Another Closet Redo

Finally finished my closet redo (and hopefully it’s my last). Seating, storage and divided use of space! I’m happy with how it all turned out. Before and after photos are below.

Look for Less: Ikat Slipper Chair

Image

My love for Ikat knows no bounds. These gorgeous chairs are perfect accents to a living room or bedroom. Slipper chairs are great for small apartments or can be used in groups in a larger space… but they do add up quickly. Fortunately, I found a great deal for this edition of Look for Less.

1. One Kings Lane has this Bergman Armless Chair in Sapphire/White on sale for $299

Closet Plans

Image

Yes, I’ve already reorganized my closets on two different occasions. And I’m still not quite satisfied. I spend enough time in the bathroom and closet/dressing room getting ready every day, so I’m still trying to make it as efficient of a space as possible.

Needs:

-More organization
-Seating
-Designated separate space from office supplies/beauty supplies (currently all merged into one area)

Solutions:
-Bins and trays for organization (purchased at HomeGoods… sorry for the dark photo)

-Seating (this little X stool from Target is on its way to my apartment)

-Additional shelving (I’m picking up this wooden shelf, from the Container Store this week)

Stay tuned for the third closet transformation. I’m fully aware how crazy I sound :) I’m still tossing around ideas and logistics for this project, so hopefully it will be done and blog-worthy in a week or two!

Design Trend: Black Doors, Windows and Trim

Image

I noticed this trend while watching Flipping Out, featuring my design idol, Jeff Lewis.

I love the look of black walls, but if you’re not as daring and want to take a smaller step in that direction, painting doors, window frames and trim in black is an excellent way to start. Here are a few of my favorites:

DC Cherry Blossoms

Happy Monday! Thought I would share a few photos I took of the famous DC cherry blossoms! It’s a wonderful time of year and a great tradition if you live in the District.
