Noora Raj Brown knows how to nurture a good brand. After all, she’s EVP of Brand at Goop. And that savvy extends to Noora’s personal brand, defined by a colorful and playful wardrobe. But that wardrobe needed a closet with a better-functioning design.

The home’s L-shaped space lacked efficient storage and display, so she and her husband Ryan reached out to designer Katharine Mills-Tierney of California Closets Los Angeles for a custom walk in solution that would meet their needs for space — and design. The couple admits to divergent tastes: she prefers bold color while he likes classic elegance.

Creative ideation is a big part of my job, and having a space that feeds that is essential to me.

Given the room’s layout, with the entrance in the corner, Katharine had to get creative to maximize all usable space.

There were also some tricky ceiling angles and a soffit to work around. But designing the entire system at one consistent height would visually minimize the variations in the ceiling.

Next, Katharine took inventory of Noora and Ryan’s clothes and accessories to determine their storage needs. She added plenty of tall hanging sections — both open and behind elegant glass doors — for Noora’s flowy dresses with large cubbies above for her bags and purses. Double hang sections for each of them neatly organize blouses and skirts for her and suits and separates for him. A 10-shelf, floor-to-ceiling cabinet holds the couple’s shoes and boots.

This closet has many functions for me: it’s my cloffice and my favorite place to play with my daughter (she loves picking out clothes for me to wear).
