How I Clean & Store My Winter Clothes & Boots

ClosetMaid system (see all configurations), petite-friendly 14″ hangers, overhead / underbed storage bins (also sold here) After a lot of time spent indoors and the arrival of warmer weather (although what’s this I hear about snow tonight?!), I started doing my seasonal storage swap.

How to Create a Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe I’ve been into capsule wardrobes for quite some time now. I think my interest for them started when I was reading the book Zero Waste Home (great book, by the way!) and I learnt that Bea Johnson’s and her family members’ capsule wardrobes all fit in a carry-on suitcase each!

Last week after I revealed my shoe shelves and hanging hat storage, many of you asked where I keep the rest of my accessories and clothing

Drumroll please… In this custom built-in closet! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to post a full reveal of this wall of my office. Maybe because it rarely looks this pretty and organized? Believe it or not, Nick and I actually designed and assembled these IKEA Pax wardrobes ourselves after ordering all the necessary components online. On the IKEA website you can create a 3D mockup of your future wardrobe that lets you see all the different drawer types, hanging rods, shelves, baskets and more.
