Small elegant master bedroom photo in New York

Bedroom Organization: East Village, NYC 1 bedroom apartment

Traditional Bedroom, New York

Originally used as a landing space which was too far away from the front door and was severely under utilized. Since this is a rental apartment, I used temporary vinyl adhesive wallpaper and created a handbag wall for the busy career woman. The handbags were previously stored on a shelf too high for the petite resident in a bedroom closet. photo: Rikki Snyder

    thanks so much for asking the question. are your handbags heavy b/c you keep everything in one bag until you switch to use another? without seeing your home or the bags, it is difficult to make practical suggestions.

    what i would suggest is to empty your bag every night and keep the items that are needed everyday on a tray or a drawer which not only eliminates a lot of stress on the strap or handles, but allows you to see what you carry around and identify what isn't a necessity.

    i keep a kleenex pack and a black sharpie in every bag. are there particular items that you would never want to be without and can be purchase in duplicates?

    i know this isn't exactly the answer to your question, but implement an emptying handbag ritual with everyone of my clients and they adapt to it rather quickly.

    hope this email finds you well.

    be good,

Bags. Keep bags visible on wall hooks instead of cramming them in the back of a closet. Hold your bags up to the wall...
