Rifel Paper Co.

I just have this thing for stationary! I don’t know what it is but I love anything made with paper that is pretty! I am a card person. I ALWAYS give cards! You can imagine how excited I am about these ones by Rifle Paper Co. You might remember me posting their note book here. The adorable-ness doesn’t stop there! The company has tons of gorgeous and fun cards and stationary AND kitchen note cards to choose from! A new staple to every girly home! (We don’t like to tell our men that it’s girly, right?)

Happy Monday!

Guest Post- 8 Ways to show off your Closet & Accessories!

Hi! I’m Joanna, a writer with Design Shuffle, a premier source for all things interior design and architecture. It’s a great way for designers to show off their work and design enthusiasts to find the latest news, trends and images all relating to interior design. I’m fortunate enough to spend my days scouring the internet for images of the most beautiful spaces. Then I get to share them with blog readers like you.
Many of us have more clothes, shoes, bags and accessories than we have space. Unfortunately, most of us probably don’t have the room in our homes for a dedicated dressing room. We included eight dreamy fashion-dedicated spaces in hopes it will inspire some decorating ideas to show off all your stuff. Thank you The Doctor’s Closet for letting me share with you today.

Can you imagine owning this many pairs of shoes? Some of you just might. The shoes take center stage in this chic dressing room.

So organized and so pretty! There is a space for everything from evening wear to bags and hats.

A room dedicated to clothes and shoes-really? I love the traditional architecture and interior design.

This dressing room looks more like a store than a room in a home. I love the idea of organizing clothes by color.

This space is absolutely gorgeous. The artful and eclectic furnishings remind me of a Parisian apartment.

The vanity area in this dressing room is an extra plus while clothes and bags are at arm’s reach.
