2nd bedroom = Dressing Room

So far in the second bedroom, I have the walls painted a beautiful gray and I have purchased an awesome curtain for the existing closet.

Today, I’m going to finish painting the window, door, and closet door trim white and start dreaming of storage for outside the closet. Since both existing closets are overflowing and I already have an extra clothes rack and two dressers at capacity, I think some open shelving or storage is necessary.

But first, inspiration pictures!

I love the idea of the dressers in the middle of the room.

via  At Home with Kim Vallee I like how the white makes everything look crisp, clean and organized, don’t you?

via Kim Vallee again – this closet is from IKEA. I used to work at IKEA and lust over these dream closets.

The wall on which I am planning to install the unit is  9ft, 7 inches wide and 8ft tall. I just need to see how many clothes I have for long hang, mid-hang and folded shelving and then I’ll be designing away. Look for my preliminary sketches soon!


Living Room Wall

Our living room’s measurements are 9 1/2 ft by 18 ft and we have one very large wall in our living room behind the 3 seater couch. We are still undecided as to what we should put on that wall.

Some inspiration photos should help….
