It has to be one of our most coveted wishlist items. Organized rows of shoes… Department-store worthy stacks of sweaters… A folding island… Every bag perfectly in its place… A chic, glamorous closet is the ultimate accessory in a well-appointed home. We are drooling over each and every one of these. Join us, won’t you?

Closet Organizing in the New Year

Happy New Year!  The New Year and organizing seem to go hand and hand with us.  And these closets have us inspired!  We thought we had a lot of shoes. But that was before we saw Nancy Gonzalez’s closet. Now she has a lot of shoes. And, thankfully, a lot of closet to go with them!

But you don’t have to have hundreds of pairs of shoes appreciate a good closet–and the beautiful wood in this one.

And, me oh my, these gorgeous mirrored doors…

But your clothes don’t have to have practically an address of their own for your closet to be gorgeously neat and streamlined.

In fact, we’d venture to say that even Howard Slatkin’s impeccably designed and sophisticated closet would look bad if it was a jumbled mess with clothes and shoes scattered all around the floor.

On the flip side, even a small closet can look fabulous with the right lights and the proper organization.

Shoes lined in perfect rows add to the impeccable style of any storage space.

A closet that looks like a boutique is a gorgeous choice, if you ask us. It takes the meaning of “shopping in your closet” to a whole new level!

But, then again, everything tucked away behind those beautiful doors is a great option too.

A clean, organized closet is the best way to start the day, if you ask us. Flipping on the light to reveal rows of immaculately organized items that are a cinch to find makes it easier to see what’s there, to get dressed, and sets the tone for a calming and wonderful day ahead.

If it’s big enough for an island to stash accessories….

And comes complete with beautiful brass lights, all the better!

A chaise in the closet? This is the dream, we think. But, whether your closet is spacious enough to hold furniture or barely big enough to eek out space for all your clothes, there’s no question that an organized closet is a great way to start the day — and the new year!

We don’t know about you, but we tend to do better on the closet cleaning

Because here’s the thing: We’re great at getting the closets organized. Fabulous, actually.

We have all the special organizing stuff and pretty baskets and can fold Barney’s-worthy stacks of sweaters.

And it will stay that way for awhile.

But then a huge load of dry cleaning comes in and we can’t tackle it right that second.

Or that “perfect outfit” looks perfectly hideous and it’s five minutes before we have to walk out the door and suddenly, this pretty, bare carpet is strewn with fifteen outfits.

Mimosa Lane 


Our blog friend Albertina from Mimosa Lane participated in the One Room Challenge with a gorgeous, totally inspiring closet redo. And we are sure that after all her hard work that her closet is still just this pristine! (Love that paint color!)

So chic — and the little window seat is adorable! We bet she drinks champagne while she closet cleans too… Well, or mimosas!

Liz Caan Interiors


So, we’re going to take a page from Albertina’s book and get elbow-deep in closet cleaning once again. Because everyone needs a fresh start every now and then, right?

What’s the state of your closet? Is it totally orderly a little bit messy?

Thanks for stopping by today. We always love it when you do!
