I have had a huge crush on Megan’s closet for quite a long time and am really excited to show it off today. I’m sure you have seen this gorgeous closet around blog land because it is pretty much every girl’s dream closet! A BIG thank you to Megan for showing it off as part of “the week of chic” series. You must check out her blog to see more of her beautiful home.
Hi all! I’m Megan from Honey We’re Home, a blog that chronicles my efforts to decorate our home that we recently built, while chasing my one year old son around, and working part-time as a lawyer. I found Abbe’s blog and have been hooked ever since. She is one of my absolute favorite designers and I love how she gives us the previews of her work on her blog.
Today, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite places in our home, my closet! Come on in, let me show you around!
I knew that when we had the opportunity to build our home that a nice-sized closet with lots of storage space would be a dream come true. We designed the closet to include an island with cubbies in the middle, a shoe rack, built-in dresser, adjustable hanging shelves, and shelves for purses. The chandelier, called Lucia, was just the icing on the cake:)
One of the keys to organizing my closet is editing. I am constantly reviewing what I have and donating or giving away what I’m not wearing or doesn’t fit. Lightweight sweaters are hung using children’s white plastic hangers from Target. I like folding them over the hanger versus hanging them because it keeps the shoulders from getting annoying points. Yes, that’s my wedding dress in the back. What do you do with that?? The Tory Burch bags are empty, I just like the pattern.
Pants are hung on wire hangers from Bed, Bath and Beyond and jeans are on small felt hangers that won’t bow in the middle.
Before the shoe rack was built, I counted my shoes to see how much space I’d need. Then I had the top shelf taken out so I could put boots there.
On the right side of the island, I keep my tank tops, casual long sleeve shirts, and shorts/capri pants.
On the left, storage bins from Target hold belts, bikinis, and scarves. The zebra ottoman is from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for having me today Abbe!
