Billy’s In The Bedroom

Posted by Dani on September 27, 2012

Did you know that there have been over 41 million IKEA Billy bookcases sold worldwide? That’s cause Billy’s the boss.

And Billy’s great when you invite him into the bedroom. He can serve all of a girls’ needs.

I’m talking about storage needs here, people. Shoes, bags, accessories, clothes – Billy is any closet-challenged girl’s dream guy.

I’ve had a wall of white Billy bookcases in my space-deprived bedroom for years – a perfect solution while I am waiting for the big reno.

The IKEA Billy white bookshelf and Morebo aluminum-framed white glass door combo has a fresh, modern look, and at only 11” deep, take up minimal space. You’d be surprised just how much can fit into one of those puppies. You can see them in this post, where I took on a Toss-50-Things Challenge.

Lately, I was visiting a good friend who just recently used Billy to add much-needed storage to her bedroom. She moved to a gorgeous downtown condo while looking for a more permanent place, and needed a quick and easy storage solution. You can’t go wrong with Ikea – they delivered and assembled her great wall of Billy, and presto, problem solved. The best part was that Billy now comes 13” deep – perfect for storing all your favourite things. You could almost hear her gorgeous camel Louboutins sighing happily.

Here’s a few shots of her set up to inspire you. There is actually room to sort things by colour and season! Sigh…….

This is the kind of think that makes my heart sing. And my shoes feel a little envious.

    I’m in love with your friend’s closet and set up! You can add doors to the Billy bookcase now? I didn’t know that!!

      I’m in love with her closet too ;) And it does inspire me to create more order in my own storage area. And the Billy cases have been amazing for storage for me – I use them in the bedroom and in my craft area. Everything is at my fingertips!

    Hi, love the closet, but I really love that painting in your hallway outside of the room. Could you give me some information on it–where you got it, who the artist is, etc. I LOVE IT!!

      Hi Catherine! Thanks for your comments. These pics were taken at a friends house. The artist is Marija Barac-Jandric. Good luck!
