Closet Rehab









In my first few blog posts, I’d been focusing so much on the personal shopping aspect of what I do that I started feeling like I had been neglecting to share a HUGE part of the other things I do at The Coveted Life-Closet Makeovers…!  So I’m really excited about this post.  It’s a closet project I just finished, that I designed & managed…heartheartheartI worked closely with William Wallace Closets to convert what was just a cluttered mess, into a space that my clients truly loved being in – a space that functioned & flowed fluently down to every last detail. We closed off a window (Thanks for that idea Leslie Newman @ Space Interior Design) to give my clients more appropriately placed hanging space, tore down an obstructive shoe tower & replaced it with an island. We used contemporary style flat front doors (some mirrored, some not) along with contemporary pulls. We took a wall of wasted space that had a useless ironing board and replaced it with a mirrored shoe closet. What I LOVE about this, is that the shoe closet functions not only as just that, but it doubles as the couple’s full length mirror. There was also a lack of drawer space, so we removed some of the hanging rods & installed drawer systems. We continued the antelope print carpet used in the master bedroom into the closet that was purchased from Modern Flooring-LOVE EVERYONE THERE by the way…!  If you’re in New Orleans, that’s totally the place to go for any flooring or tile needs.  To save my clients some bucks, we used this fabulous antique mirror that wasn’t being used in the house, and the chandelier that was in their dining room, that they no longer needed in that space. And I love a closet with art, books, flowers…  All of it.  If the client has enough space, I treat their closets like any other rooms in their house and I accessorize them.  Here you’ll see some before & afters–everyone loves those ☺–and you’ll also see me working on the finishing touches while getting my clients completely organized & happy in the end…
