We often say that fresh design ideas can come from anywhere—your neighborhood cafe, a chic salon, or even a fashion boutique—we can get inspired by anything we think reflects our style. However, it's not just styling tricks we can get from these special spots—we can pick up a few organizing ideas, too. Check out what we've learned when we visited the Katre showroom: 

1. Use a coat rack to hang bags you use often. 

Do you switch between bags through the work week? Consider setting your favorite pieces aside on a rack near your dressing nook. This saves you time from going through your collection when you're rushing in the morning. 

2. If you don't have a coat rack, use a medium-sized clothes rack instead. 

Hang up the bags you regularly bring with you or group the neutrals together as these are most likely the pieces that you'll use often. 

3. Use a display cabinet to store smaller pieces. 

If you own a lot of handbags, clutches, and wallets, try using a display cabinet to organize them for an instant faux-vignette in your closet. Arrange them together with some of your designer pieces upfront for an extra stylish touch. 

4. Style a boutique-inspired display on your dresser. 

Feel like you're shopping your own closet everyday by arranging the best pieces of your collection on top of your drawers or a console table. Mix it up with a few of your other favorite things—outfit ideas, jewelry, and chic prints—to give it a personal touch. 

5. Use open shelves for easy access. 

For those who have a really wide collection, you can try using open shelves to make it easier for you to spot what you need in a snap. Consider sorting them by color, type, or shape to make your closet more functional.
