At Closet Factory, we see a lot of closets- big, small, square and odd-shaped. Every once in awhile, we also see one with a lot of personality.
When designer Jana Henderson first met her, LaDawn S. had made the decision to turn her current office into a closet, but she needed help figuring out how to best use the space to store and display her gorgeous clothing, accessories and collection of shoes. Knowing this would be her space, LaDawn wanted it to reflect her bubbly personality. She painted one wall bubblegum pink and lined the two other walls with wallpaper striped in black, white, and the same bubblegum pink color. The doors on the original reach-in closet were removed so that the space would become part of the room. A white chair with fun zebra-print cushions and fuzzy rug completed the look.
To keep the focus on the decor and the wardrobe, Jana built the closet out of white melamine with black crown and base molding to add a little drama and stay with the room’s color scheme. To display LaDawn’s incredible collection of shoes, she dedicated a majority of one wall to slanted shoe shelves with Lucite (clear) toe stops. “Originally, I wanted to have my shoes on the opposite wall, but Jana suggested putting them here so that when people are passing my closet, this is the first thing they’d see.” Says LaDawn. The rest of the wall is dedicated to purse cubbies and hanging for skirts and shorts.
Jana devoted the opposite wall, as well as the reach-in closet, to hanging and shelving for the rest of LaDawn’s wardrobe. To save money, and because it’s a beautiful piece of furniture, Jana suggested moving LaDawn’s current dresser into the room, creating a focal point and providing much-needed drawer space.
The final product is a bright, happy space where LaDawn can admire her wardrobe and begin her day on a positive note! So, how did LaDawn feel about her new closet? Check out her testimonial video here!
