closet visit









So I am transforming my now empty etsy selling vintage room into a gigantic dressing room / closet. . . and I am SO FREAKING excited!  The room was actually originally a nursery for my son, and connects to my bedroom via private door but also has an additional door that leads to an outside hallway right across from the laundry room, making it a perfect space for a closet room since it is smaller than a bedroom (a twin sized bed would only just fit) but big enough for my industrial sized rolling racks! So now I am brainstorming wall colors and wall papers and hanging lights and shelving options. I am thinking planks of raw wood on industrial shelving brackets, powdery flat gray paint for the walls, inspiration photos covering some surfaces, wooden dowels for hanging hats and belts and scarves, some super amazing rug, a giant mirror leaned against the wall, cushy chair, a clothesline to hang hats on, small tables for accessories!!! All of my shoes lining the walls! I am also doing some MAJOR editing in my closet to give it more of a clean streamlined feel. I think I am more excited about organizing this space than I have been about anything creative for a long time!

All of these images are from closetvisit.com, a site I found recently that is giving me some serious creative mojo. Wow, go check it out. It is basically a site full of super cool girls and their closets. I have spent hours there.

How exciting. My husband has talked about putting the girls in the upstairs bedrooms and turning their current room into a large dressing room. I wouldn't stop him. :) I hope you share the finished result!

That sounds so decadent and wonderful -- have you seen Anthropologie's line of wallpaper yet? (http://tiny.cc/s7yrd) It seems like the kind of super-fabulous accent that befits a super-fabulous dressing room.

The pictures had me so confused until I read your post, I was like, who ARE these people? HA:) Gosh, your closet dreams are enough to make me want to move out of NYC.. your future closet is probably equal to my bedroom! Can't wait to see your progress!
