Guys, hope you still love me. My last few posts have been client projects. While I know many of you enjoy reading these, I know you love my personal or home improvement related posts as well. I guess you can say the blog content is indicative of my current schedule = client heavy and slow on the home front. This is true. However, there has been progress made with the new outdoor patio so that is going to be my next blog post this weekend. I have loads of photos to share, the chairs for the dining table arrived and my new outdoor table is arriving on Sunday! (Yes, apparently Pottery Barn delivers on Sunday. And at 7:30am … coffee will be in full brew!)
I’ve been posting more client projects because I’m worried about them getting backlogged. And if I can be totally honest, they are overloading my phone. Seriously, my phone is full of photos and I can’t manage to find anything in the photo app without scrolling for minutes and minutes. (Anyone relate?) Speaking of, I have a great blog post in the works about how I’ve been using airdrop to quickly and easily get the photos off my phone, onto my computer and ready for blog entries. It’s pretty cool!
Many more personal blog posts are on the way as I have lots of incredible opportunities to share with you…like how I was invited to be a keynote speaker for a professional organizer conference (wow!!) and I’ve been invited back to NYC as a Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker this fall. Also have a great offer from Grove Collaborative coming next week that you definitely won’t want to miss…and a great photography bundle that’s on a flash sale next week for 2 days only. Really exciting happenings that I can hardly wrap my head around, to be frank.
Moving on to this white & marble closet I mentioned…get ready for a spike in heart rate.
This closet belongs to a single father of 2 and when he contacted about a closet design, delivering something extra special was on my agenda. He already had a gorgeous blank slate…
The view from his closet is to die for…a gorgeous green tree-filled landscape.
But let’s be honest – he needed a closet. Poor guy had managed to get ready this way for months.
The floor is so beautiful!
My closet designer and I came up with a design that would work for now, but we also left room for the closet to expand. What you can’t see is a deep section to the left of this window…
We left that area alone for future closet updating.
Once our design is completed and approved, it’s an agonizing 6 weeks for the material to arrive. I think I’m on pins and needles more than the homeowner. But on install day it’s smiles and excitement all around…
Yes, I’m the annoying organizer who’s there on install day, taking photos and interrupting their work. I’m kidding – they totally love me. #ithink
Once the closet was installed and clean, I snapped a few shots before I organized the contents…
He needed a lot of hanging space since he owns a large volume of dress shirts. He is a frequent traveler for work to various locations around the country, therefore he has a wardrobe for any climate.
ORGANIZED MASTER CLOSET
As you can imagine, I couldn’t wait to get his clothing off the floor and vertically organized in this beautiful new closet! I also added shirts he had hanging in a guest room closet and the contents of his entire bedroom dresser. He had plenty of room for everything. Have a peek…
( slack hangers )
He has most of his shirts dry cleaned therefore opted to keep them all on the dry clean hangers. This makes sense – there is no way he would have kept up with transferring shirts from a dry clean hanger to a different one. I just grabbed a few slack hangers that were streamlined and matched the closet.
( sweater bags )
In his t-shirt drawers, I made short stacks of shirts so he wouldn’t have to dig. He also admitted he would never have been able to maintain a file fold…
Entry to master closet heaven right here…
This was an incredible closet to design and was grateful he contacted me for help! Hope you enjoyed taking a peek into this before / after. Back soon guys!
