Luxury Closet

How great is this walk-in closet?

Loving how everything is so perfectly folded, hung and arranged by type and color. Definitely a thing of luxury to have that much space (and that many clothes and shoes!)

Concealed Bedroom Storage

The newest issue of House Beautiful, particularly the above bedroom by designer Barry Dixon, reminded of a great space solution: built-ins surrounding the bed and hidden behind beautiful curtains.

The above bedroom is by designer Adrienne Neff.  She used California Closets custom units to create one side with hanging rods and drawers below, plus a tie rack; and the other side with shelves and vertical hanging space for dresses.  Shelves above the bed provide a space for off-season clothing.  The side storage is concealed with felt cutains suspened from a track, while the shelves above the bed are concealed with a linen-blend roman shade.  The custom headboard, the rich chocolate brown paint that matches the shelving, and the swing arm sconces, keep it from having a “living in a closet” feel.

This bedroom is by Sherry and John of Young House Love. They used  two Ikea wardrobes on either side of the bed.  One for her, one for him, each customized with drawers and rods and hidden behind white curtains hung high. A valance gives it a finished effect and makes it feel like the bed is tucked into a built-in nook.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is this closet from the latest issue of Lucky magazine:
how-to-basics-1-546
how-to-jeans-dilemma-546
Shelf organizers help keep handbags tidy and contained. Labeled shelves help distinguish between piles of jeans. A corkboard provides a space to post outfit inspiration.
how-to-foldables-sweaters-546
Sweaters are folded neatly by type in stacks no higher than 10 inches, with bulkiest pieces at the bottom of the pile to avoid an unstable top heavy formation.
how-to-hangables-546
Thin huggable hangers prevent garments from slipping and, unlike bulkier wooden hangers, don’t eat up valuable hanging space
how-to-shoes-546
A mounted wall rack concealed behind a lovely curtain takes advantage of a nook and holds shoes.
how-to-foldables-lingerie-546
Drawer dividers help keep delicate lingerie organized and prevent any snags from tangled bra hooks.
how-to-accessories-jewelery-546
Jewelry is kept untangled and organized in velvet jewelry trays.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is this closet from the home of fellow blogger Freckles Chic:

Isn’t it lovely? She created it by donating all the things she no longer wanted and were just cluttering up the space, and by designating a place for everything that remained. Total cost of the transformation was about $100 (for hangers, clips, shelves, storage containers, a hat stand, and headband holder). Proof that you don’t need a ton of space or money to create a beautiful closet!
For the before pictures and a breakdown of the items she used for the space, be sure to check out her blog!

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

It’s the last one of 2010, so let’s make it a fabulous one shall we?This week’s beautifully organized space is from the home of fellow blogger Megan of Honey We’re Home. Prior to moving into her custom built home, Megan lived in a townhouse with very limited closet space so having the opportunity to have a walk-in closet of this size was a dream come true for her.

The closet is just off the bathroom and measures 9’4 x 13’2! It was designed to include an island with cubbies in the middle, a shoe rack, built-in dresser, adjustable hanging shelves, shelves for purses, and a fabulous chandelier.

Pants are hung on wire hangers from Bed, Bath and Beyond and jeans are on small felt hangers that don’t bow in the middle. Before the shoe rack was built, Megan counted her shoes to see how much space she’d need. The top shelf was removed to fit tall boots which are kept upright used boot inserts.

Scarves are hung and tied over a lower rod. Lightweight sweaters are folded over white plastic hangers from Target and arranged by color -creates such a beautiful rainbow effect don’t you think?

Megan created a necklace holder behind the door using Commandhooks. She stores her purses on the side shelves. Her dresser drawers hold gym clothes, undies, sleepwear, and more jewelry.

The full-length mirror to the left of the dresser is where she plops down to do her makeup each day.

Atop the island is a runner is from World Market, a clear bin holding her makeup from The Container Store, and a flower vase and candy jar from Home Goods. On the right side of the island, she keeps her tank tops, casual long sleeve shirts, and shorts/capri pants. On the left, storage bins from Target hold belts, bikinis, and scarves. The zebra ottoman is from Hobby Lobby.

My Closet

Remember awhile back, I mentioned I was painting my sad beige closet?
