Chic Southern Charm for Fashion Blogger Caitlin Covington

What She Wanted

Beauty, quality, and exceptional function—these were the qualities that Southern Curls and Pearls blogger Caitlin Covington wanted reflected in her dream closet. When she first moved into her home, the master closet left much to be desired. Despite being a large space with high ceilings and lovely natural light, its existing storage design made the space difficult to enjoy and properly utilize, and older carpeting didn’t exactly enhance the room’s aesthetic appeal. When Caitlin was ready to transform the space and bring her discerning vision to life, she collaborated with California Closets North Carolina design consult Amber Colo to achieve exactly what she wanted.

I wanted to take advantage of all the empty wall space—a design that would be both functional and pretty with crystal knobs, a chandelier and even a wall of shoes! Amber nailed EVERY single detail I wanted!

How we did it

Amber worked closely with Caitlin on a custom organizational solution to elegantly optimize the whole room. An entire wall for hanging plus ample drawers and shoe storage accommodated Caitlin’s wardrobe, while shelving designed with pretty glass doors provided a perfect perch for her collection of handbags. Amber also incorporated special details such as a built-in window seat with drawers and velvet-lined jewelry cabinet. Finally, a full-length mirror and vanity created a sense of openness, and also reflected the room’s overall design which Caitlin further enhanced with a chandelier, tufted ottoman, and new floors.

I wanted to give Caitlin a luxurious space with a true WOW factor. She shoots inside her closet often for her blog so it was really important that the space feel clean and composed.
