Here’s a random piece of big news: we recently bought a townhouse! My first home purchase! Closing was literally one week ago, and I kept the process mostly under wraps because I didn’t want to jinx anything. Only when I got the keys to our little casa did I finally relax a bit.
So I’m currently in nesting mode. Andrew has given me his blessing to decorate as I see fit. Fortunately, we have similar taste. (But c’mon, did he really expect to be the one calling the final design shots?). Alas, it’s gonna take a couple of months for the rest of our furniture to arrive. In the meantime, I bet you’re curious to see what my new closet looks like. Well, this is my down-to-earth version of celebrities’ mega closets profiled in InStyle (Mariah Carey’s wardrobe wonderland is especially jaw-dropping).
Here’s the view of the master bedroom and the short corridor that leads to the small bathroom:
One closet holds my accessories, shoes, tops, jeans and lightweight skirts:
You know, I should be giddy at the prospect of having lots of room to expand my wardrobe, but these days—and I cannot believe I’m admitting this—I’m more preoccupied with buying a new washer and dryer!
P.S. Lest you think than Andrew’s clothes got relegated to a dungeon to accommodate all my stuff, fear not. He has the whole guest bedroom to work with (e.g. shoe rack, dresser and a double-wide closet fitted with Elfa shelving). That’s a fair deal, right?
