Tell us a little bit about your clients and their design needs. I mainly worked with an interior designer from the firm Ten Plus Three on this project —he was creating a walk-in master retreat for a couple with young children. The clients had exquisite taste and wanted a design that reflected their personal style but also fit into their busy lifestyle.

What was their home like? The clients' home is very transitional — they have a lot of antique pieces as well as contemporary pieces. Newly remodeled, the home was notably featured in Southern Living magazine.

What are some of the key features of the design you created? I created a mix of open and closed storage so the clients could showcase some of their treasured items — her shoes and purses, in particular. Ribbon lighting created that display look. Well-placed hooks and hanging rods helped them get the most out of the space while a dazzling chandelier added some serious style.

I was so inspired to work with both the interior designer and the client to create a gorgeous and stylish walk-in closet.

What materials were used in the design? This entire master closet was designed with our Lago Adriatic Mist finish. The top-hinged doors and double doors are 5-piece Shaker with clear glass and ribbon lighting across the top of the inside of the cabinets. The drawers, island top and side panels are solid Parapan in light grey with custom acrylic knobs. There are push-to-open sliding shelves in between the drawers, used for packing.

How was the palette decided? The interior designer on this project was drawn to the grey color tones around the house, as well as elegance, simplicity and clean lines as his design aesthetic.
