Create some Parisian chic at home {coat racks}


We can not all have walk in closets and to be honest mine would look really empty. But creating a little corner in our own bedroom or maybe having a wall in a small room is giving you lots of possibilities to be creative and make a little piece of art that is functional at the same time. A clothes rack, some black and white posters or pictures and a pair of shoes on the floor could already give you that little Paris chic - je ne sais quoi - feeling ;) 


The picture above I took in a shop in Amsterdam, I liked the look of it because it looks like my own bedroom where I also have a big framed black and white poster on the floor. It gives me a little Marais feeling and it reminds me of an inspirational trip to Paris last summer. 

I personally love to combine a coat rack with some fashion pictures, like I did here with my last years self designed hanging coat rack. I only hang my favorite clothes in black and white on the rack.  Here you can see an older post with pictures from my my own corner at home.     

In case you are wondering where I keep the rest of my clothes I must confess that w
hen having the new floors I throw out the old cabinets. And I still have some plastic boxes with t-shirts and jeans under my bed. And things like bags and scarves I keep in the rubber basket you see on the picture..... here are some more pictures of another self made clothing rack in white by weekday Carnival.

I love your coat rack. I think it's the best I've ever seen and if I could find the right space in our home, I would love to have one like this.

Funny the MEOW poster was the one we used to sell on www.bodieandfou.com, I didnt realise Weekly Carnival bought so many prints from us (she has the Batgirl print from us too). I have it at home too but it was a limited edition and it has now been replaced by MIMA LE CHAT print and LE CHAT print.

What are you up to this weekend? Le photographer who shot our house in France is coming around this afternoon to look at the London one and once this is done, I think I will paint Mila's basket...
Have a great weekend

Great ideas, thank you! I'm thinking about some changes at home and I have an old coat rack that I would like to change. So I think that's what I'm going to do this weekend :)

En ik heb dus wel een (bescheiden)inloopkast, maar alsnog heb ik te weinig ruimte voor mijn outfitjes... Krijg je als je in een kledingwinkel werkt:-) Maar de laatste maand is er niets meer bijgekomen, dus dat is dan wel weer een voordeel van het liggen in de lappenmand haha

Mooie post weer Dees, liefs Judith

great images!
i love the idea of displaying clothes as almost artwork in themselves (which they completely can be!)
This would look lovely in a spacious bedroom.
hope you're having a lovely weekend

wonderful ideas that I will use this week. I'm in the process of moving my not-so-big wardrobe into my bedroom and leaving the walk in closet (the one closet in the apartment) as a storage room. I really like the look of putting up pictures and posters above the wardrobe area. hope you've had a great weekend! and another will be along soon :)
