sneak peek... clothes room

When my man and I were house-hunting we had certain criteria of what we wanted such as 3+ bedrooms, 2+ bathrooms, a garage (which we unfortunately didn't get, I curse you snow shoveling!), sufficient outdoor space and staying in West Wellington Village.  Being a hoarder collector of clothes, shoes, accessories, and anything to do with my wardrobe, one of my biggest priorities was a large closet.  The house we ended up buying has a wall to wall closet in our master bedroom but I always dreamed of walking into a closet that felt like a clothing boutique.  And that's how my clothes room was born.  My man spent countless hours installing closet track systems in the small attic bedroom and slowly but surely the space has started to evolve.  It isn't quite complete, I want it to be perfect before I show it off to the blogosphere but here is a sneak peek of some of the highlights.

Do you have a special space for your wardrobe?

  12. Now I'm sad. I thought I had a big closet 5' x 10'. I have so much blogger envy right now!!!
    You should start a new blog called Emily's closet!!!
    I can't wait to see the finished room. The the chore is to keep it tidy! Maybe we should make you post a picture a month so we can keep an eye on you!!!!

  13. Droooool. I want this. I want this so much! I sort of have a clothes room too but it's not anything like this! You have given me ideas though!

  14. Wow! Your clothes room is fabulous!!! I'm so jealous!

  15. Oh. My. Gosh. Can I come live in your clothes room? It's beautiful!

  16. That is a seriously impressive closet! I can see many clothing montages going on in here! I just got back from 15 months of travelling so all my clothes are in poorly organized boxes and it's making me crazy!

  17. A clothes room, how awesome! It looks like a fancy boutique too, I love how you stored everything!

  18. oh, can't wait to see the whole thing
    this just looks fabulous
    my special place for clothes??? usually on the floor LOL

  19. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ENVIOUS of your closet, Emily! I totally want to have a bigger "collection" of clothing but we just don't have the space right now. One day, though! Also, your man is AWESOME for installing all the fixtures for you. What a keeper!

  21. It looks pretty organised, that's some kind of necklace collection! I also use hat boxes, and have a garment rack for coats that we put in the extra closet.

  22. Whoa! I'm jealous of how amazingly organized you are. I love those hats!

  23. I want a closet that is like a little boutique too. So I'm very jealous of you right now. I am seriously lacking in closet space. I can't want to see your final results.
