I suppose I could kind of say that I have a walk-in wardrobe. Well you can at least walk in to it. Not very far mind as it’s very skinny. In fact I’d say I had more storage space in my old flat pack wardrobe.
Around the tinternet, and more specifically on Pinterest there are hundreds of walk-in closets. Some of them are gigantic (yes Mariah we are looking at you here) others more modest.
The whole dressing room/spare bedroom thing is very popular at the moment too isn’t it? In my old spare room I had wire shelves, poles and drawers fixed across the wall to house all my clothes, with a three-quarter bed across the other. My friends and family never seemed to mind that they were sleeping amongst the contents of H&M. When Big transformed a bedroom into Carrie’s closet I don’t think I was the only one who was concerned about how they would squeeze in an Ikea sofa bed for unexpected overnight guest.
Practicalities aside, what would your dream wardrobe look like? I’d take inspiration from the wardrobe of JC Crew Director, Jenna Lyons, and centre it around some awesome architectural feature such as a huge fireplace. Obviously there would be a huge chandelier hung from the ceiling to illuminate the racks and rails of shoes. I would have some form of upholstered pouffe or chaise to recline on when picking out my outfit for the day. Custom built cubbies would house shoes and other accessories and there would be a huge ornate mirror. Dreamy. All clothes hanging in my dream walk-in wardrobe would fit perfectly, would not be susceptible to ‘bobbling’ and would rarely require ironing of any form. I also love the images I’ve seen of peeps having a massive claw foot tub in their dressing room, but is this practical? Would your favourite jumper become a victim to mildew?
What would your ideal wardrobe look like? How are you storing your clothes at the moment and what changes would you make to turn your closet into a dream walk-in? You are hereby granted permission to be as extravagant and ostentatious as you like…
