"Some people dream of having a big swimming pool... with me, it's closets." -Audrey Hepburn
I confess: I'm passionate about closets. Well-designed, efficient, and therefore, beautiful closets. Organized closets. A place for everything and everything in its place closets. Closets with seemingly miles of hanging space. Closets with shelves and baskets and drawers... oh my! Closets with slanted shelves for shoes, and cubbies to stack sweaters and sweats neatly. Closets with a granite or custom cement topped island. Closets in haberdashery-style cherry or mahogany veneer with wood framed seeded glass doors, fluted and crown molding, and rosettes. Simple but elegant closets in modern, crisp, white melamine. (Are you getting a visual here? Have you started salivating yet?) Or, my personal fantasy, for my someday dream home here in Asheville NC, contemporary maple "Pure Bond" veneer cabinetry with frosted glass drawer and door fronts framed in brushed aluminum, and a hand-blown Chihuly-style or custom sea glass chandelier illuminating it all. I'm passionate about the space you use several times a day. The space that can even set the tone for your day! I'm excited about sharing my passion with you, which is what this blog is all about. Enjoy!
