The cherry on your icing and the hot pepper on your tamale, for your space!
We had talked about the idea of using a “design totem” to inspire and strengthen a theme in a prior post. Often time we find that light fixtures makes for great candidates since they naturally draws your attention to them, plus their object like quality and repeated nature further reinforce the idea behind your theme.
Which also means that finding the right light fixtures can make or break a design!
The Dream Closet Project returns, and it’s time for some changes here!
After a long hiatus from the Dream Closet project we have a whole lot of ideas ready to go and are anxious to get rolling. We also have a new contributor who’s ready to jump on board to help us with some ideas so keep an eye out for our future posts. To get the show rolling, we decided to talk about one of our greatest frustration with most of the closets we see; lights! Or the lack there of.
How to get things done, inside your closet!
Have you seem our latest post on corporate interior design link? Since we have been thinking and talking about office design, we thought; hey, let’s talk about home offices that fit inside a closet! There are actually quite a few examples for closets that fit inside a closet, since home office are usually only needed occasionally and don’t take up much spaces. Fitting them inside closets seems to be the perfect solutions!
What’s old is new again, a retro closet to go with your retro wardrobe!
As a designer constantly on the lookout for ideas, some time you find your inspiration and some time the inspiration finds you! While visiting a friend we couldn’t help cute notice the cute retro flip clock he had on his desk, it was distinctly styled and refreshingly mechanical. Turns out that by chance he found a huge collection of flip clocks that someone tossed, and had pick them up and stash them in his closet.
Ever hang a coat on back of a chair? Now you can do it in your closet also!
We are always on the lookout for things that we can easily add to our closet design that brings out lots of personality and character. Since we are working with a very limited amount of space, high light items that also serve a functional purpose is a huge plus. These ingenious hangers made out of used chair backs both bring a unique theme to your hanging area and serve a practical need. Although they are probably not the best for long term hanging of your delicate sweaters since they are sort of funky shaped but they would be great for areas of occasional use, like guest coat area.
And for our next trick, we’ll put a tree house in your closet!
