Beautifully Organized: Color Coded

Hello my dears! Arianna here of Arianna Belle Organized Interiors. When it comes to placing items into their assigned "homes" one of my favorite ways arrange them is by color. Doing so creates such a beautifully organized effect…

Books grouped by color can be a great way to style a bookshelf and add a punch of color into the decor of a room. (To preserve functionality try to keep similar subjects together or do this only with books you don’t really need to access that often)

Magazines with a colored spine (like the O Magazine, InStyle, and House Beautiful) can create a beautiful rainbow effect. Colored files can help visually separate things out into categories (red for ‘legal’, orange for ‘home’, etc) and let you find documents more quickly.

Clothing and shoes arranged by (type then by) color allows you to see what you have and makes it easier and more enjoyable to pick out an outfit.

Do you like to color code/arrange things by color?

Til next time!

  1. This is a great post! I’m mid-way through organization my closets and I’m trying to make life easier to get dressed in the morning.

    Now if only I had the shoe collections show above to organize. I’d happy have that problem.

  2. I love color coordinating my closet! I look forward to your posts Arianna because you do a wonderful job of showing how to make organization stylish. Two of my favorite things!

  3. This post is just amazing. I do love the color coding, but more so than that I just love the organization. If I could get my closet organized like this I just know I would have so much fun getting dressed in the morning!

  4. After reading this post and seeing the beautifully color coded bookshelf, i decided to color code my built in bookshelves and they look AMAZING!! I definitely need a few more yellow, purple and green books ;-D but thank you for the inspiration! xo

  5. Love it! Where can the shoe rack be purchased? I haven’t seen one like that before! Thank you for the inspiration!
