Crave-Worthy Closets



Welcome back from the weekend, ya'll. Hope everyone enjoyed a couple of days off work and got a chance to relax before the craziness of this week begins.

This weekend was kind of a mellow one for me, which is a good change of pace for this girl. Friday, I went out on Dickson Street (which is kind of the main going-out place in Fayetteville), but was at home and in bed by 12:30, which is admittedly a very un-cool time to be in bed on a Friday, haha. I was just exhausted from the busy week I'd had.

Saturday was official "Catch Up on Laundry Day" for me, so I spent the morning cleaning my very neglected apartment and getting some other chores caught up for this week. I felt kind of "blah" on Saturday night, so I opted for a movie at home and ice cream, haha. Don't we all need one of those nights now and then?

This weekend also gave me some much-needed time to think about some personal stuff and be all pensive and whatnot. I feel like I'm kind of in a weird place right now, trying to figure out how to be 25 and balance a career, be financially responsible (pay bills, save money, file tax returns, etc.), make time for my family and friends and survive the jungle that is being single, haha. Oh my...it's overwhelming sometimes, ya know? Alright, enough about that.

Even though the topic got postponed until next week, I still had a blast participating in Kelly's Korner and sharing my sort-of-collections with you guys! So as a follow-up to that, I thought I'd pass along these pics from Canadian House and Home of crave-worthy closets!

I mean, if you're going to have a massive collection of clothes/shoes/accessories, you might as well have a cute place to put it! My current place does have a GREAT walk-in closet that more than accomodates my stuff, but alas, a girl can always dream bigger....


Boho Chic Dressing Room




Sleek Dressing Room



Feminine Walk-In Closet


Sleek Open Clothing Closet



Glam Dressing Room


Fabric Curtain Closet


Even though it would be costly to rennovate a closet like these, there are some good ideas here that could be incorporated into even the smallest closets. Try using a pretty, fabric shower curtain to cover an open closet in a studio apartment or dorm room. Hint: Shower curtains are usually cheaper than window panels, so save some money and shop straight out of the bath department!


Echo "Jaipur" curtain- $35, Tracy Reese curtain- $40 (both from Dillard's)


Also, I'm loving these cute spool shaped hooks from Pottery Barn. These would be totally great for hanging small scarves, hats or extra shoe laces. PB also has this great jewelry box that looks almost like a piece of art.

Wooden "Spool" hooks- $19, Emmett Jewelry Tree- $69 (both from Pottery Barn)


Which of the above dressing room designs is your fave?

  7. I want a large closet so badly! My friend and I are moving in together and alas.. our midtown home doesnt have anything even remotely close to large closets. Sooo.. I have my standing clothes rack and am trying to research ways for extra storage that actually looks cute.

    And yeah.. I laid low this weekend, too. I'm 28 and I still have trouble figuring the balancing act out! Although I have to admit that I care a lot less about random stuff than I used to. I just go at my own pace, do what I need to do and everything seems to work. haha! :)

  10. I really like the spool hooks, what a cute idea and all of those closets are amazing, I like the one with a lot of shoe room! I know it is hard to balance finances, saving, spending time with friends, etc. Here's to trying though! :)

  11. My favorite is the first one-gorgeous!

    It is hard being in your twenties trying to figure all that stuff out. I'm 24 and often have to have those nights just to ponder things.

  12. Oh I'm loving the Sleek Dressing Room. I'd kill for a sleek closet!

  13. I love the first room! My dream is not to have a walk in closet but create a whole dressing room. Oh to dream! Thanks for your comments on my celebrity apology post honey. I agree with you...where is the class of the old days? Kori xoxo

  14. I just posted my dream closet the other day... for some reason, I love the idea of dark, dark wood in my closet. Big and open and very clean lines. Silver fixtures, and perhaps a leopard rug on the floor and a few leather chaises. Someday...

  15. My Saturday was spent catching up on laundry, too. I love all of those closets, because they're ALL 10x as big as mine!

  16. I hang my scarves on hooks too and I've been toying with the idea of hanging them out in my room (as opposed to being in my closet) to bring more color to my room and to double as decor. Any thoughts?!

    xoxo

  17. oh my! all of these are just so gorgeous. i love each one and already getting ideas for my own small (compared to these) walk in closet. and what a great idea for a curtain panel.

  18. I love looking at pictures of closets. Thanks for posting. I think the feminine one is my favorite.

  19. Jess- I love the idea of hanging scarves in a room as opposed to hanging them inside the closet! Scarves are so colorful and visually fun to look at, so I think this would be a great idea! Let me know how it turns out!!

  20. Remember the scene in the Sex and the City movie where the girls all see the renovated closet for the first time? This is where I'm at right now. Love them!! I can't wait until I have a house ... and a closet ... that I'm not sharing with my husband ... and the cat's litter box ... and my Christmas decorations.

    I may just come back to this post and stare at the pictures until then.

  21. The feminine closet looks a lot like Carrie Bradshaws closet from her bachelorette closet but the glam closet is to die for! Look at all those shoes!! By the way, I just love the spool knobs from Pottery Barn, VERY sweet!

  23. I would take any of those closets! WOW! I can't imagine having that much space.

  24. LOOOOOOVE those closets! Oh, to own a place one day...I will require an extra bedroom that will be my 'dressing room' for sure. In regard to the life pondering you did over the weekend, I just started a blog about this exact topic. A lot of cooking and a little of all of the other stuff in the quarter-life :)
