in the closets



so yesterday after my messy truth post I went looking for some closet inspiration.
Here is what I found: 

First I found this California Closet pic. I think I actually have an add with this pantry cut out of a magazine and glued into my "inspiration" notebook.

I also found this picture which is the other side of the pantry.
I just love how fresh and happy this kitchen seems.

This is another California Closet picture. While I love the craft storate and all the colors, I just cannot see keeping my craft supplies and wrapping paper in my kitchen.
Somehow I imagine that all my gifts would leave my house with spaghettis sauce and little bits of bannana stuck to them. Eww gross.

This is the closet of my dreams. Except of course the clothes would be all over the floor as well.
And I would have a bench in the middle for sitting on.
I am pretty sure if I had a closet like this, I would hide in it daily with a good book and a box of chocolates.


I am also a big fan of turning not so great closests into other useful spaces.
Love these nooks in a kids room that I found over at Ohdeeoh

Speaking of kids rooms, I know this is a garage but I am drawing lots of inspration from this for the boys room re-do next year.
They have reached the stage of play where it is all about Lego's, Army Men Battles and Making Things. Something like this just seems perfect don't you think?

  1. I'm having an aversion to these photos!! There is something about seeing gift wrap stations makes me cringe. I don't know what it is, but they just make me feel so unorganized and slacker-ish...

    I do, however, appreciate your confessions post, it made me smile & makes me feel sooo super duper normal & sane. Thank you!
