Garance Doré | Gleaming Primrose Mirror from Anthropologie | Festen architecture, Bianca Wippe

Don’t underestimate the power of large and intriguing mirrors to add more light to a space, as well as to ramp up the glam factor.

Smoke and Mirrors

Apart from being practical in the bedroom, oversized leaning mirrors serve a decorative purpose as well, immediately making a space lighter and appear bigger. Take your style into account when choosing a frame, as this object will draw attention rather quickly when entering the room.

Hung up

Garment rails, also known as clothing rails, are an easy and effective way of creating more hanging space. You can either invest in a rail with wheels or without, whatever is easiest to maneuver around the room, depending on its purpose. “A wall-mounted rail increases storage space without taking up valuable floor space.” – Clothing Rails eBay


Hanging rails and hanging racks are a convenient way to get your clothes in order. Furthermore, they need not be expensive.

How To Put Together A Stylish Open Closet by Le Fashion

Start by adding a small selection of your favourite pieces from your wardrobe like classic tops, jackets, jeans and pants.

Next, drape a mix of your go-to accessories including a selection of hats, bags and scarves. The key is to make sure that all your picks complement each other to some extent for a more cohesive look.

To complete the space, add simple storage trays to showcase your best jewellery, a few fashion books for inspiration, and an interesting rug where you can line up your top shoe picks.

Oh, and don’t forget to keep an instant camera handy, so that you can capture and keep track of all of your best looks for easier dressing in the future!
