Closet Alternative: The Hallway Rack

Closet Alternative: The Hallway Rack

In every apartment we've ever inhabited, we've had a major lack of closet space. We usually make do by finding a nook at the end of the hallway or next to the door where we can fit a hallway rack. As much as we'd like our entryway to remain clean and simple, it usually ends up overloaded, so we were happy to find this photo from Emery & Cie with a fully stocked hallway rack that actually looks good...

The key to this set-up is the rich green background that would beautify almost any space. We're planning to go a little bold in our own entryway, and we're hoping that some color and decluttering will spruce up our space.

In case you're in the same boat, a few options for hallway racks to get you inspired:
