The Art of to display your shoes

Shoes. What girl doesn't love her shoes? Really beautiful ones are almost like art themselves. I have been known to buy an expensive pair of shoes just because I love to look at them. I once left a pair on my dresser because I didn't want them hiding in the closet...le sigh. 
I love seeing clever ways to display your shoes.

here are some of my favorites...


interior designer crush: Sabrina Linn

I have a new design crush. Sabrina Linn, an interior designer based in Toronto, Canada, has captivated my eyes with her bright and beautiful designs. Her portfolio is full of goodness that is sure to make any decorista smile. She also has gorgeous collections of pillows available which are such fun to look at. 
How gorgeous is this sunny, full of style penthouse loft? I'm absolutely smitten with the pops of orange and yellow. Oh, and the tiger art piece too!

wallcolor wednesday... metallic love

Right now I am completely crushing on the seductiveness of this metallic wallpaper. I am loving this delicious silver rope print covering these gorgeous closet walls. I have a huge crush on metallic wallpaper right now.
Oh so glamorous and absolutely do-able in your home. Go for a small closet, entryway or bathroom.
How perfect is this metallic toile? I adore the teal green color pattern most of all.
I'm also fond of sweet metallic prints as well... a floral print has just stolen my heart.

bliss in the kitch'...the ultimate in grey walls

Reading one of my dailys, Shelter, my heart skipped a beat the moment I saw this image.
The gorgeous grey walls, white open shelving, dark wood island, glossy white chairs and deep teal fridge. To top it all off a sweet peacock gracefully sits on top. 

Want to see more of the magical home? Keep reading.
Peachy pink accents are the perfect offset to the all grey home. I am just mad about the look.
The bedroom and closet are so lush and dreamy.
A painted red console is perfection for the dream dressing room!

a House Beautiful as ever! {manhattan apartment love}

Have you guys seen the lastest issue of House Beautiful?
I cannot get over the cover + the gorgeous NYC apartment that graces it.
Lots of color (as i'm sure you can guess) is my favorite, I literally get some serious pleasure looking at homes with extremely bold color palates. It warms my soul and feeds my eyes to see such goodness.
This gorgeous pink wallpaper is amazing! Chinoiserie, hello, i love you!
Oh, and of course all of the purple in this space....sigh.

secret of domestic bliss #26 {a well organized closet}

Every girl knows the importance of having a well organized closet.
It's redundant to have to search for hours to find something to wear. I know we all run into that problem from time to time. That's why I am declaring this month of July to really stepping up my game and getting my closet completely organized.
Here are some essential organizational tools that every closet should have...
(one of my favorite actresses, Olivia Wilde, and her gorgeous dressing room. love!)
great lighting + wallpaper
ample space for shoes
matching hangers are an ultimate do!
a full length mirror is a must for trying on your duds...
i love a good vanity inside the femme
beautiful wallpaper and shelving for handbags go together so well
beautiful jewelry storage can be such a lovely sight to gaze at
a lush hot pink rug is oh so rockstar chic
just like in a kitchen, an island in a closet is a dream come true
and who doesn't love the ultimate dream closet of miss carrie bradshaw?

Celeb Home Tour: Ashley Tisdale for Instyle Mag June 2010

Have you guys picked up the new copy of Instyle?
Woah! Loads of goodness inside.
It may just be me but this weekend when I got my copy I opened straight to the back section where they usually have celebrity homes, food, interior decor tips, etc.
I was happily surprised to find the adorable Ashley Tisdale's Los Angeles hideaway featured. 
I think I am in love.

Here she is pictured in her closet...I always luuuv celebrity closets, the clothes are to die for!
the pink ottoman had me at HELLO!
Her bedroom is so peaceful + serene, the blues just take my breath away.
I would die for her poolside cabana + pool. I want one! 
Can you spot the Zgallerie Casablanca Lanterns? I am obsessed with them.
that little pup's face + the louis vuitton trunk coffee table = domestic bliss

rachel zoe...ultimate glamour

this girl is all the rage right now! Her new show on Bravo is such delicious reality pleasure. Fashion, drama and glamour...its better than the Hills. She has extensive collections of the most gorgeous gowns, the highest heeled shoes in all the land and jewels "to DIE for".
The closet has to be my favorite room in an entire home. It is hands down the one place a woman can be the most feminine, if she chooses to indulge herself. Nothing is better than a full on dressing room and Rachel has one that I could only dream of. Uber Glam!
