This past week, we put our master closets back in order.
Inside of the closets (including the ceiling) went Pale bud, which is characterized as an off-white with pink undertones. In our east-facing bedroom, it reads lavender-ish, which I love. It glows quietly behind the grey curtains and gives the best soft welcome in the morning.
I could not mind to have it in the entire bedroom, but Slav vetoed it as soon as he saw the color – the man wants his white. As the result, the bedroom wall will go SW’s Extra White just like the office and living room. But I negotiated to used it in the closets and I think it is pretty.
It was hard to cover the pink with clothes and hangers. Fortunately, I have a pretty slim wardrobe so I can still see the pretty walls.
It is not without challenge to make this 4′ x 2′ closet feeling airy. We are lucky that the return walls on both side are narrow, granting good access. The simple design with a single rod under a shelf works well on keeping everything in a single layer and easy to reach.
Coats, sweaters, and winter accessories on the left. I have too too many winter coats, but they are given by my parents with the fear of me being cold in a northern state. I think clothes are like an extension of parents’ arms. They are too far to protect us so they keep asking us to wear more layers. Being 6400 miles far away, I keep these pieces as an expression of their love.
A hanging organizer houses tops, shorts, and winter accessories. Pants and dressy items are kept on the right. A big check-in luggage contains the matching carry-on, my computer bag, my only handbag, and a few travel items.
This is how my closet look like now, in 2018 Spring. I probably have 100 pieces of clothing, including T shirts, pjs, and sport gear. All of them fit into this small closet, which I am very happy about. I’ve been working towards a minimal closet for a few years. Given that where I live has four seasons, I am happy with the size.
Charlie boy fell asleep while I was putting the closet together. He likes to sleep at this spot, which is quiet and cool. 🙂 If I have the curtain open he will go inside the closet to sleep, which is stinkin’ cute.
Do you have a minimalist closet? Did you Spring clean it?
