Well, I had planned a different post for today, but this is what I found when I opened my closet door this morning.

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned do they?  The bar broke in my closet last night.  I had other projects planned for my weekend, but now it looks like I’ll be redoing my closet.  After giving it some thought, I decided that this is a great opportunity to give my closet a much needed update.  I’ve always wanted an inspiring space, but I’ve never taken the time to do it.


Who wouldn’t want a closet like this?  Unfortunately, I don’t have this much space to play with, but here are a few closets that I love.


This is definitely one of my favorites.  I think I’ll add a pretty light fixture.  We should all have a little glamour in our closets.


This is such a serene space.  There’s something I like about having doors.  (maybe because I could hide all of my unorganized stuff…)


I love the closet “island”.  These cabinets are very similar to the ones I have in my closet.  I like the added texture of the bench and the baskets.


Love the mirrored doors and the shelving.  Why don’t my folded things look this neat when I’m done.  I think I need a folding lesson.


Here are two things that I will definitely add to my new closet.  A festive wallpaper or a beautiful new paint color on the walls and…



…jewelry, scarf and bag storage.  I love these two simple solutions.

Do you have a pretty closet?  What are your best tips for displaying and storing your accessories and clothing?  Send me your pics and I’ll do a follow up post with all of  your helpful hints.  If you’d like to see a few more of my favorite closets, head over to my Pinterest page.

  1. Hmm. You didn’t by chance fake this unfortunate accident in order to get a closet upgrade did you? Ha! Seriously, I love your inspiration images and would so love to have a real walk in closet. I hope you are well Lori.

  2. Oh my gosh – sad but I guess good too, right? What an opportunity! Your closet examples were so great that I had to add a ‘closet’ board on Pinterest so I could pin them!
    I have a very small walk-in closet and I share it with my husband. My secret is keeping only the clothes I wear (I have to be ruthless) and I like using drawers so I bought some inexpensive Ikea drawers and put them into my closet instead of hanging some of the clothes on the bottom pole.
    Since I love organizing and decorating, re-doing closets are a dream for me! Here are a few closets I have done that I have posted about:
    I will look forward to seeing what you come up with! Happy sorting 😀

  3. Oh no!!! That is not something you want to wake up to, but at least you’re making light of the situation and taking it as an opportunity to glam it up a little bit. Our closets are nonexistent in our house, so they are on my wish list for our next house and it also forces us to get creative with our storage. Here is my most recent addition that has been such a big improvement:

    I can’t wait to see what you have planned. Are you getting excited for Haven?

  4. I have never seen that two story closet picture! WOW!

    When we were designing the closet for our new house, I started a post on closets that contain many of these pictures – but never finished it. I am not sure why! Maybe I got too overwhelmed with the process.

    Our closet space seemed HUGE when the house was being framed, but once the drywall went in it seemed small. The main challenge was that the room had a window on one wall, two doors on another wall, and a bump out area because of the shower on the other side of the wall. We spent an entire 2 hour meeting with our architect sketching out all of the spaces, and the closet turned out great – a space for everything! My husband and I are not huge clothes horses, so this helps too. We have a center island that I love – I found a picture of an island with a great drawer configuration, and we modeled it after that picture.

    Just found your blog, looking forward to exploring!
