Anyone who has a collection of purses knows that they can be a pain to put away. Finding smart storage solutions usually eases the headache, but what if you did the opposite? There’s one fashionista who has some of her favorite accessories on display, instead of hidden and tucked away.

China Calé is a fashion stylist and influencer who lives in a 3,200-square-foot apartment in Buenos Aires, Argentina with her family of five. After years of working as a publicist, Calé started a fashion blog with a popular Instagram account (@mindthegapchica) where she shares her home’s evolution. Calé and her family have been living in this apartment for almost two years, and she uses it as a place to display her love for fashion and stylish interiors.

“I do not have a defined style,” Calé says. “I wanted to keep the classic French style of the building while incorporating some color with furniture, accessories, and murals.”

Calé’s best decorating advice for creating a home that feels equally fashionable and functional is not to be afraid to include colors or pieces that match your personality. And that’s exactly what she did inside her stunning home office. Calé kept all of the original picture frame molding on the walls for character, and painted everything a pretty shade of salmon pink.

Then, to add even more personality to the room, she added a few unexpected touches. One of those personal touches is a cool wooden ladder leaning against the wall, which displays about six different purses.

While lots of people would think to stash accessories like purses away in a closet, Calé has them out front and center. “I am really happy living in a place were I find myself in every part of it!” she says. “You can always change things, redistribute them, or use them in a different ways.”
