After you've finished de-wrinkling shirts, you need a temporary place to hang them within reach of the ironing board. A hook like this one from Spectrum Diversified Designs holds 12 hangers — plus it stores vertically.
This customized closet was designed by Mosaik Design & Remodeling of Portland, Ore., to meet the needs of a couple that travels frequently. The his-and-hers islands with tops made of Calacatta marble are just the right height for packing and include benches for comfort and ease when putting on shoes. The shoe shelves were custom designed specifically for his (yes, his) large shoe collection, and the velvet-lined drawers in her island hold an enviable collection of sunglasses. A built-in ironing board and toiletry organizers are hidden behind the soft white traditional cabinetry.
