One of the few downgrades for me when we moved into our new place is the amount of closet space I have. Even after putting all of my off-season stuff in storage bins under the bed, things are still very cramped in my poor closet. And it sort of defeats the purpose of having a lot of clothes if you can't find them. After our very successful book color-coding experiment, I decided to apply the same method to my clothes.
First I had to buy all matching hangers- I chose these wood ones from the container store. Then sort everything by color- it's okay to mix pants and jackets and dresses and shirts all together, as long as they are in their proper color section.
In the end, my closet feels like something out of a catalog (or Domino, above) and I can find everything I'm looking for, although I'm a little disturbed by the size of the brown section (below). I guess my wardrobe is showing its true colors.
