What They Wanted

For newlyweds Ari and Arturo Perez, home is where life happens. Except life, they found, could use a bit more room than two small walk-in closets had to offer. So shortly before tying the knot, the couple came up with a smart solution: to convert an unused guest room into a gorgeous, spacious closet.

How we did it

The couple discovered California Closets by
walking into the San Antonio showroom. There
they met design consultant Misty Rodriguez and instantly hit it off.

She could right away tell what we wanted. She pulled out a computer, pulled up some designs, and it was as though [the design] was right there.

Ari Perez

Ari had just started her own blog, The Toasty Life. She worked from home, which meant her new space had to double as both a work space and a stylish backdrop for frequent bouts of inspiration.

Misty worked closely with the couple to create a well-organized, custom closet—one that could likewise serve as an office space for Ari. She even pointed out modifications that could be made throughout the coming years to help the newlyweds prepare for a limitless future.

When we think about our California Closets designer,
we definitely think of her as a friend.

Final Result

Since Ari had been present throughout the process, it was Arturo who was pleasantly surprised by the installation, which took less than a day.

The proud new owner of a closet that epitomizes order and elegance, Ari can even use the space to shoot photos and videos for her blog. But she isn’t the only California Closets convert. In fact, Arturo—who enjoys working on cars—plans to use California Closets for his next project: the garage!

It made me happy that she was happy.
