{ every giant closet needs a mannequin }

Although we’ve yet to take down the X-mas tree, It’s time for a new home re-do project! After years spent with closets covered from floor-to-ceiling in tiny, yet adorable apartments, we finally have an extra room for me to play with… and turn into a walk-in dreamland.

While discussing wishes for my birthday this month, I suggested to Husband Pants that we give the ten boxes of my clothes and vintage goodies their own space. We decided to move my craft studio to the basement, combining it with the spare bedroom downstairs and turn the former studio space into a walk-in closet. Gush!


I’ve been having flashes of Carrie Bradshaw’s closet while dreaming up the layout of the room. We’re starting almost from scratch, leaving the pegboard wall my Dad built to use to display jewelry, hats, scarves, and bags. The walls are white (for now) and the floor is the same hardwood as the rest of the house.

So, now it’s time for some good ‘ol fashioned planning. I’ve been digging through hundreds of photos of closets on Flickr for ideas. What would you wish for (other than maybe Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobe) in your dream closet?

P.S. check out more photos of un-earthed goodies in my walk*in Flickr set.
