Lindsey Holcomb won a closet makeover valued at $5,000. California Closets design consultants helped her transform a dorm room-style closet into a stunning walk-in with unique accessories.

Lindsey’s story:

Lindsey was a successful professional with an organizational system that felt like a “dorm room”.

She had moved 20 times since college so she had never invested in a permanent organizing solution. But now, she had just purchased her first home and she was engaged. Lindsey was ready for a sophisticated solution that matched her lifestyle.

“Please give us the ultimate wedding gift of serenity!” Lindsey pleaded.

The California Closets solution:

Design consultant Kristen Dollison and West Palm Beach California Closets president Dawn Huet worked with Lindsey and her fiancé Omar to redesign their walk-in closets to be functional, accessible and stylish.

The new design made better use of their spacious walk-in closet by optimizing the abundant vertical space they had.

Now the master bedroom closet includes plenty of shelves, drawers, and hanging rods for their entire wardrobes, as well as unique closet accessories like belt racks, tie racks and a valet rod.

The couple was thrilled with the transformation!

"I couldn't be more thrilled and shocked at the same time," said Lindsey. “It took a moment for the reality to actually sink in, but this couldn't be a more perfect wedding present."
