Interior Project: Single Space

Designer Dream Closet

The goal of this remarkable closet project was to turn an existing bedroom and bathroom into a dream closet—one that would give the homeowners a space to proudly display their wardrobes and luxury items, as well as be a welcoming retreat for morning and evening routines. Boutique storefronts and jewel-box projects inspired the clients, who turned the design direction over to the project team to create a unique, colorful and inviting space that excels as both a dressing room and a hangout spot.

Throughout the renovation, the project team had to find clever ways to fit a long list of goals and details into a confined space. Thus, each layer of installation took time and precision. For instance, the mirror comprises more than 50 pieces, creating design, fabrication and installation challenges. Custom cabinetry—featuring a 12-foot span of metal rods with no visible brackets—and a hidden shoe closet required extensive planning, as well. The endeavor was well worth it, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dream closet that truly fits the clients’ personalities.
