Excited about closets!
Like most women, I have dreamed and dreamed and dreamed of the perfect closet. I remember the first time I saw a room converted into a closet. It was 1987 in the movie Broadcast News. Ever since that moment, I’ve wanted my very own “room/closet.”
Well believe it or not (I seriously cannot believe it), the time has come! My husband has his man cave and now I’m going to get my closet. Or as I’ve taken to calling it, my salon. You have to say it with a French accent.
The room/closet space in question is going to be a challenge (low ceilings; various build-ins; slants and angles everywhere). But a fun challenge with a serious payoff at the end! The biggest challenge is that my room/closet has to serve 4 purposes:
• I have too much stuff for one closet, but this one should house the items in current rotation, as well as my shoes, handbags and other accessories (hats, scarves, belts, jewelry (a lot of jewelry)). And also basics — tees, lingerie…
• a nice full-length mirror, a couple of racks, hooks, shelving etc.
• a place where I can set up my laptop, look at mags, try on clothes, dance… basically a place to just get inspired and get shit done
• self-explanatory, gotta have some sort of bed-like object
Not sure yet how I’m going to pull all that off, but I’m surfing. Here’s some stuff I like so far…
and l.o.v.e. love this shoe idea (wait, this is familiar…)
I am super-excited about my re-do and promise to keep you posted on the progress.
