create a tidy and discreet shoe library

GET THE LOOK:

1. BOOKCASE Repurpose a standard open bookcase as a shoe rack. Make sure the shelves are at least a foot deep to accommodate the average shoe box. (Boot boxes are about twice that size and can be shelved sideways.) Billy bookcases, $50 each, ikea.com

2. MATCHING BOXES Stored in identical boxes in a calming hue, your eclectic shoe collection takes on a Zen-like order. Kvarnvik boxes, $10 each, ikea.com

3. CAMERA The fastest way to find the pair you’re looking for: Label the outward-facing end of each shoe box with a snapshot of the pair inside. (Shoot flats from above and heels in profile.)

4. CURTAINS AND ROD It’s a grown-up take on that old college trick: Just hide your stuff behind a curtain—in a weighty fabric, it’s surprisingly chic. Linden Street Ellis grommet window panel (40" x 84"), $18, jcp.com

 

CUSTOMIZE IT!

A white-and-cream palette in a mix of plush materials is an easy way to make any space look opulent.
