I am in No Way a "girly girl". I am not into make up, jewelry or high heeled shoes but I do love my clothes. I am such a true believer that your closet should be a showcase for your clothes, that I created my whole career around it! Your beautiful clothes should have a beautiful space to live!
Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some people love clean simple lines. Others love bolder statements of style but none of that matters as long as the person loves their space. I have seen it all. I have had clients with library ladders in their closets, pull-out sleeper sofas, a bar, television and work out equipment......but my favorite spaces have always been the ones I would call "girly". Pretty, sweet, warm, cozy, all of those adjectives can apply. I have only day dreamed of having a closet big enough to "girlify" but have thought a lot about what elements I would include. Here they are. The 4 ways to bring out the "girly" in your closet:
COLOUR: Colour can add so much character to a space. Add color in the units you use, a chair or pouffe or in art on any spare wall space. Choose colours that you love, That make you feel warm and fuzzy and that make you happy. Matching is optional as far as I am concerned! The more fun you have with it the better!
LIGHTING: Lighting can mean a beautiful ceiling fixture, a crazy table lamp or a multitude of candles. You can create an ambiance that reflects your mood just by playing with the lighting. If you have a plain lampshade...though a scarf over it and add even more colour to the space!
FLOWERS: Real or fake, flowers just add warmth to a room. If you can invest in real flowers you will have the added bonus of a wonderful scent! Flowers make people happy (especially girls/women).
BLING: Now Bling can take you anywhere.......from crystals, to statuettes, to jewelry on the wall, antique dolls, vintage bags....the imagination can go wild. Experiement with bling to bring out the dreamiest part of yourself and create a space that is joyful.
PLAY...PLEASE PLAY with your spaces. Organizing can be fun! Enjoy!
