Closet and Dressing Inspirations for 2010

Since fashion and accessories is one of my many obsessions, I always love
seeing beautifully designed closets and dressing rooms.  In this case, a
large room that probably could have been a living room that's been made
into a super fun, colorful and feminie dressing room and closet.

Whoever designed this closet made sure that every space,
crook and cranny was used to it's fullest potential.  The
analytical side of me absolutely loves that!

Of course if you have the space, being able
to stretch your legs out is fantastic too.

Here's a very modern bedroom with fantastic floors I must say.  The
closet is open to the bedroom but solid doors close off all of the clutter
leaving a very white and bright modern space.

Who says you have to paint your cabinetry white?  This
closet has a great shade of blue on all the cabinetry -- and
you can never really go wrong with a Moroccan pouff ^_^

Don't have enough room for a walk-in-closet?  Never fear, you
can still have a super organized and ultra efficient space for your

If you don't have a lot of space in your closet, a garden stool is
a great thing to throw in so you can have a little spot to sit on.

Don't have a coat closet in the front entry?  You
can use a wardrobe like this one.  Great organization.

Sliding doors or fabric curtains like this can save a lot of space.

For those of you who don't like to see the clutter
in a closet, using solid doors is the answer.

Sunset Home has some great orgainzational books including
this one above.  Hope this post has given you some closet
organization inspiration for any of you who have made
resolutions this year to organize your home!  I know I have.

Storage is my pet peeve. Even-though I live in a house I never ever have enough closet space and am always transferring season clothes from attic to bedroom from guest-room to bedroom...endless task
I dream of the type of closets I design for my clients....Thanks for showing such beautiful examples, francine
