…Tables and Storage

I have an entryway table that just never looks right.  It seems simple enough; a collection of vases, some pictures, a mirror maybe…but the real trick is knowing how to pull it all together and keep it that way.  It’s just a table, but it’s also the first thing people see when they walk into your home.  In my house it’s a dumping ground for keys and book bags and papers and despite my greatest efforts to keep it clutter free…clutter always finds its way back.  Here are a few entryway designs that I would love to try and recreate…not just for the style but for the practicality and storage space as well.

I really like the monochromatic look of this set up and how it allows the large portrait to take center stage. The big storage boxes would be great for umbrellas and rain boots and they really help balance everything out.

This is so beautiful and balanced but a little overcrowded.  To make this work, I would lose some of the smaller pieces in the front and add storage underneath.  I love the lamps.

Really great for an apartment or town home or any home that has limited space by the door.  The drawers are perfect for organization and the mirrors running up the wall make the space look much larger.

I adore the look of unfinished wood and the accompanying terracotta really adds to the earthiness of this design.  There’s something very peaceful about natural tones and bringing a bit of the outdoors in as you enter the home.  Again, good storage space with the drawers and basket underneath.

I did a post on dip dyed furniture and this is one of the pieces I featured.  I love it; it makes the table a focal point whether or not the surface is decorated.  Again, in the absence of drawers I would add storage underneath to keep the table clutter free.

When my kids grow up and move out I will have this table and just throw my stuff on the floor… : )
