Jazz up your closet with these celebrity-inspired design ideas. Our designers explain how you can create a star-worthy look in your own custom walk-in.
When it comes to custom walk-ins, there are closets and then there are CLOSETS. We’ve created plenty of amazing designs in the greater D.C. area, but if I had to pick a city with truly impressive storage spaces, I’d go with Vienna.
You might not be living quite as large as Daniel D’Aniello, Vienna’s wealthiest resident, but if you reside in one of the city’s many elegant homes and are looking for design ideas that will make your custom closet equally breathtaking, consider taking a page from these celebrity closets that combine personalized function with beautiful form.
Display Your Shoes Like Mariah Carey
If there’s one thing every celebrity closet has, it’s shoe racks—lots of them. After all, you’ve got to have ample space for your collection.
But if you want to go beyond storage and create a shoe display, follow Mariah Carey’s example. She keeps her shoes (over 1000 pairs!) arranged by color and material and displays them with custom lighting that beautifully accentuates her collection. We can design several rows of adjustable shoe racks for your walk-in so that your own collection can be just as organized, allowing you to display heels, flats, and boots with equal ease.
Blake Lively Takes Center Islands to the Next Level
A center island is a staple feature for most luxury walk-ins, but “staple” doesn’t have to mean “boring.” Blake Lively’s closet, for example, has a center island with a beautiful marble top and space beneath to store her jewelry. If you want a similar look, we can install both single and double-level jewelry drawers, lined in black velvet, for your favorite earrings and necklaces.
Finishing Touches from Ralph Lauren
Finally, for an example of the impact little details can have on your custom walk-in, take a look at Ralph Lauren’s closet. Lauren uses a classic, dark wood finish to create a sophisticated look, with perfectly placed accent lighting to ensure every item is well-displayed and easy to find. Lauren can check his look before he leaves by using one of the many mirrors strategically placed around his closet.
If you want a classic feel like Lauren’s, we’d suggest closet cabinetry that features one of our dark, warm finishes, like Sunset or Port—or, for a really sleek look, go with a deep Chocolate. We can also install a pull-out mirror, these not only help you ensure every detail of your outfit is perfect, they can make your closet feel more spacious.
