Dirty little secret: My Closet

  1. Belly says:

    I can't believe it! I'm just going to pick up a floral wallpaper I bought on ebay for our guest closet. That's too funny. My closet is fairly tidy since we moved, but my fabric dresser in my office is a mess. I get dizzy just looking at it!

  2. Shorely Chic says:

    I would LOVE to do something like this in my closet – I do share it with Brian so not sure how he would feel about bright flowers, but maybe a funky stripe or something!

    I'm afraid your closet and mine look verrrry similar :/

    You're definitely not the only one-I'm the kind of person that likes everything you see to look tidy and put together; my closets and drawers are a totaly mess and it makes me crazy. I would love to have a pretty floral closet and adore your vintage wallpaper picks (also really really love the magnolia paper in the inspiration shot by C&S/Westwood- I want the rug version of that paper badly!!!) My favourite is the pink and orange floral- very pretty!

    Such a fun, unexpected surprise…love it!!

  5. Sara says:

    Please tell me that you are going to show us VERY detailed after pictures! I loved your vanity organization. I have a large closet, the rest of my house is tiny (900 sq ft), so I am always looking for fun & colorful ways to make it more fun. I like to think of it as its separate room that I like to hide in when life gets too chaotic.

  6. Amelia says:

    Cute idea! BTW, I sent you an email with instructions on how to make the Leontine Linen-inspired pillows. Hope it went through!

  7. Lynett says:

    You're not the only one with a messy closet. I'm a neat freak but my closet it always a mess…what to do?

    : O

    WOAH. I'm sure you've got the itch to organize after your vanity post the other day. I did an overhaul on our closte a while back. It's very cathartic!



  9. Sweet Nothings says:

    closet organization is probably my top project of 2011…I need to get it done. its mayhem..I think purely to keep my good bags and shoes from losing their resale value it needs to be a top priority. cant sqauash the birkin since George ate the box. I've been assembling pictures to get some inspiration..I wonder if my dad will "let" me use some it bad I still ask for his approval even though I own my place?

  10. The Brady Blog says:

    I had the same problem until last weekend! I spent my entire Saturday organizing my closet. For small spaces, I've found that a coat rack can be a cute way to hang and organize (and display!) accessories – I have used mine for bags and scarves, but retired it once I got a bigger walk-in closet 🙂

  11. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    im sure you will do wonders!! the KS one was fab indeed, very impressed in general with the whole bedroom!! the red one is so cute!

  12. Danielle Oakey Interiors says:

    haha, i have the same problem, my husband hates it! I have always wanted to wallpaper my closet, can't wait to see what you do!

  13. LindsB says:

    Nope, you are not the only one. In fact I just went nuts cleaning my closet yesterday because I found two holes in two BRAND new sweaters. I swear if I have moths I am going to FREAK! I am placing a bulk order or ceder blocks and lavender asap- those suckers need to stay out of my closet!

  14. Jessica @ Decor Adventures says:

    I saw recently on House Hunters or something where the room is a neutral and the closet is a bright pop of color like orange or green. It looked great!

  15. Katie @ Noodle and Boof says:

    oh lord! that is tiny! i have 2 closets and use every last inch. it's so easy to let it get out of control….but it's so nice when it's all organized!

  16. Jenna says:

    No, you're not the only one :o) But I do absolutely love a well organized and pretty closet. If one has the space, closets have such potential! And if one doesn't have the space, it's a good opportunity to only keep what you truly like and need. Good luck with yours!

  17. Lissa @ After Adornment says:

    You are definetly not alone….mine is the same! Too small and all piled in there. I love this idea of adding some pizazz with wallpaper or even paint! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  18. The Consummate Hostess says:

    What a fabulous and unexpected pop! I am with you, my closet is an official nightmare. Perhaps I should take this as a sign to get it in order with style!

  19. Carolyn says:

    One of the reason the KS closet looks so great is that there isn't much in it. It's tough for something to look organized if it's packed with clothes- it's a problem I know I have- I just have to keep purging and I even rotate stuff seasonally but still it's hard- it's really tough for me to get rid of shoes and bags especially!

  20. Kathysue says:

    Oh no my dear, I have a secret in just about every closet and drawer in my house,hehe. I am also in the mood to do some purging and re-arranging. It looks like we will both be doing some cleaning in the weeks to come I am not doing wallpaper but love the idea, can't wait to see yours, Kathysue

  21. Sarah says:

    great wall paper choices. my closet is neat and sorted by items and color. i guess i am weird like that. i want to paint my RH silver sage, get an ottoman and cover it in RG chevron, add a rug (not sure which) and a pretty chandi. much luck with yours !

  22. Estate Lawyers says:

    that green closet is super cute and fresh i love it. also the floral pieces at last

  23. Botox Melbourne says:

    i found one closest as messy as mine :p
    i hate my flatmate touch my heels though they are mess in the closet, i know each pair of them

  24. Jessica @ Acting Adult says:

    I love the idea of sprucing up your closet! You're in there so much in the morning and it would make me so happy to have it be clean and pretty. Thanks for the idea!

  25. Sheila Zeller says:

    I love the wallpaper idea! Thank you for sharing :-)…and I so totally get the small closet challenge – this link might give you some ideas to run with!
    Your projects are practical, inspirational, and I always look forward to your posts. Thank you!!!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
