In My Closet

 In the Closet of Crazy Style Love

 

 

Yesterday, I had the honor of being featured on The Vault Files for the feature “In My Closet“.  I’d like to give a huge thank you to Gaby for asking me to participate.  The series inspired me to showcase a few photos from in my closet.

 

The furniture and decor of my current closet are definitely not my ideal, however the space is fantastic.  It’s supposed to be a den, but because I was living on my own at the time, it made for the perfect closet space.  I’m renting my condo so I couldn’t buy any fixtures that had to be attached to the walls.  Plus, since I was renting, I didn’t want to invest in furniture that I would probably replace once I finally moved into my own space.  I purchased the cabinets at Home Depot for an incredible price, the shoe racks are from Linens N Things, storage boxes from Ikea, and the shelves under the shoe racks are from Target.  All in all, a great closet on a major budget.

 

I really can’t wait until Justin and I finally buy our own condo or house, probably in the next year or two.  Real estate in Toronto is insanely expensive so renting is the perfect option for us right now.  I’m so excited to decorate my living space the way I’ve always dreamed of, and also to buy furniture that’s not ‘disposable’.  In the mean time, I can live vicariously through Pinterest and my Inspiring Interiors board.  So much beautiful inspiration.

    Your closet space is gorgeous! We have an extra bedroom that I would love to turn into a walk in closet but my hubby and son insist that it should turn into a game room. For the sake of the family, my clothes will suffer 🙂

    You’d never know your closet was organized on a budget because it looks super fancy! I love that you had an extra space to convert into a closet. I wish I had the same luxury! And dang girl, you have a lot of clothes! I’d love to go shopping in there!

    um so your closet puts mine to shame (although we have very limited closet space) but seriously I think YOU should be torontoShopoholic lol.

    Seriously though, I need to invest in the velvet hangers because they make everything look so organized…

    I think you did a great job decorating your closet for the “now.” It reminds me of working at the mall. Displays, shoe racks, tables full of folded sweaters. My closet is tiny and jam packed with so much stuff! I’ve been thinking of turning our spare room into a family closet to store everyone’s out of season clothes and make out bedrooms a little lighter. Or maybe even just make it everyone’s full-time closet to free up our bedroom space totally.

    I have an extra room for my closet too! But it is totally not as organized as yours. It probably could be, but I’m just messy. Kudos to you, and thanks for giving us a peek!

    Ah, I would die over a whole other room as my closet. You are living the dream, Jenny! I think you’ve done a great job organizing even though you couldn’t drill into the walls.

    I am insanely jealous of your closet! I used to have a guest bedroom as my closet, but then we moved and needed the guest bedroom for actual guests!! I now have my things housed in 3 different closets in 3 different rooms, which makes for a difficult time getting dressed some days. I hope to have a really fabulous close some day. Loved seeing your closet!

    OMG your closet is awesome! So lucky you had the extra den space to use as a walk in. Some day I hope to have enough bedrooms in my house that I can use one as a closet 🙂

    Yes T.O is crazy for prices, I lived in The Beach, but now in Oakville, the commute is crazy, but that’s the price you pay.
