Since our move into a Mid-Century home 3 years ago, we've undergone just one major renovation: our kitchen and dining room. Now it's time to begin working on a few other areas that need updating, spaces like closets, bathrooms and guest rooms. I recently tackled our children's closets. Original to the home's 1953 construction, the closets for both bedrooms were not making use of all the available space nor accommodating all the current things kids own nowadays. Striving to keep some uniformity throughout the house, I hired the cabinet maker who worked on our kitchen to build something similar for our children's rooms. The final result is a refined storage area that fits our home's design and addresses the needs of our children now and well into the future. Take a look:
Anthropologie's brass and leather knobs add a bit of masculinity to the boys' room and coordinate with other brassy fixtures throughout the house.
By removing the paneled doors in each room, we gained more usable space both inside and outside the closets. The larger cubbies are outfitted with adjustable shelves for toys and rods to hang clothes as needed.
Zoe's dresser hardware ties into the greenish hues of the concrete floor and adds an elegant earthiness to her room.
For the first time in almost 10 years our twin boys have their own dressers and display shelves! As for Zoe, she now has plenty of room for her ever growing collection of stuffies and...shoes.
