Guess what I am working on today?
It involves this room.
Lots of clothes. Shoes. Linens. And bags of donations getting ready to go off.
And it involves a little bit of planning.
We are getting ready to refresh one closet and redo another in the next month or so
and I am SO EXCITED.
Our master closet is on the small and narrow side. As with all closets in this house and most older homes- they are not big on square feet or dazzle features like those dream closets of today.
And that is okay. I honestly am not a big clothes horse. I kind of wear the same colors and classic pieces over and over again and have elements that work with those pieces for a fresh look. Though, something I am working on this year is adding in a bit more fashion- so, I am finding inspiration in walking on the wild side when it comes to clothes. And by wild side- I mean clothing other than black and denim. haha. 🙂
When we spruced up our closet a couple of years ago- we added cedar planks and a few fun closet elements which made a big difference in the amount of storage we had- and we added a rug cut to size to cover the floor. It was a simple quick and easy update- and it definitely made a difference in how we used the closet and space. But… It was always a bit on the dark side for me.
And I am ready for a refresh.
I would love something like the dream closet my friend Rachel had in her last home
(cannot wait to see the new one)

Our space is quite small in comparison – so we are exploring a couple of ideas for expansion- but also ways to incorporate the look of a more luxurious feeling closet.

This is how our closet looks currently –
I’m pinning away and taking cues from dream closets that I love and seeing what might work in an average size walk in closet in an old house.
Even though the closets I am saving and taking inspiration from are GRAND- there are definite things that I see can work in the smaller spaces as well and I will share more about
the process once we get started.
We are also tackling the little cottage bedroom- which is in much need of some better closet and storage solutions.
See all the inspiration saved on my pinterest board here.
And for those of you who have remodeled a closet recently- any tips?
Must have storage pieces or elements?
Happy Wednesday everyone.
Something light, bright, airy…
is it even possible in a closet that is this size?
The look and feel I would love are like these inspirations.
