We have so many projects on our “to do” list, but we all know I can’t just focus on finishing one project at a time. I tend to jump from room to room doing a little bit here and there. When I was contacted by Walls Republic about a possible partnership, I was instantly inspired to move one project way higher on the list than it might have been otherwise. Chris and I have talked about eventually making over our bedroom closet. It’s pretty large and there’s a window — it’s a great space to have some fun with decorating and organization, and maybe get a little more adventurous than I normally would since it is just a closet. I would love to build some new shelving and reconfigure a few things, but that’s something we will do down the line. For now, we are starting “phase one” of our closet makeover by glamming it up a bit.
Our closet is L-shaped and goes back farther than it looks. (And it’s a bit hard to photograph, but it’s longer than it looks in the photos.) We’re also in the middle of organizing so please ignore the garbage bags full of clothes to donate, etc.
This is what you see when you first walk in, and then it turns to the right.
When you enter and turn right, you see this.
And if you turn around when you get to the end, you’ll see the window. (It’s on your left when you first enter the closet.)
And here is just a peek at the general feel I’m going for with the closet makeover, along with a mood board to show the general idea of what type of elements we hope to incorporate. (And by “we,” I mean “I.” Chris has wisely left the decor plans up to me.)
That fawn pattern is wallpaper, you guys. It’s not going to cover the entire closet, but it will be a feature on a couple of walls in there and I can’t wait to show you once we get it up! I know it will make quite an impact, especially since the walls are a totally blank slate right now.
Hopefully it won’t take me a hundred years to finish the closet like the bedroom makeover has. (I’m starting to make progress there too.)
I’d like to add a bench, but I’m thinking the closet might be too narrow and it would just be in the way, so a simple chair might work better. I would also love to find a small-scale antique French chandelier that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, but I am going to have to do some serious thrift-scouring to find one in my budget. I absolutely love the one in this bedroom, and these in Jillian Harris’ kitchen. I think combining classic and elegant elements with modern touches is going to be my sweet spot when it comes to this space.
What elements would your dream closet have? I’d love to hear!
