It's a walk through closet, between my bedroom and the bathroom. I think the space could be utilized better and would love a better arrangement of shelves and dowels for hanging things. Also I would love to paint it. The stark white always feels a bit like a slap in the face. It could be worse of course. It could be a colour I hate. There aren't many colours I hate but one of them is a popular one right now-mint green. Mint green how I loathe thee. Mint green makes me want to run screaming. I have probably mentioned this. So, I am most thankful that my closet is not painted mint green and nor is anything else in my home.
I want to paint my closet purple. A smokey plum shade. That would make me happy and I deserve to be happy. I want to look at smokey purple walls every day.
If I google search 'smokey plum' I get a lot of eye shadow and nail polish images. This eye shadow is a beautiful colour and there is a link to the site where I found the image in case you simply must buy this eye shadow.
If this colour doesn't go into my closet it has to go somewhere. Maybe the powder room! It's quite possible that purple is my favourite colour. But choosing a favourite colour is a bit like choosing a favourite child. After all I do love blue and perhaps a nice blue would look great in my closet too, rather like the background colour of my blog.
You are dying to know what my closet looks like, right? Okay here it is.
Another idea I have is to install curtains across from ceiling to floor because covering the clothing and shoes would reduce the look of clutter. I tend to leave the door from the bedroom to the closet open all the time. The layout is rather like there is a closet within a short hallway that leads to the bathroom but the closet doesn't have doors. It's time to begin thinking of the least expensive, most attractive way to get a ceiling suspended curtain rod with a span of, I'm guessing, eight feet. Yeah, I know. I will actually measure it before I buy anything. This could look very elegant.
Ceiling mount curtain rods would be required and floor length ready made drapes. That seems quite doable. Just don't ask me if I have settled on a colour to paint the walls. In the time it took me to write this blog I have decided that smokey plum is perfect for the powder room and the closet should be something else. Deep blue or mink brown perhaps. The drapes should be velvet. Yes they should! I'm in bed, remember. I could be dreaming.
