Recent Project: Closet Set Design (AFTER PHOTOS!)
Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine was busy and productive (which I thrive on!). Yesterday I added the finishing touches to the closet set I designed for my client Kiyonna (which I blogged about here last month). Kiyonna is a fabulous woman's clothing company and the owner wanted to create a stylish closet "set" design that would act as a backdrop to create videos on their latest collections, clients, etc. The goal was to create an expensive looking closet on a budget, which was absolutely doable. Because the closet was going to act as a backdrop to showcase mostly clothing with some color and pattern, I wanted to keep the color palette fresh and neutral. The design scheme was centered around sophistication and glamour, featuring a sparkly chandelier, tons of fun shoes, handbags and a few decorative accessories. Directly below is a snapshot of what the space looked like before, and the rest are details on the "after"! Now if only I could take the time to design my own closet to look this way...someday, right?!
Enjoy and have a great weekend. I'll be celebrating my 31st Birthday on Sunday with family and friends. I'm looking forward to it :) xoxo - Julie

After brainstorming my client, this was the revised design concept we settled on...
(the room was cleaned out and re-designed to look like a luxury walk-in closet)
Just above the vanity area we painted alternating stripes in neutral colors, which was an inexpensive alternative to wallpaper. The framed letter "K" represents the company brand.
The chandelier we ordered from Overstock.com was fabulous and super affordable!
I scored this cream leather chair trimmed with silver nailheads from HomeGoods!
The closet was designed using IKEA's Pax System, which has components you can mix and match to create a custom closet to fit your space and needs.
I kept the accessories minimal and clean. The last think I wanted to do was over-accessorize and leave the closet looking cluttered.
