I'm currently in the process of renovating my son's old bedroom into a combination walk-in closet/dressing room/guest room, so I'm looking anywhere and everywhere for pretty and practical storage ideas. I found a lot of great ideas in Ashley's closet that I can use in my own room!
Here is Ashley's walk in closet as it appears when standing in her bedroom looking in. Ashley's items are on the right and center, her husband's clothes are on the left.
Ashley's favorite colors are in the red color family...she loves coral! A lot of her clothing items contain these colors, so she accessorized her closet with this color theme in mind. I love how she put her prettiest coral and gold dress up front and center of the closet so it's the first pretty thing you see when you open the doors.
She wraps the paper on the box and lid separately. Sometimes she leaves the lid on the box (as in the picture above) for items she doesn't use that often, and sometimes she puts the lid underneath the box (as in the picture below) and then puts a pretty greeting or vintage postage card in the lip of the box.
On the back center wall of her closet are white shelves. Here she houses more scarves, shoes, and perfumes.
She stores items with a combination of clear totes, coral hat boxes, and more baskets. I love how she took a beautiful coral scarf and draped it over the edge of a clear tote.
If the shoe box already matches the colors in the closet, like this white and pink one, she doesn't cover it with paper.
Don't you just love the necklace hung inside a frame! I'm definitely copying this idea! Dazzling!
To provide stability and another shelf, Ashley added this grey plastic crate.
On this shelf, Ashley put some romantic wall decor that coordinated with the colors in the room. The baskets holds more scarves and she displays her loveliest coral and gold scarf on top.
I like how Ashley didn't go out and buy all new storage items, and recycled and re purposed items she already owned. Here she used an old t.v. stand to hold shoes!
A clothes rack visible in a bedroom does not look ill-kept if all the clothes are in the same color range and you have matching hangers.
At the end of her clothing rack, she hangs more scarves. Yes, I know, she has a lot! Once a year we even do a 'Scarf Exchange'. We exchange scarves with each other so we have new scarves to wear without spending any money. After a period of time, we exchange them back!
To the right of Ashley's clothing rack, is a dresser. On top of the dresser is a jewelry box and elegant display items.
Isn't this fan displayed on top of the jewelry box fabulous?
Above the dresser hangs a picture frame that holds Ashley's long necklaces and other jewelry. My husband actually made this for her. It is some type of metal sheeting with holes in it that is inserted into an old picture frame. She uses paper clips to hang her necklaces. I've always planned on having my husband make one for me, I even have an extra sheet of metal. I just never had the wall space for one. I'm not sure I will have wall space in my new dressing room either. We'll see!
Here is a close up of some of Ashley's stunning pieces!
Next to the jewelry wall hanging, is an amazing peacock picture. Ashley loves peacocks! Here she hangs some feathered masks on the edges of the frame.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of how my daughter stores and displays her beautiful clothes and accessories. I love how even when Ashley is not using or wearing her items, they are still visible to enjoy daily. I also like how she coordinated all her colors to make it more pleasing to the eye and easy to find. Closets don't have to be just functional, they can be gorgeous as well.
Have a great day! Amy
