Closet Envy by Sarah Alexandra
There was a time when closets were merely a place to store your clothing and accessories. A bedroom closet served a simple purpose and allowed you to keep your belongings out of sight. A closed door also allowed a bit more discretion for the, shall we say, organizationally challenged. That was then and now a days bedroom closets have become as important to many as any other room in the house. Closets have become a place to artfully display clothing, shoes and accessories with great planning and attention to detail put into their creation.
The modern dream closet has transformed into a space where one can not only get dressed, but actually spend time relaxing. They look more like modern galleries, where fashions are displayed as they would be in any upscale boutique found around the world. Where shoes used to be kept in boxes, possibly with a Polaroid on the front for easy access, they are now arranged for viewers to admire. Handbags are coordinated by color, style, shape and size creating an enviable array surely to please the most discerning fashionista. Some have even gone to great length, sparing no expense, to create an intimate salon-like environment where secrets are shared and memories created. We have put together some of our favorite closets that truly make us swoon. We love to dream about the closet we would design. Of course Sarah Alexandra shirts would be prominently featured!
Aerin Lauder radiates beauty, strength and sophistication. The granddaughter of cosmetics legend, Estee Lauder, has been on every best dressed list and created her own eponymous lifestyle brand. It should come as no surprise that her closet represents the same timeless elegance and luxury that she does. We adore the chandelier and hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper.
The mix of modern and traditional decor in this closet blends together seamlessly. We love the antique chandelier, soft blue of the walls and graphic carpet.
Cindy Crawford made her name strutting down the runway wearing the most glamorous fashions in the world. However her closet represents her genuine “All-American” spirit. We can practically feel the Malibu breeze coming through the windows. This is the perfect setting for a mother-daughter moment.
These beautiful pieces with glass tops, pull out drawers and lucite trays are a perfect solution for organizing and storing clothing and accessories.
The custom island made of rosewood and leather are the focal point of this modern closet. The light wood floor and hand blown glass light fixture tie it all together. We would love to sip a glass of bubbly while getting ready for a night out on the town!
Designer Monique Lhuillier’s closet is the perfect environment to showcase her beautiful designs. The cool gray tones play off the luxe feel of the cascading chandelier and over the top stools.
With this many gorgeous shoes, it’s almost a crime to keep them hidden behind a closed door! So many red soles we can hardly control ourselves!
We love the way Khloe Kardashian houses her impressive shoe collection. She even has a separate section for athletic shoes. Now that’s commitment!
