The clear glass doors on Nicky Hilton’s built-in {above}, remind me of Liza Giles‘ French armoire {below} in her London flat. I quite like the idea of the transparent doors, which is similar to using library storage for pretty shoes and clutches, in which the items themselves become decorative, as opposed to being hidden away, adding dashes of colour and interest to a room.

And while we’re on the subject of closet space, I thought of Swedish stylist Sasa Antic‘s adorable and perfectly planned closet. While I might hesitate at the idea of pinching the tops of my leather boots with clips, I love the look of this space, and must admit that it’s a pretty clever space-saving idea.
