Garage Greatness for Organizer Peter Walsh
Client Story: Peter Walsh - California Closets Orange County

What He Wanted

Renowned organizer Peter Walsh knows how to banish clutter. For years he has helped his clients create a discipline for keeping spaces neat and orderly. During the extensive renovation of their own home, Peter and his partner, Ken Greenblatt, shared a vision for optimizing every space. The couple turned to California Closets Orange County, collaborating with design consultant Preston Mitchell on a custom garage solution combining maximum utility with the sensibility of their mid-century modern home.

Working with California Closets has really helped make my life more organized, more beautiful and easier to access the things I own.

How we did it

Preston worked closely with Peter and Ken, as well as with their interior designer, to address every detail. As a special workplace for Peter, the garage needed to have ample cabinetry to house oversized items, as well as a workbench area for storing tools, and hanging support for miscellaneous garden equipment and other items. In addition to streamlined storage, Preston’s design— featuring a sleek Aluminum finish—echoed the rest of the home’s clean and contemporary style.

Peter and Ken could not have been more gracious, flexible, responsive and fun to work with.

With a place for everything, the transformed space provides a more productive environment, with a design that looks good enough for Peter to work with the garage door open.
