In Lifestyle, Minimalism

Update: Parts of my Minimalist Home and Apartment – The NOT Minimal Closet and Wardrobe

I originally posted photos of my minimalist home and apartment here, and thought an update was in order to see what has changed since I have last posted.

Soo.. my closet is NOT minimalist AT ALL.

This is the one spot that is not minimalist in my life. It’s big but I’m working on it.. or am I?

Anyway, it looks like this.

Hats on the top left on hooks, a super sweet piece of art from Little Bun, and my partner set up a necklace rack for me for Mother’s Day, and I LOVE IT.

Skirts are on the left, winter coats on the right…

The cashmere and the scarves are on the rack, note cards, etc. I have to clean all those two shelves at the top.

On the right side, you can see my more structured purses, faux fur stoles, jeans folded on the top…

I have my dresses on the left, and then my spring/autumn coats…


This whole mess has to get worked out. Everything underneath the table is to be sold / donated or tossed.

I also have a rack that I push into the walk-in closet that holds my blazers, toppers, my shirts, and my tops.

On this rack, my partner improved everything by adding crates to help me organize things.

The top part holds my thick chunky sweaters and turtlenecks…

They just fit there the best and are easier to pull down and flop back up. Plus I can’t hang them up, they’ll get out of shape.


The rack just below the shirts and blazers, my partner added three baskets for things to hold.

I have my belts rolled up in one basket, my tools, pens and markers in another basket and my yoga wear in another basket.

On the rack, I have my scissors and other items I want out of Little Bun’s way.

There is a crate on the bottom of the rack on the right side, with my sleepwear, my sweaters, my shirts for sleeping:

The crate on the other side of the rack on the left, has rolled up sweater dresses which I also cannot hang (they’ll get out of shape).

I have hangers holding my belts on one side of the rack:

The other side has another hanger, that holds pantyhose and more belts:
