You know what feeling when you’re browsing a beautifully arranged accessory section of your favorite store and you instantly want to buy all the things? You can recreate that feeling inside your own home, even if you’ve got a small space to work with.
First, scope out your space. Are you working with a top drawer, the top of a dresser, or a space inside a walk-in closet?
Remember these two keys as you plan your space: If possible, go vertical and go multi-functional. If you can utilize wall space, do it. If you can find a jewelry stand that will hold necklaces, earrings and rings, that’s like small-space gold. Here are some approaches boutique-ify some of your most common accessories:
If you’ve ever had that sinking feeling when you go to look through your necklaces and discover them all tangled up, this section is for you. A jewelry stand takes up very little real estate and can be a gorgeous way to not only show off your statement pieces, but easily take inventory of what you have.
Organize by color, chunkiness, length, or even by “everyday necklaces” and special occasion.
If there’s no space on your dresser or countertop for a stand, turn your wall into a work of jewelry art.
Bracelets, rings and earrings round out a jewelry display, and if you continue your organizational strategy throughout these smaller pieces, it’s easy to achieve a stylish, boutique look.
One approach is to hang your bracelets alongside your necklaces or on coordinating, lower rungs of a jewelry stand.
Another approach is to arrange two to three stylish accessory trays on a dresser, counter, or even inside a top drawer.
For earrings, consider hanging them up via a grid stand, or even a DIY vintage framed screen.
To create a full boutique look, always display matching sets (necklace and earrings, for example) together.
Going vertical is a great way to display multiple handbags in a cute way without taking up a ton of space. If you have a collection of clutches, consider turning a wine rack into a display case. For hanging bags, a stylish, wall-mounted coat or hat rack can do the trick. Inside your closet, you can hang handbags vertically via removable hooks, or horizontally by hanging cute shower curtain hooks on your clothes rack.
One of the best things about scarves is the myriad ways you can display them. From rolling them and placing them in a display tray to hanging them from hooks to tying them around tension rods, the variety of colors and patterns bring a host of colors to your personal boutique.
However you choose to display your scarves, always remember that if you can select an organizational tool that multi-tasks, you can create a beautifully coordinated space that doesn’t take up much space at all.
Ankle boots are cute to display, but tall boots tend to flop over and look messy. One quick way to make them just as attractive? Use a cut-off pool noodle to help them stand up straight. If you’re feeling especially artsy, you can decorate the noodles and leave them long enough to stick out the top.
