What They Wanted

For the the 2016 Hampton Designer Showhouse presented by Traditional Home, California Closets designer Theresa Caccavale created stunning, hers and his walk-in closets off the property’s master suite.

Taking cues from the home’s contemporary-meets-classic sensibility, Theresa wanted to showcase the dramatic design potential of both spaces. Starting with creating impact and increasing visual depth, Theresa decided to integrate a combination of finishes, mirrors and seamless accent lighting.

“There is a wow factor in the simple elegance of great design and to echo the home’s style and add a little character, I wanted to present cohesive spaces that each had its own flavor.”– Theresa Caccavale, design consultant

The Hampton Designer Showhouse

How we did it

After meeting with the builder, Theresa’s vision for both spaces included clean lines and simple shaker fronts with modern glass and mirror touches.

In the larger ‘her’ closet, she chose multi-tone finishes in a grey scale that blended beautifully with the color of the wood stained floor. Select highlights also included white gloss fronts, matching polished chrome and white gloss handles, and glass and mirrored fronts, while the smaller ‘his’ closet featured darker grey gloss front accents.

Thoughtful LED lighting brought dimension to the glass door cabinets in both closets, while a standout, illuminated back panel shoe wall in ‘her’ closet was a focal design element, generating an ambient glow and showcasing treasured pieces.

final result

Impeccably lit and styled, both final closets embraced a timeless and luxurious feel that was perfect for this Hamptons home.
