Closet Inspirations and Organization

A little while back, I got a request to post about closets.
I decided to leave out celebrity closets for another post
since there have been a lot on that topic.

Above is one of my dream closets. The owner incorporated
the bath and the closet together. I always wanted to be to
incorporate the two although space was always an issue...

It's totally gorgeous!

This is a super cool closet with black lacquered
finishes, glass and a chandelier to top it off.

The owner of this closet is part of a 2 person design team
from Arizona of Bella Designs. She was inspired by French
design and included antique hardware for her finishes.

I found this photo from a showcase on a gorgeous house
that Joni from Cote de Texas blogged about. Wouldn't
we all love to have such a spacious closet?

This was a showcase closet designed for Hollywood Life's
Young Hollywood Dream Closet.

Laura Canattos open closet (photo from Flickr.) She did
a fantastic job of organizing her closet and hanging her
clothes by color. She was clever about space and hung her
bags on hooks on the wall.

This mirror is one of the coolest things I've
ever seen. Bella Designs (from above) bought
this for one of her clients.

It swings open to reveal a huge jewelry
storage space. I totally need one of these.

Here's a super organized closet.

I'm a total real estate stalker. I love looking at
homes for sale constantly. I saw this home where
the owner had turned an entire room into her
closet. Love her shoes! Though I'm not sure
how the house will sell with one of the rooms
as a closet unless she can find another fashionista!

Here's a great man closet. House Beautiful
had asked readers to send in photos of their
closets. Very organized and a great use of
a tiny space.

It's an interesting idea to incorporate a writing
desk into a closet. I suppose it is a cozy space
though.

Now there's a really clever use of space -
cutting out drywall and using the space
in the walls itself as a shoe storage space.

For all of you mommies with young kids,
isn't this a gorgeous closet for a child?
Super organized with all of the toys below.

Here's a closer look. Using bins for shoes is
a great idea.

Last but not least is another dreamy closet with a bright
window and mirrors. It's really rare to have such a large
window in a closet - I think it's fantastic.





Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to
Organizing Your Closet With Style


I don't know about you, but one of my New Year's
Resolutions for 2009 was to organize my clothing
and shoes which have an inordinate amount of.
Whenever I start any projects, I always start by
buying a book or two for inspiration to get myself
started. Here's my pick and what I ordered in case
any of you are also looking at organizing your closets.

I was thrilled to see your first bathroom photo - when we built our house 8 years ago I asked our architect to design my bathroom to include a closet. He thought it was a stupid idea and as a result many arguments ensued but I resisted his advice. The result is a wonderful and pratical bathroom and now I can't imagine having two separate rooms!

*SNYdesign said...

Wish I had enough space for a walk-in closet!!!These are great inspirations!

Things That Inspire said...

The first closet is so interesting, because I don't often see a closet within the bathroom. It reminds me of the house that my in-laws built - a huge house - and because they had never had walk in closets, or maybe they were not as prevalent as they are now, she had all of her clothes behind doors in her very large master bathroom.

Beautiful Living said...

You started out with my absolute favorite! James Radin is a genius :)

Loved the last one as well, absolutely beautiful.

sergeilovestonya said...

ooh yummy. I had a huge walk in closet the first house I owned and I've whittled my way down to almost no closets now! (ah, vintage living....)

These are absolutely gorgeous and droolalicious. I think one of the things I loved the most from the Sex in the City movie was the closet!

Betsy said...

These are absolutely dreamy...total organizational wet dream material! Thanks for this!

Erin said...

I'm drooling all over my keyboard right now!!! I love the idea of having a bathroom and closet all in one room. It would make things so much more efficient for me! GREAT post, Karen!!!

... what if you buy a house and the shoes don't fit????????

dwellings and decor said...

This post makes me extremely jealous. So many beautiful closets. Thank you for sharing!

Maggie May said...

great post! i am inspired now with an idea for my Lola's closet. thank you :)

dolcechic said...

WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW! I am speechless, I miss being able to shop....I would love a closet like one of these!

Alkemie said...

Leigh - I can't believe your contractor thought it was a stupid idea to mix the closet and bathing area together. Obviously, as a man he didn't understand what women need lol.

Style Rumors - I'm so flattered that you nominated my blog for a Blog Award - that is super sweet!

Erin - I was totally drooling too!

Things That Inspire - It's definitely uncommon for there to be enough space to build this combo - and most people don't think to. To me it's a great blend and a natural one to combine the two.

Gina - then you gotta make room for them!! I actually found skinny shelves to line my hallway and I keep all of my boots at the bottom of this book case because I didn't have enough shoes in my shoe cabinet :P

I'm so glad everyone enjoyed these images and thank you for all of the comments. They always make my day :)

I totally agree with your favorite pick. That closet with a bathroom is really gorgeous and very practical. Although I want to do this, space is also an issue. So, I guess I just have to get inspiration and ideas from the other examples you have given. Thank you for this post.
