A Contemporary Closet for a Dentist and His Dog: Davis’ Story

What He Wanted


 
The proud owner of a 1920s-style bungalow—plus, a dog named Teddy—Davis Ligon was no stranger to renovation. After upgrading the home’s master bedroom and bathroom, the closet simply felt like a natural next step.

Though Davis had a clear image of the look he was trying to achieve—tailored, masculine—he needed somebody to help navigate the logistics and put the plan into action.

I’m very much into design—I’m a dentist, so aesthetics are big for me. I wanted [the closet] to have a more current style, but still in keeping with the classic nature of the house.

How we did it


 
Davis met with California Closets Charlotte design consultant Whitney Hahn for a consultation. The rest, he says, was history.

In order to maximize space, Whitney included ample shelving throughout, adding features like a pull-out rack and dual hampers to the mix. A lacquered finish, brass hardware, and even a center tower—complete with a display case for Davis’ cap collection—make the space feel more modern, just as Davis had hoped.

We really clicked. I had my own ideas, but [Whitney] was willing to listen and work with me. Of course, she was really good at coming up with the actual design—the nuts and bolts. She even came back [before the installation] to remeasure one of my suitcases.

It felt kind of like a magazine cover. I mean, I knew it was going to be good, but I was awestruck. My friends like to joke that I have a Kardashian closet.

Final Result


 
Despite having worked closely with Whitney throughout the process, Davis was still stunned by the final result. Davis, who admits that he’s “not the most organized person,” adds that his closet has worked to change all of that.

As for Teddy? It just may be his favorite room in the house.

I keep all my dress shirts on one side, and my normal day-to-day clothes on the other. It’s just nice to be able to keep things separate. [And] the extra storage is a game changer.
