A new mystery contributor has appeared!
As promised, the dream closet project is returning with a bang! Over the next few weeks we will introduce a new guest contributor and a whole slew of new projects and ideas, so huddle close and stay tuned!
Speaking of our guest contributor, here at the Dream Closet project we felt strongly that the only way to get to know someone is by staring deep into their closet, inhale its scent and try to decipher their deepest desire and secrets.. we kid, we kid! But we do feel that to be true to our theme, the best way for us to introduce our new guest contributor is by showing you his (or her) closet!
We also like to mention the fact that we are planning on starting a project using this very closet, so all the more reason for us to take a look at it.
I see.. a regulation size NYC closet with a swing door.
On the similarity of interior design and dream interpretation.
Dream interpretation? What does that have to do with interior design? Well, for one it’s been said that a great designer will know what it is their client is looking for, before the client even realize it themselves. Sound like a psychic ability? Are we consulting crystal balls and astrological charts?
The secret is simple, architect and interior designer understand the power of the built environment and how they both shape and are shaped by the occupant of the space. Knowing how to read a space tells you a lot about the preference of the person and like interpreting dreams, you start by parring down the specifics to find the underlying theme and ideas that ultimately connect you to the personality.
For example, we tend to keep what we value the most physically higher in our home. This is why people keeps family photos and mementos on their wall. Similar thoughts occurs inside closets as well. And since I see luggages on the top shelves here, I am going to guess that the person in question enjoy traveling quite a bit.
On with even more speculative guessworks!
The closet is also well sorted using the hanging shoes organizer from Ikea, quite a few of them showing a strong preference. As oppose to open horizontal shelving, the shoes organizer provide distinct cubbies for individual pair of shoes. Which implies to me that the person in question is a list maker, since list metaphorically speaking provide cubbies for individual tasks.
But I am really cheating since I know who it is already! Not that we wouldn’t welcome idle speculation in our comment section..
