Design Your Dream Closet
After: Neat Nooks
Starting fresh included white paint, cream rug tiles, and a new aluminum bar. Bulky shoe boxes were ditched. Now Mia’s most
used pairs stay in floor cubbies, while dressier options live in clear boxes up top (they hinge open in front). Mia used to
put on makeup while standing at her mirrored doors; a new wall-mounted vanity is a more comfortable place to primp. The white
storage ottoman, which conceals workout clothes, tucks under the vanity but blends in with Mia’s decor if left out. The room
doesn’t get much natural light, so a battery-powered spotlight mounted under the upper shelf lets Mia distinguish her black
pants from her navy ones.
