What girl doesn’t dream of the perfect closet? Actually, up until recently, I hadn’t thought much about dream closets, and most of my closet thoughts happen when I walk into mine and see that I can never keep things on the hangers. I have this blanket tub in the corner of my closet, and every time I have what-to-wear moments of trying multiple things on, I end up laying what I don’t wear on said tub instead of hanging them back up. Why do I continue to do this? I don’t know. But what I do know now, is that after the last several days of looking at closets online, I can say I am finally having thoughts of My Dream Closet.
There is this site called Compass, a real estate platform based in New York with unlimited resources for finding your perfect space, and they recently got me thinking about what my dream closet would look like. What a question, and surprisingly one I hadn’t really thought about. Probably every Pinterest pinner but me has a board with their perfect dream closet! Well, now it is my turn. It didn’t take long, and now I have visions of never-ending space for all of my dresses – present and future – an abundance of shoe storage, and freshly cut flowers as the centerpiece to my imaginary, dream closet.
My number one closet must have, shelves – lots and lots of shelves. I can never seem to have enough shelf space in my current closet, so my dream closet would have an unlimited amount of these. Of course, now I would have to make sure I had enough sweaters and shoes to fill all of these shelves. A dream closet seems to be the perfect excuse to do more shopping, doesn’t it?
Next, perfect lighting with dressing room style mirrors, and a stand out center light fixture. Every closet should have these, don’t you think?
Then, there would be space. Wide open space so when I am having trouble deciding on what to wear (which I might considering all of the clothes that would be filling my overly abundant, imaginary wardrobe), that little corner pile of clothes that didn’t work out, would look like only a couple of things considering how big the closet is overall.
And lastly, the freshly cut flowers. All dream closets need these, and they should be replaced daily, because, why not.
