Spring Cleaning: Closet Inspiration

I know what I'll be doing this weekend. Spring cleaning my closets! Time to rotate the winter clothes out and the spring clothes in. These five gorgeous are getting me motivated for the job!
Beautifully organized built-ins, elegant chandeliers, and a glossy white dresser... this is my dream space! But I'd switch out that Louis for a Bottega Veneta...
But perhaps this one is more attainable for the moment. It looks like they converted a small nook in the house into a walk-in. My favorite part is the wallpaper. Closets are a perfectly safe place to add a little graphic punch to the walls.

If you need more storage than your closet provides, why not supplement with an armoire? It's functional and a beautiful piece of furniture. I'd gladly take the Madeline Weinrib rug too!

A table in the middle of a walk-in is a fabulous idea, don't you think? Perfect for setting down all the clothes you try on before finding the perfect outfit!

Maybe a little too much 'organized chaos' for my streamlined taste, but it's fun nonetheless! I love that they've brought a painting into the room and spent the time to decorate it like it was a public space in the house. It reminds me that even our privates spaces deserve a little TLC.

the second one is my favorite. you're right about closets being the perfect place to try out a punchy wallpaper! i just added you to my new "on the daily" list of favorite reads :)

I love how these clothes are hung with ample space between the hangers. Someone needs to throw out half my wardrobe.

Swapping out Winter clothes for Spring clothes is one of my favorite activities, and I think I would like it even more if my closet looked like one of these (fabulous clothes included).

Sadly my boyfriend and I currently share one *tiny* closet. But these have inspired my dreams of future spaces. I absolutely love that armoire. Thanks for posting!

I have always wanted to wallpaper my walk in closet. I might just have to do it soon!

What I would do for a closet like any of these! I'm unfortunately bound to a NYC lease so I'll have to take what I get. It's a walk in but it's packed and walking in really isn't an option :)

Thanks for letting me dream and good luck with your closet cleaning! :)

I am in line right behind you . I so need to purge and rotate my closet. We painted the inside a pale blue last year and it is much more pleasant to walk into. I still need to purge, since I have storage boxes of things I never wear anymore. Oh such a dilema. A fresh coat of paint and a new light fixture is a simple fix for the cleaning and rotating process, Good luck, keep us posted. You just made me add something else to my To Do list,hehe. Happy Thursday, Kathysue

The last one is my favorite-- so pretty! I need to organize my closet!

Sarah Klassen said...

Sounds like a fun project, Crystal -- I would love to see how it turns out when you're finished!

These closets are great -- I think the first + second are my favorites. The second looks so inviting, with the lovely wallpaper, hat boxes and care-free look...

Hope you have a fun weekend!
Thanks for inspiring us this week :)

Such beautiful closets - I am always dreaming of having a 'Carrie moment' ... maybe one day my husband will build me a house with a dream wardrob but until then I need a good spring clean too - I am running out of space. Happy weekend xxx
