Green With Envy

Prepare to be the envy of all your friends when you give your closet a paint job inspired by this lush design. Sage walls and cane-front cabinetry set the tone for tranquility in this contemporary primary closet. The fresh green hue continues from the built-in wardrobes onto the ceiling overhead and the marble-topped island at the center of the room, yielding soothing and cohesive results akin to a luxury spa. Capture the same relaxing appeal in your closet; paint your wardrobe shelves, cabinets, walls and ceiling a cool mid-tone green and layer in finishing touches like sun-bleached baskets, ivory linen window treatments, polished nickel hardware and creamy-white marble boxes, frames or countertops.

Add Interest Overhead

Why limit wallpaper to your closet walls when you can take a page out of designer Brittany Cason Johnston’s book and use it to add interest overhead instead? Not only does this technique yield high-end results, but it’s often more cost-effective than papering four walls. Graphic cream-and-black wallpaper lines the ceiling, bringing whimsy to the custom closet design and complementing the inky cabinets and gold hardware below. Get the look in your primary closet by installing a pattern-clad paper to the ceiling in a color story that coordinates with your existing walls or cabinets.

Use the Midas Touch

Give your primary closet a glamorous facelift in a flash with the help of some new golden hardware. Unlacquered brass cabinet knobs and custom brass railings usher opulence and warmth into this classic, creamy-white closet. Four gleaming wire bins tuck neatly into built-in nooks overhead, providing open-air accessory storage and rounding out the metallics in the space.
