Hustle seems to be the name of the game these days. There is so much to juggle that life can feel pretty chaotic at times, right? So, how does it feel to come home to an environment not much different than the outside world? It makes me feel less like I’ve entered a sanctuary and more like business as usual. I believe in the power of a well designed life. Clean, organized spaces give us a sense of well being, whether we realize it or not. And our intimate spaces, like our bathrooms and closets, really set the tone for the beginning- or ending- of our day. The Container Store‘s latest product launch, TCS Closets, is the perfect way to feel organized and at peace. Less frustration and more time- who would say no to that? I am thrilled to have partnered with the Container Stories Blog series to show you just how lovely and personalized a closet can be. This post is Part 2, showcasing three additional interior design “mood boards” to inspire you!
I took the soft Aspen finish and paired it with rich jewel tones of amethyst and malachite. This neutral is a serene backdrop and really allows deep colors to sing. I saw this possible client as a sophisticated patron of the arts. Perhaps a passionate collector who appreciates a world in vivid color. Ombré fabric layers with multiple geometric patterns and lends an artisan quality to the textural sisal floor covering. Earthy bronze leather balances the sparkle of acrylic hardware, faceted glass and polished stone. Softly woven baskets and plush, padded hangers complete the ethereal feel.
Pure white is so clean and fresh that I couldn’t help but think of an optimistic young couple with a fast-paced schedule and the world at their feet. Here I imagined futuristic sputnik lighting, hangers and hardware in bright and shiny chrome. High-tech black and grey tempers the hot yellow in a fun, graphic wallpaper and supple leather. The smooth and metallic surfaces are softened by a wool rug in a classic Greek Key pattern. The feel is sunny, high-wattage fun with modern seating and contemporary accessories.
The mid-range finish, Chestnut, is anything but mediocre. The dense and warm feel of this hue takes me to tropical destinations where earth tones, like deep moss green, rule the landscape. The color of damp earth is echoed in the bronze hardware and dark wood finish of the bench seating. And who can resist adding a few complimentary wild cards- animal prints like tiger stripe and snake skin? Tribal style baskets, natural wood hangers and woven grass trays round out the jungle experience- exotic and slow paced, you have all the time in the world…
TCS Closets offer you endless options. It just takes a commitment to better your life and a little imagination. (Okay, and maybe a bit of help from a fabulous interior designer!)
