dreams...


My closet is too small.

I have just uttered (written) words that almost everyone can relate to. Nothing special, different or interesting about my situation. It's not that I want or need more clothes. It's the dream of space. Great space that allows to actually see what you have instead of trying to cram it into a too small container. I have organized and thinned out the heard and yet, yet, the closet feels just like that, a closet.

I'm perfectly fine with most of the size of my home. It's was built in the 1920's and rooms were modest in size. I'm cool with that, but when it comes to the bathrooms and closets I have found myself to be envying spaces that are just sinful.

Look at this closet. Look at it! It's crazy. Who lives there? Who is this person and why do I covet this closet? It is bigger than my bedroom.
It's too much but I love it!

Nice wardrobe and luggage as well.

I agree - I love the contemporary aesthetic - but I can tell you that in my ten years of designing closets - no one would ever leave that much open walk space. Plus there are more effecient ways to fit in all of your stuff and still have it be beautiful - check out my website for ideas - http://www.ButchkoAndCompany.com

It almost appears that they took a hallway and incorporated it into a closet.

Who lives here you ask. From the wardrobe I'm guessing it might be some high financier on Wallstreet. I definitely know it can't be Imelda Marcos as there isn't any shoes. :)

I agree, it is crazy but...... fantastic!

It is pretty envy worthy.

I actually was at a home one where they were two (his & hers) closets almost similar in size and style. I almost moved in.

I love this closet. I have had dreams where I bump out the side of my bedroom and then I have a dream closet.

Okay this is not someones closet... It can't be, and where is all of their colorful clothing? Are we trying to LIVE in the closet too? LoL not one bit of color which tells me this is just a staged closet not actually used. But it IS Beautiful. :) ~Tawny Pipit~

Seriously gorgeous! I have to tell you, I have a friend in NYC who has a closet that looks almost this. It's as big as this one and the look is very similar. You should see the rest of his place. Every time I visit I think, "THIS NYC I can live with!"

Love. Love. Love this closet. I hope you get this closet and more. I love your style and your TV personality.

I was doing a walk through of a home when the contractor had a question for the owner about the master closet. It was one of those amazing "rooms" with an island in the middle. Before he left, he said "I just have to ask you something else. Do you really have this many clothes?" The owner winked at me and replied, "Not yet!"

PS I have a case of closet-envy, too!

That's some sick closet space. Sign me up for his salary!

Like you, Angelo, I live in an old house (1939) - it had teeny-tiny closets! How I would have loved a closet similar to the one you're sharing!! But when we renovated I opted for a wall of wardrobes that really meet my needs - and I'm happy, happy, happy!!
