Hang It AllFor some people, hatboxes aren’t a desirable option. “A lot of people like to see what they have and have it readily at hand,” Goorin says. There’s a solution for that: hooks and hangers. The trick is to choose the right kind.
Hats off to this Florida home. Sometimes couples need to compromise. This bedroom seating area used to be decorated with purses, but the couple agreed to display their collection of hats — something they could both relate to.See the rest of this home
6. Hang your hats. Don't let cool hats hide behind closed doors — show off your fedoras, trilbies, cloches and skimmers on hooks on the wall for a functional display. Unless you are going for a dorm room–bachelor pad vibe, I would avoid hanging baseball caps. No hats? Try the same thing with your statement necklaces for a similar effect.
A cozy sitting area opposite the bed features a patchwork love seat and a basket-weave planter. Ryan confides that the wall used to be decorated with purses, but the couple agreed to display their collection of hats instead — making Ryan very happy.Love seat: Lee's Furniture (no longer available); planter: Anthropologie (no longer available); paint: Tear Drop Blue, Benjamin Moore

1. Hat rack If you’ve gathered a decent hat collection over the years, it’s a shame to leave it hiding away in a wardrobe. A few hooks set out along a blank wall can transform it into a functional display. The best part? Your fedoras, fascinators, boaters and berets will always keep their shape. Tip: This also works with flat, woven baskets. Ramp up the drama by first painting the wall in a dark shade such as Dulux Monument then any light highlights in the weaving will really pop.
