I’ve made a pact with myself. Gone will be the days wearing gym clothes or jean shorts all day (or whatever shirt was left on the chair overnight…ouch). I’ve promised myself to spend at least half as much time focusing on what I wear, as I do on interiors. Instead of carousing fabric stores online at night, I should be buying clothes!!! I’m off for a trip for two weeks, and need to look appropriate for meetings…so I decided to start with some last minute shopping in my favorite store – my closet. I wish it was twice as big, with room for a chic Kelly Wearstler wallpaper. But it’s still one of my favorite places in the house. I’m not really sure why?

How many of us haven’t spent endless house staring at our closet, wondering what to wear, while complaining about some part of our body? I’m not sure what age that behavior started. Having a nice, organized closet is something everybody loves. Whether it’s a small closet, or a room in your house….make it nice. You will spend hours there!!!

Here’s an old refinished armoire with part of the door taken out for easy viewing.

A fun wall papered nook. No confusion about whose territory this is.

A neat, nice green closet.

Aerin Lauder’s enviable closet. I could live in there and be happy. That desk is is fantastic!! Who makes that? Does anyone of you know??

The closet can be your office, your dressing room, your artists retreat…Did you see the Joan Rivers movie? She paints in her closet!!! What do you do in yours?

Just like men have their “man caves”, women can have a room just for themselves. This is Olivia Wilde’s “wild” closet.

Kelly Wearstler’s closet.

A wallpapered room just for you and your things. The best closet is the well edited closet. I try to follow the rule to give away everything I haven’t worn in two years.

Love Nicky Hilton’s glamorous closet. The black and white Dorothy Draper inspired closet doors are impossibly chic. Hmm…maybe in my next house.

Woodson & Rummerfield’s design is perfect for a pop princess. But having that many shoes would seriously stress me out. I could never decide which ones to wear.

Cool closet doors.

This is a regular room used as a glamorous dressing room and closet. Would you dare taking a whole room in your house as a closet? It’s tempting…

Tory Burch chevron patterned closet. I bet she knows why she loves her closet….

    Jill,
    My closet is a very well organized walk in with lots of drawers, shelving and plenty of places to hang our clothes….but I truly wish I had more glam lighting and the walls were papered in something fabulous! I love all the images here…so inspiring!!! I especially love the one with the "cool" doors and the last one belonging to Tory Birch!

    [...] Seek old wallpaper, vintage or new, and line your shelves or drawers for a punch of pattern and color. Men should consider a tie organizer to store ties so you can see them at a quick glance. via Live Like You [...]

    Closets area unit a really personal issue. Your closet contains all the garments that you just dress yourself with – and, for the foremost half, you’re the sole one UN agency steps foot within it on a routine. I’m forever therefore interested to urge a peek into people’s closets. i like to envision their whole wardrobe along collectively, and that i conjointly like to verify however their closets area unit organized.

    On October 15, 2008, a spokeswoman confirmed that Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie plan to divorce, which
    generated more magazine covers like Us Weekly, People magazine, OK magazine and Life
    & Style magazine. Currently we have the BBC new rendition of Sherlock Holmes
    influencing men’s fashion – young, flowing and vibrant.

    Effectively, I’ve discovered a way to get gorgeous wedding gowns and even designer wedding gowns for a fraction of the
    original price.

    Most Internet marketers are looking for a “get rich quick” solution for their problems, and
    they come into this industry without learning
    the basics. You need to know which ones can rank, and what the competition is like for each one.
