An Executive’s Well-Appointed Walk-In Closet
What He Wanted
As a working professional, Smith needed a closet that could handle his office wardrobe, as well as his personal one. He wanted a masculine space in which he'd be able to see everything by standing in one place and turning around in a circle. He also wanted to incorporate a wide range of lighting options so that everything in the closet would be discoverable and colors easily differentiated.
How we did it
While the space had sloped ceilings, Kelley made it feel as uniform as possible with the overall design. She used a lighter material, Lago® Cassini Beach, with Lago® Venetian Wenge backing and a leather counter top to create a masculine tone to the space. By adding a light box with puck lights, as well as strip lighting in every partition, the space was illuminated from every direction. She even created a special area for Smith’s watch winders. Because he's on the taller side, the design was able to utilize vertical space without worrying about any accessibility issues, giving him all the space he needed for his wardrobe and more.
This was a space just for my client so that he could stand and see all of his clothing and accessory options at once. It’s like a high-end clothing store that he shops at on a daily basis.
The closet's overall design had that masculine vibe that Smith wanted and felt more like a men's luxury boutique than a personal closet — yet more efficient.
