Julania Hubbard loves clothes--so much so that they have pretty much taken over her bedroom. She dreams of one day becoming a fashion designer and even keeps a large mesh bag full of clothes that she wants to alter or use for design ideas. The room is currently divided into three main areas: the closet, bed and desk, all of which are disorderly and full of clutter. Her space needs a serious makeover, especially since she works from home.
Organizer Vicki Norris steps in to help clear away the clutter and make the bedroom functional again. She explains that the first order of business is to sort through all of the items in the room, group like items together and label each box. They begin with the large collection of purses that are housed in the small closet. Once that's complete--days later--Norris shares her ideas for getting Hubbard's bedroom in working order.
The closet in Hubbard's bedroom is very small, so she uses a rack on another wall for storing her clothes.
She plans to open up the closet area by installing a custom-built system that makes use of the vertical space. Hooks are set in place to hold the handbags, and a shoe bar replaces the mountain of shoeboxes that once towered over the room. The decor needs to be softer, so new linens and wall paint is on the to-do list. Other changes include a taller entertainment-center unit for more storage space as well as placing an additional desk in the room. Let's see how it all turned out:
The entertainment center is a mess of cords and clutter, and she needs more hanging space in the area that houses her clothes.
A custom-built closet has been installed within her current space. It makes smart use of the vertical space and has sections for all of her things. (see image at top)
The bed zone has stark white walls that sharply contrast with the brightly colored bed, and space on each side of the bed is underutilized.
The plain white walls are now painted a warm gold color, and the bed is brought to life with a faux headboard and window treatments.
Her desk (and the floor surrounding it) serve as a dumping ground. Norris wants to make room for a workspace as well as paper-processing area.
A new desk has been placed on the wall where the bed was. Papers are now organized and filed into labeled sections. The second desk serves as a design area.
Julania Hubbard's new bedroom is now organized with its own stylish flair. She can see all of it from her bed and says that gaining the space makes her feel more creative.
