These Photos Will Inspire You to Display Your Favorite Bags
Showcase your precious totes and purses while keeping your home clutter-free
Whether it’s a sturdy backpack or classy purse you love using during special events, our bags are prized accessories we can’t get enough of. If you’ve already mastered the art of keeping your collection in tip-top shape and how you can organize them, it’s time for a quick 101 that tackles how to use your favorites as part of your décor. When arranged neatly, your bags can double as accent pieces in a space. Let these pretty photos show you how it can be done:
Create a vignette in your walk-in closet
If you have a separate walk-in closet, you can showcase your bag (or bags!) of the week on top of your display cabinet. With the photo above as your peg, place your bags in the middle, then prep a tray with your perfume, accessories, and a vase of flowers. This setup can add a refreshing touch to your space.
RL Tip: As an alternative, you can also put glass containers on the tray. Pick pieces in varying heights to make it more interesting. Find a similar try and shop for lovely vials at Crate & Barrel.
Use a bookshelf
Got enough space in your bedroom to accommodate an extra shelf? Aside from fixing your favorite reads in one, use an extra piece to showcase your favorite bags. Arrange them per type, color, or material for a neat and organized look. If you want to make it more fun, you can give each bag a score. The higher the score, the more prominent it will be on your shelf. Don't forget to take a photo of the final output.

Work on a wall accent
Many homeowners leave their bags by the foyer, utilizing wall hooks and knobs as organizers. For a more beautiful setup, you can invest in a ladder shelf where you can keep your bags, scarves, and other essentials. For a quirky approach, look for wooden knobs in varying sizes then install these on your wall. With or without your bags, it can stand out as decor.

Keep the boxes
Colorful boxes can add pops of color to your display. Use it to add height to your vignette (simply put the bags on top) or as extras that can liven up a shelf. Avoid a cluttered look by opting for smaller boxes or those in the same color.
Make it extra with a LED display board
Are you a loyal fan of a certain brand? Be inspired to work harder so you can reward yourself with a new bag with a fancy LED display board that you can install in your bedroom or walk-in closet. You can opt for a quote or a funny phrase that you love. Place it in the middle, then install wall-mounted shelves on both sides where you can keep your bags. We're sure that after this project, you'll have a fantastic gallery/accent wall.
Let your dust bags shine
These days, bags come in classy dust bags, too. If you're worried that your bags might get dirty while on display, then arrange your favorites and showcase them even if they're inside dust bags. Fix them per color or brand for a sleek look. You can even let the brands speak for themselves by fixing the dust bags with the photo above as your peg.
Pair your bags with your favorite shoes
If you're looking for an unexpected storage piece you can add to your space, a curved shelf will surely stand out. Instead of using it to display only your bags, take it a notch higher and be a true fashion maven by pairing your purses and totes with your shoes.
Bring out those heels, sneakers, and boots. Place these at the bottom of the shelf and let your bags take the upper tiers. We're sure that this part of your home will sparkle!

Mix and match your essentials in a cubby shelf
There's something about the cubby shelf that makes it pleasing to the eyes. Aside from the clean lines, it adds balance to the overall look of your room, too. Feel free to mix and match your belongings to create an interesting display. Place a pretty box and a potted plant in one, then follow it up with a dazzling pair of shoes. Your bags can be placed alternately or can take up the middle row for a charming touch.
