Closets and Nooks - Roomspiration Continues

Today Roomspiration continues over at The Blooming Hydrangea with closets and nooks.  I love an organized closet.   I find that when everything has a place and there is a place for everything - all is good and calm in my world.  I love looking at organized closets and getting inspiration from them.

Once a year the Container Store holds their Elfa sale.   Each year I wait for the sale so that I can try to organize another closet.  Last year I organized the walk-in closet outside of my bedroom, affectionately known as my shoe closet.  It had been someone of a disaster prior to this (sorry, no before photo).  All of the closets came with basic organizers when we purchased our home.  This closet had one bar that went around the perimeter.  Not very functional at all.
After removing the old organizers and patching the walls, the first thing I did was paint my closet a color.  This is such an easy thing to do, but it makes a huge impact.  I used the left over paint from the ceiling in my master bedroom...a Robin's Egg blue.
The Elfa system is really easy to install.  I am always so impressed with the customer service at the Container Store.  Honestly, I've never met such nice, helpful people.  Everything is cut to size and they send you home with instructions.  The closet system takes less than an hour to install (not counting the prep and painting).

This new closet design uses every inch of this closet, and actually makes the closet look bigger than ever.

Here are some more closet inspiration photos:

This closet is painted, which I love.  Also, this closet uses drapes instead of doors.  What a fun option.    I love the use of drawers in this closet.

I am loving the color combination in this closet.

I love looking at closets. I live in a house built in 1933, the closet are teeny, tiny so these photos are like dream photos for me!

I love an organized closet, Judy! Whether it's linens or clothes. We have a great system in the new place for the master bedroom. We just need to utilize it in the best way possible. Still working on that!

Ugh...these photos make me feel even more aware of how badly our closet needs a makeover! LOL! Yours looks absolutely fantastic and I love the hanging boots. That is how you are supposed to take care of them instead of piling them on the floor like I do, right? :-)

Nothing beats a well organized closet no matter how limited the space is. I have seen some inspiring closet designs here and I'm glad I did. Closets definitely help greatly in making the living space better.
