BACK TO BASICS


The New Year is all about creating a fresh start! With that in mind, it's the perfect time to make sure your closet is covered, and you have all the essentials to ensure your wardrobe is kept in perfect working order in the year to come. Clients often come to me for recommendations on the products I love to see in every closet. These are a few of the hand-picked necessities you should invest in, to keep your closet woes to a minimum in 2018!

Q: WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO STUFF BAGS AND SHOES SO THEY DON'T WRINKLE?

These items are often some of the largest investments in your wardrobe! Rather than letting them pile up on a shelf, your bags and shoes should have the proper inserts to help them maintain their shape. Purse pillows, boot trees, and shoe inserts will keep your pieces looking their best. (And for smaller bags, you can stuff them with their dust bags!)

Q: HOW DO I KEEP MY ACCESSORIES FROM GETTING LOST IN A DEEP CABINET?

Create a custom insert to ensure everything has a place! If you can't see it you won't wear it, so why not put the goods on display in a way that's both functional and beautiful?! Custom vanity trays can add much-needed efficiency for storing all your daily essentials in any space of the home!
