Small Walk-in Closet Design Reveal

disclosure: This post contains some affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.

One bonus of the new addition in our home, was a walk-in closet. It’s on the smaller size, so I turned to EasyClosets to help maximize every inch. As you may recall, the design was done virtually with EasyClosets and we installed it ourselves. Here are some images of the closet design and install in case you missed it.

The closet’s neutral color palette flows from the bedroom and bathroom. My starting point for the design was Cole & Son’s Great Wave wallpaper which was selected for an accent wall. The beautiful crashing wave design was inspired a 19th century Japanese woodprint.  To complement the coastal feel and grays in the wallpaper, I choose the driftwood finish for the cabinets and layered natural elements such as the jute rug and seagrass baskets.

Love the shoe rack! I can now display and find all of my favorites quickly!

The hutch drawer unit provides both me and my husband plenty of drawer and opening shelving. I love have counter space for jewelry and other trinkets.

Our Small Walk-in Closet Design

rough walk-in closet - simplified bee

One criteria for the new addition in our home was a walk-in closet for the master bedroom. The closet space is on the small side (roughly 6′ x 7′) and because it needed to be designed for me and my husband’s clothing, it had to be highly functional. I turned to and partnered with the nice folks at EasyClosets for help designing the perfect system for our closet. Over the phone and online, I worked with an EasyClosets designer to create a custom closet that maximizes storage from floor to ceiling and delivers a super stylish look. Functional and beautiful. Love!

Here’s a look at the overall design. As you can see we utilized several functional storage features including full-extension drawers, double hanging rods and a fabulous slanted shoe shelf. Once I placed the order it only took a few days for the boxes to arrive. Yes, there were quite a few boxes too!

The install was done by my husband. He knocked the whole project out in a weekend. Don’t have the time or not a weekend warrior? No worries, EasyClosets can help find a professional to install it for you.

For a clean look, I selected flat drawer fronts, driftwood finish and modern chrome pulls. I love how it came together and was so excited to start filling it with our shoes clothing and accessories. Next week, I’m going to be sharing more images of our small walk-in closet design. Stay tuned!

happy organizing,

cristin

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014: Boy’s Bedroom

Another charming kids space in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase was created by local design firm, Regan Baker Design.  The little boy’s bedroom (aka Little Roamers Room) was inspired by Regan Baker’s own children’s love of building forts.

Taking center stage is a darling denim tent hung from the ceiling. It can even be expand across the room to create a giant playhouse. How fun is that! I also love the hanging lantern centered inside the tent. So darn cute!

Here’s a closer look at the bed layered in throw pillows, wool blanket and bed sheets from Serena & Lily. Love that sweet stuffed chicken too and animal pocket dolls from Coral & Tusk!

The homeowner asked Regan to incorporate the existing 1970s wallpaper. The zig zag parade of animals in orange and white inspired the tribal artwork and southwestern inspired textiles also found throughout the space.

How cute is the closet with map wallpaper, arrows and darling clothing from Tea Collection?

The showhouse is open through May 26th, so there is still time for you to tour. Also, for more information on this boy’s room, visit Regan’s blog!

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 :: Blue Boys Bedroom

The San Francisco Decorator Showcase for 2014, located at 3660 Jackson Street in the city’s upscale Presidio Heights neighborhood is open! Although I haven’t been able to tour it yet, I wanted to share some images of the darling boys bedroom by interior designer, Shelley Cahan of  Shelley & Company. Do you remember her dressing room in last year’s showhouse?

The retreat for the little gentleman is called “Little Boy Blu” and is inspired by a nostalgic sense of adventure. Both sophisticated and playful, the space is filled with rich patterns, muted shades of blue and vintage inspired furnishings and textiles (Restoration Hardware and Serena & Lily). The homeowners asked Shelley to keep the whimsical blue and white wallpaper by Pierre Frey which ended up be a launching point for the room’s design.

Decorative ceilings are the best and I love the aircraft blueprint inspired ceiling in this room. Such a fun way to inspire a little boy to dream, travel and see the world!

How cute is the “BLU” sign in the closet?!

Shelley has a beautiful way of layering and the dresser vignette above is a great example.

I’ll be sharing more of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase in the upcoming weeks, but if you are in the area I encourage you to tour the home. Here’s more details and how to purchase tickets.

happy decorating,
