While I do love a well organized man, I am rarely impressed by their closets. Probably because there are few items that I would want to have in my own. However, recently, I've been watching a lot of the Nate Berkus show and I have grown quite fond of him. His closet is simple and organized, but its the great blue color that really makes it stand out.
Following the demise of my laptop and the loss of my personal photos and saved closets, I found little interest in going online and updating my blog. Then last night, I was trying to shift some fall things out of my closet (it finally feels like summer in the Bay Area!) and I needed some inspiration. I am so glad to see that my blog still has followers and I am going to take baby steps to updating daily again. Today's post is of a very simple dressing room with the most amazing wall color. So enjoy Minnie Mortimer's closet (and the rest of her home here) and I promise I'll be back to update soon! :)
I literally gasped when I saw this closet on The Coveteur. It's perfect! Organized, neat, and filled with the most amazing fashion. Aren't these Chanels just darling?! Check out the rest here, it's equally amazing.
I haven't heard much about Keri Russell lately, but I used to always love her style. I think her dressing room is totally fitting of her laid-back look. I really like the shelving she has in her closet. It's perfect for shoe storage but it also really makes the room look amazing.
I already thought Khloe Kardashian had a pretty legit shoe closet, as seen in my previous post here. But then, I saw the rest of her clothes closet. I am in love. Everything is color organized, the pants are together, the denim is together, bags are stacked. One of my favorite closets by far. No wonder Khloe is so well put together.
It should come as no surprise that Jessica Alba has a chic shoe closet to match her style. As much as I love her shoes, I just can't get enough of those hats! What a clever way to store hats. Definitely something I'll be doing as soon as I fix my hat deficiency in my closet.
Model, Elettra Wiedemann's, closet is by no means a favorite of mine (however, I would love to prance around in that red tulle skirt). But, I'm a sucker for fresh flowers so I'm posting some pics. I am so excited for the weather to warm up and for my grandmother's roses to bloom so that I can put them all over the house.
I post a wide array of closets. Some are meticulously organized while other are thrown together. What kind of closet do you have? And in the meantime, check out the rest of Elettra's beautiful home here.
I have no idea what I did before The Coveteur existed. It has now reached a new level of perfection with a "Shop This Look" option. It really does not get more convenient than that! Or more dangerous for my wallet.
TV host, Louise Roe has the kind of style that I can only dream of pulling off. Her closet may not be an example of organization, but I would love to be able to sift through her clothes and shoes. Although, it may be time for her to expand her closet space.
I came across this article in the January 2011 issue of Allure magazine. While, most of the tips here are pretty typical (hang your purses, stack clutches, don't hang sweaters, blah, blah, blah), I was surprised that I never realized that hanging silk shirts with beading could tear my tops! You would think that it would be pretty obvious. So I quickly had to find a new way to store my beaded tops. Can't think of anything practical and stylish yet. But, in the meantime, I decided to post some pictures of my prized beaded tops.
So, posts have been scarce because school is kicking my ass this quarter. But, I couldn't look at these images without also posting them here! Khloe's shoe closet is badass! Check out more of her treasures here.
This closet is quite different from the last one I posted but its just as amazing! Its not the first time I've seen that light fixture and regardless of what style that closet or dressing room is, it just fits.
This is so lovely and simple. And it has all my favorite elements of a great walk in closet: an island of drawers, flowers, and color organization. The chandeliers add such a sophisticated touch. Every time I see a new closet, I just want to go shopping and reorganize my own.
Although, I do not know who this closet belongs to, it is easily one of my favorites. It could pass for a lovely minimalist sitting room with a fireplace and great shelving for books. But instead, it transforms into a heavenly dressing room where the shoes replace books. Love it, love it, love it!
Edit: Thanks Jamie, for letting me know that this is another part of Jenna Lyon's closet. Check out some more pics from an earlier entry here.
I just can't get enough of my favorite website of the moment, The Coveteur. This closet belongs to Aslaug Magnusdottir, the CEO of Moda Operandi. I'm a sucker for any closet featuring sequins :) Check out more of her closet here.
Tracy Taylor, US editor, of net-a-porter.com has an awesome organized closet. I certainly agree that closets should be organized by style, type, and color. Oh, and how I long to attach polaroids to my shoe boxes that house my YSL's and Louboutins. Check out more of her awesome pieces here.
This girl is just so stylish! So I'm not surprised her closet is amazing. She converted her office in her apartment into this beautiful fashion sanctuary. Gotta love the zebra rug! I can only imagine the incredible accessories she has stored in there.
My mom found this jewelry display for me at Costco of all places. I figured now would be a good time to share some of my own pieces. I love accessories and jewelry, however, I rarely buy any for myself. Its a mix of not being able to wear them to work/not finding it practical when I can just buy another handbag instead ;). Most of my collection are pieces that I have been gifted or have kept for sentimental reasons.
My father bought me this teapot at an antique shop when we were shopping together one day. My family drinks tea 3+ times a day so it seemed quite appropriate.
I purchased this little handmade necklace from a man working from his truck outside of Pebble Beach outside of Monterey. Its made out of a beautiful tiny piece of sea glass.
I love this ring even though it is so big I can only wear it on my thumb. The turquoise and gold together are one of my favorite combinations.
This is absolutely phenomenal. Artist Charlotte Mann draws these amazing works of art using only a black marker pen on a white background. It instantly livens up the room. You can go without a lot of furniture or decor if you have a wall that looks as amazing as this one. Check out more of her inspirational works here.
