My Closet Room Reveal

My Closet Room Reveal

I’ve been meaning to do an updated closet room tour since moving to our new home, and also because my closet room is always a hot topic and one that is highly requested by my lovely readers on StyleScoop. We’ve been in Jozi for two years now, so it’s about dang time! This weekend, after giving my vanity table a fresh coat of paint, I thought now is the perfect time to invite you into a little visual tour of my second JHB Closet. The first one was just okay. I had set it up in the spare bedroom (benefits of not having kids haha), but I didn’t love it. It was dark and the walls were a bland and boring yellow paint (which we couldn’t re-fresh), but this one, man oh man, it’s perfect. Bright white walls,  high beam exposed ceilings and so much friggin natural light! The set up is very similar to my previous one from our Durban home, it’s just bigger and a lot better. I used most of the fittings from my old setup from the very first closet room, and since I have more space in this room, I could add an extra book shelf slash shoe…

Step Into My Closet

Step Into My Closet

A lot of you have been asking for an “updated” version of my closet room, and I’ve been promising one for ages! Well kids, today is the day…. So why don’t you step inside my updated closet room… To give you the really quick version; we turned one of the spare bedrooms in our house into a closet room. My old setup (from nearly three years ago) became a little too cluttered for my liking. I have since changed it to make everything still accessible, but much neater and prettier. I’ve also slowly added bits and pieces, like my fluffy white carpet, dresser stool and my chandelier (which unfortunately isn’t visible in any of my pics – grrr!) Ok, so on the one side of the wall (opposite the window), I have my dresser and shoe shelf. Both of these were old pieces of furniture that I just revamped by painting them white. If you’re looking for THE BEST white wood paint, I highly recommend Dulux Pearl Glo. Make sure you give it a coat of primer first! My dresser, or vanity table – which ever you prefer is quite a nifty setup. There is quite a lot to show and…

DIY Post – How to Make Your Own Closet Room

DIY Post – How to Make Your Own Closet Room

After posting my Closet Room the other day I got so many requests from you guys asking where I got the wardrobes and how to set them up etc.  Believe it or not these babies came from Mr Price Home and at only R899 a piece. I’ve got four of them that we joined together to create my Closet Room. Here’s how you can get your own… CLOSET IN A BOX Each one of the wardrobes come in a box that you assemble yourself. It’s fairly easy to get the wardrobe up yourself, but its great if you have some help. I’m glad my hubby helped me put my wardrobes up as he came up with the idea to join the two together, making them look like a single unit. You can place the shelves wherever you want, they don’t have to be exactly as the instruction. You will however need a bottom shelf for support and one fairly close to the top to keep it supported throughout. The only thing you wont be able to to do, is if you’re going to join the wardrobes you wont be able to have all the shelves aligned in the same position.…

The Fearless Fashionista’s Fragrance Display

So where do you keep your fragrances? I like to store mine in the most unlikely places in my closet room… under my hats, next to my books, with hand bags, with shoes and where ever else  a fragrance would not normally be…

Oh closet where art thou!?

Oh closet where art thou!?

I can only dream of having a mammoth walk in closet, with endless rows of designer clothes and a sea of red soles. Just so I have a frame of reference for when this actually happens, I took a peek into some of our favourite celebrities’ closets. Khloe Kardashian Odom, has a love affair with Christian Louboutin (and so do we all). Her shoe collection is enviable – it’s colour co-ordinated, and this girl is all leopard print and bling! Rock-glam queen Fergie’s walk in closest is also organised by category and colour, and hubbie Josh Duhamel nick-named it ‘Fergieland’. Josh has his own closet of course. Eva Longoria’s closet over a hundred square foot, but it’s not all designer. Eva insists she dresses for comfort – she has over fifty pairs of jeans, and more than one pair of Uggs. Nicky Hilton’s shoe collection is off limits to family and friends, since well, she has rather large feet (size ten and a half!). She organises her clothes by designer, and since the fashion heiress is bffs with most designers, they often invite her into their showrooms to take whatever she likes *sigh*.   And leave it to the diva…

Shop Your Closet…

Shop Your Closet…

Imagine having a room just for your clothes. A whole room dedicated to everything you love, out fabulously on display just like a boutique. Like most of you (I’m sure), we don’t all have a dreamy walk in closet leading off our main bedroom between our bathroom ala Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and The City). But, what some are able to do is convert a room into a closet, after all, when you really think about it, how many times does your “guest” bedroom really get used? The first time I had heard of closet rooms was from StyleScoop’s own Fearless Fashionista, Jasna. It’s been something I’ve wanted for ages, and now its finally happening! If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’m working on my very own, very first and very exciting closet room. We’ve just bought a new house and with four bedrooms and two people, I’ve been given the freedom and green light from my hubby to “go wild” in one of the rooms – yay!!!! It was actually his suggestion – I know, I’ve trained him well haven’t I? So, stay tuned, I’ll be posting my closet room just as soon as I’ve managed to…

The Fearless Fashionista’s Closet Room Make over Part 3 Or

The Fearless Fashionista’s Closet Room Make over Part 3 Or

So here is part 3 and the last post on my closet room make over. – Jasna This is the other side of my the room where I have situated my desk and my clothing rail. I painted the desk white  and added a few personal touches to it. I love my green mouse pad and my pink mouse. I decided to move the clothing rail away from the window and put it behind the door. I hung some of my bags on the door along with my DFC cap.   I put my tripod next to the window so that I can take pics when my photographer is not around and hung more bags on the mirror stand. I put some of my shoes on top or along side my fashion books to add a quirky touch.     Some of my bags and shoes on the white shelves. There are 1 or 2 final items I must still find and then my closet room/studio/office room will be complete.

Messy bed, messy head!

Messy bed, messy head!

New Years Day, Ramadaan and Spring. These are just some of the events that mark the start of a new beginning. Sometimes work and life get’s the better of us and we find ourselves in need of a change mid-year. This is good, in fact I encourage it.

Inside the Fearless Fashionista’s closet…

Inside the Fearless Fashionista’s closet…

I get a lot of emails and enquiries about my clothes, accessories, my famous handbag collection and my Closet Room. So, I thought I would give you a sneak peek, share some pictures and give you a bit of info into my fashion closet. I am very lucky that we have as a spare room where I can do this, so I take full advantage of it! I love the boutique layout and design that my closet room has and I feel that displaying items instead of storing them away makes it so much easier when deciding on something to wear every day. I inherited a lot of clothes and accessories from my grandmother, who was a huge collector of all things beautiful and I like to display them. Yes, believe it or not, but I wear almost all the pairs of shoes that you see in the second picture, whether it’s at work, functions, over the weekend or at home. I love all the new trends for summer and even next winter, so expect my shoe shoe collection to get much bigger over the next couple of months! I find using a clothes rail to hang some of the…
