Flowers by nature present an organic approach to color, form, and light. Translated to design, florals and their native environment dictate an instinctive ebb and flow—a space in which to exist comfortably, easily, and naturally.

    THE DESIGN CHALLENGE: A prominently angled wall and three windows offered the master bedroom closet beautiful architecture, but tricky navigation.

    THE MUST-HAVE: A sophisticated space that could be comfortably shared by Bond and her husband.

    THE RESULT: A visually striking closet that turned its architectural challenges into advantages by making the windows the focal point. Hanging clothes, accessories, and shoes are not only easily accessible, but bathed in natural light. Outside the windows, Bond’s garden view remains unobstructed.

    PLUS: Thoughtful use of surface area allows for pretty floral accents throughout.

    BONUS: A pull-out mirror, valet rod, and hidden laundry baskets improve practicality.
