Home Inspiration: Shoe Storage

Recently in one of her posts, Susie mentioned that before she started blogging she hardly owned any pairs of shoes, but now she has loads. I totally agreed with her; my shoe closet has absolutely exploded to the point where I don't have enough room to store my rapidly growing shoe collection. At the moment, I think that my best option might be to store and display my shoes on shelving. (Shoe inspiration photos via The Coveteur)

I have some big, white inset bookshelves that are not actually holding books next to my built in wardrobe in my room at my parents house where I tend to store most of my clothes, that are mostly taken up with junk at the moment. So, I think one of my tasks for the Summer for me should be to clear it out and set it up as a shoe display/ storage unit. However, for those of you who want to try something like this but don't already have the space for it, there are some pretty great shelving options out there! I personally favour some of these options from online retailer Fashion For Home

I like how different and modern this first shelf looks, and how you can choose to have shoes on display and others packed away in different brightly coloured show boxes as part of the feature. The next two are nice and sleek and modern (I'd personally go for the third one) and the final one has a great masculine look to it which would be great if you either share your place with a guy, or you want to create a striking visual contrast by decorating it with pretty and girly high heels.

I'll let you know how I get on sorting out my own messy closet floor, and post some photos once I have sorted out my shoe inspiration!

    I look forward to the day where I can having shelving to store all of my pretty shoes. At the moment, they are neatly lined in a suitcase :) I love the first shelving unit on the left, I'd have that one.

  3. Bloody hell! There's loads! :o
    Lovely ones, mind you. I'm liking the 'pastels' section with the pinks, blues, and greens :) might bring a spot of colour to this otherwise very grey, rainy Yorkshire.

  4. Oh I would love to have one of those shoes storage in my home.I would be able to be ready within minutes!!!

  5. OMG the first pic is incredible, I want it for my shoes!!!

  6. The first picture is awesome! Those are so many shoes!

  7. I want a bookcase for my shoes too!
    I seen some nice ones at IKEA.

  8. Wow, I wish I had that many pairs of stilettos! Each collection is gorgeous. I only have 4 pairs that are all brown/nude/suede, in that color range. I wish I could organize them by color.


  9. ah this is amazing! i literally have 6 pairs of shoes, so sad. i need to get more into blogging so i have an excuse to buy more! i'm too embarrassed to take photographs of my outfits, though, and never seem to have new stuff! any tips? x

  10. I used to really hate doing outfit posts, but using friends and family as photographers, and seeing how popular outfit posts seen has really helped me build my confidence with it. While I am now really lucky to be in a position where I get loads of clothes, shoes and accessories sent to me, I rarely actually buy anything either, so I don't actually have that many new clothes. I tend to find that if you make sure that each outfit has a different theme for focal point it does not matter that lots of the things you're wearing have been seen before. For example, all of these posts feature the same statement necklace, but only one of them really focuses on it as a feature, in the rest it is just part of outfits with different important features that are not the necklace:

    I hope this helps! x

  11. I don't even have that many shoes and even I need a proper place to keep them. (I usually hate seeing photos of myself because I look retarded once a camera comes out and I've put on so much weight lately that I don't even have the urge to document a pretty outfit, lol.) But more shoes are always welcomed! x

  12. I really like this inspiration! I really need something like this!

  14. I thought I was lucky with my shoe storage but wow! One day!

  15. I with I have the first one for my shoes:)
