Let’s face it, kids aren’t all that great at hanging things up on hangers, but they CAN handle a basic wall hook. Install a few at their level to help them wrangle dress up clothes, art smocks or jackets.
“When people are outside, the beautiful teak and the cushions become the background for people and their dressed up clothes and their food and wine,” says Linda. “I like that kind of approach to outside, because you’re also looking at landscaping and the sky. The furniture is beautiful and durable, and it works in this area of the world. You want it to always look good and really be comfortable.”
On the other side of the room, a wood dresser keeps the couple's clothes neat and organized. A flatscreen TV fills out the wall space and allows the owners to cuddle up and watch a movie before they sleep.
His and hers walk-in closets give decadent scope to the master bedroom. Her closet has shelving up to the ceiling, a dresser, tons of room for hanging clothes and a vanity in the back. A chandelier glamorously finishes off the space.
A ladder shelf creates a convenient spot for nursery necessities. Simple touches can transform plain baskets into stylish accessories to create sophisticated storage. Inexpensive fabric baskets can be dressed up with ribbon to store clothes and shoes in a child's room or nursery.
Now this is one organized closet. On the left side, the closet houses all of the homeowner's casual clothes, with all of his work/business clothes on the right. The center shelving unit also keeps his casual and work shoes separated, making it easy to decipher where each appropriate item is when he needs it. Flat walnut veneer drawer fronts dress up the off-white shelving unit and offer additional storage for underwear and other accessories. Photo courtesy of California Closets.
The maker community knows how much we love our pets, so this is a golden age for handmade dog tuxedos, dog dresses, dog bow ties and flower-ringed dog collars for your fur kid to wear to the wedding. The cuteness is blinding. Be sure you pick something your pet will actually keep on without freaking out. If your pup’s cooperative about clothing, doll her up. If your pet thinks dog clothes are for pups who’ve surrendered to their human’s silliest wishes, stick with a simple bow tie or floral collar.
Upon entry to the multipurpose room, the boys are greeted by a grassy-green dresser (picked up at a flea market, sanded and repainted) which holds their day-to-day school, playground and gym clothes. Although it may seem insignificant at first, proper placement of storage furniture can have a huge impact on keeping a kid's room neat and tidy.
