Wardrobe wonders


Sex & The City taught us two things - that a girl should never settle for a man, and that a girl should never settle for a closet. When Mr Big built Carrie that sigh-inducing walk-in wardrobe, a fashion fairy tale was born (watch it it here). Women all over the world swooned over the glossy white drawers, glass-fronted doors and shoe racks that went on for days. Here at The Apartment, we're dreaming big too, and one day, our clothes will live here...

Wardrobe eye-candy aside, squeezing a luxurious robe into a small inner-city apartment can seem about as likely as getting one's hands on an illustrious Birkin bag. But that's no reason not to store and display your threads in style. To create the feel of an opulent dressing room in a modest space (ie. shoebox), adorn open shelving with chic accessories and fashion photography, or dress the walls in striking wallpaper.

A clothing rack is a smart addition - sure it's not going to hold your entire wardrobe, but it can help take the load off an overflowing closet (damn those stingy built-ins). Plus, your favourite clothes can make fabulous decorating tools - think a flowing lace gown or wallpaper-worthy graphic dress. We also like the idea of hanging a week's worth of perfectly planned outfits on a wall-hung rack - anything to minimise the morning rush. Check out these Scandi-chic looks, each a lesson in orderly fashion.

Of course, it's tempting to take a cue from our style crush Olivia Palermo and transform a spare bedroom into a glamorous dressing room, complete with chandelier, fireplace and endless sartorial storage. Who needs a study anyway?
