hang your party heels like fine art

GET THE LOOK:

PHOTO LEDGES Typically used to display framed pictures, they can also be used to free up closet space and create an easy-access boudoir. To determine how much space to allocate between shelves, use your longest pair of shoes as a gauge. Home Gallery traditional ledges, from $35 each, exposuresonline.com

CUSTOMIZE IT!

Paint the ledges—and even the wall behind them—to define the area. (We used Benjamin Moore Sweet Innocence on the ledges and Misty Lilac on the wall.)

Add a special dress and chair: With these in the mix, a formerly dead space becomes an intimate dressing area.
