Did Carrie from Sex in the City have it right all along?!
“Don’t buy me a ring…just get me a REALLY big closet”
carries dream closet
….
I’ve been dreaming about a walk in closet big enough to fit all my clothes for a while. Instead of having my clothes scattered and stored in different parts of my condo like I do now. So I thought I would do a post about my dream closet…but a realistic version. Something attainable!

I thought if I was going to shop for my own closet…where would I go? Immediately I thought of target and Ikea. So here is my dream closet made from those two very places!

I got my colour scheme from the Rug. My favourite colours are purple and blue featured in the rug. It also gives multiple other colours to bounce off of.

I would want my purses stored high…because I don’t change up my purses as often. So I would want them stored out of the way but still on display high above eye level.

All my “unmentionables” and clothes that need to be folded away would go in this multi-drawer dresser. I would use decor suitable to the colour scheme on top the dresser; but the decor would also have to be functionable. The bowl would be used as a jewellery bowl. The clock would remind me that- I need to choose an outfit or I’m going to be late for work! haha

I would have a cushy chair to relax while I think or Instagram my outfits for the day! A round cushion stool to lay out my outfits. Or to sit down to change my shoes or put on tights! Like the Cushy stool, the teal roll-able stool would do triple duty for scarves, belts, and jewellery.

I would store my shoes to the ceiling in the dark wood storage container. They would be beautifully show cased like my dresses and shirts on the simple steel rod. I wanted the closet to feel open. Often I have clothes everywhere because I cannot find something to wear. The lived- in and relaxed feeling could easily have clothes ontop the furniture and not feel completely dirty. Compared to a closed wardrobe- with one item out of place in those closets…the whole closet feels messed.

Last but not least…the purple manikin. I would intend to use this to layout my outfits…although I doubt that would happen. haha. But none the less it would be perfect for outfit shots and pretty decor none the less!

Closet Budget
When mentally budgeting for a closet.
I thought a reasonable amount to spend on a closet would be $1,500.
The grand total for my Dream Closet?!
Drum Roll…..
$1,608.77 + Tax
Wow. Not Bad.
I mean look at everything I got:
Five pieces of furniture…storage solutions…and decor!
That is exactly why I like Ikea and Target.
Cute Items on a budget!
What do you think?
What pieces would you want in your closet?!
