My Master Closet is Done....

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful...remember that commercial with Kelly LeBrock? - Well, don't hate me because my closet has gotten BIGGER! Ha! Ok, so it's done...& I finally feel like I have a place for everything!  It feels amazing to be this organized, know what I mean? 


I think I would FREAK OUT everyday if my closet wasn't neat & organized!! Creating extra shelving IS DEFINITELY a great way to keep things in place & organized...I can't say it enough. 

For this side of my closet, I decided to add some leopard print wallpaper that I purchased online via Interior Mall

I like that it adds to that boutique look that I was going for & also adds some depth to this wall. Having so many clutches- I needed a specific place to display them.  We figured that building little cubbies made sense and it would feel like I was shopping for clutches, which I love!  




I also saved a section to the right hand side of this wall for longer hanging items. The boards were all purchased at Home Depot and stained to match the rest of the closet which gives it a consistent feel. The bottom half of the closet is reserved for my clothes hamper and maybe a pair of boots. 


It's an UGLY hamper, so I may end up buying another one that's more aesthetically pleasing & still functional!




BEFORE


AFTER





Oddly enough in this month's Lonny Mag - there's a closet with a wallpaper background...! See it here.



BIG Thanks to my guy for all the work he did....he's awesome! 




Update below: People kept asking me where my clothes are. Here's a pic of the left side of my closet where most of my hanging items & other items are in drawers....this side is made up of IKEA cabinets.






So, tell me...what do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts & questions...

    My question is about where you got your leopard purse in the fourth column over next to the pink purse?! I tried to do a search on your blog and couldn't find anything.

    Thanks! xo

  31. I am thinking... I would love to see that leopard print every where, and a whole lot of Mirror.

    It's just swell.

    Try 'The Container Store' for some hamper option.
    Cheers!

  48. Gorgeous! Are you still happy with your IKEA system? I've love to know what your thoughts are after living with it for a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love what you've done with it. i love how you've added color and patterns.

    my wardrobe is all mirrors, silver wallpaper and warm lighting. at the time i had it fitted (with help from an interior designer i had commissioned) it achieved the look i wanted at that time, simple and elegant.

    looking at your wardrobe now, i realise the time has come for me to add some color.

    you can check out my wardrobe pics on my blog:

From the floors, walls, to everything in between and your closet has been one of out inspiration photos that we constantly look at! I think your closet is gorg and most of all I LOVE all the cubbies that you have created.

  92. Okay, I've been lurking around your blog for months now and I have to finally step forward and say that this addition to your closet is simply STUNNING!! As an Interior Design student I'm always perusing magazines and websites for new and fresh ideas for design projects but, personally, I generally have an affinity for well-designed closets, kitchens, and bathrooms. Your closet definitely makes the best-dressed list.

    Thanks for sharing!

  93. This is so hot! But where does your hubby's stuff go? Does he have a man-closet elsewhere? My fiance and I share a small walk-in closet so I don't get to do anything this fun with it!

    ReplyDelete
  94. The wallpaper is GORGEOUS!!!! I may have to steal the idea. We actually have two closets in our master suite. My husband has the one that was in the original floor plan. We converted the den in the original plan into my closet (placing a wall where the door would have been in the hall and adding french doors in the bedroom). I have dark wood shelving units from Home Depot (adam+roth). I just adore the "room". Sometimes, I grab a mag and just hang out in there!

  109. LOVE your closet! But where are all your clothes? Our closet is a similar size but is filled with so much clothes, I don't think we'd have that much space for little shelves. It's definitely got me thinking though...

  110. Jen, I love all your post, but looking at a dream closet makes any girl super happy. Just one thing I noticed which I thought was funny was that you use plastic hangers! lol. I would have expected pretty ones or wooden ones. I still love your post thought ;)

    ReplyDelete
  111. LIZ SALDANA : sorry I didn't have any money left over for pretty wooden hangers ... Just kidding LOL.
    That's an old pic (which I'll replace soon) ... I actually have wooden hangers now, just like u see in the hanging section near the floor!
