WHERE: Santa Rosa, CA, in a 1940s Craftsman-style house
WHAT SHE WANTED: A “girly” closet—all her own
The color pink represents calm, compassion, thoughtfulness, and affection. As the baseline for a color palette, it paves the way for a space as nurturing as it is inviting—a soothing, comforting escape that centers the soul.
THE DESIGN CHALLENGE: A cramped space hindered Altes’s longtime dream of an open, walk-in closet—the first to call her own after years of sharing with her husband.
THE MUST-HAVE: Her love for fashion (and especially the color pink) on vivid display.
THE RESULT: A white space-enhancing room that capitalizes on vertical storage and allows her gorgeous wardrobe—and prized pinks—to pop. Customized, elongated shelving exhibits her color-coordinated shoe collection, while square nooks house handbags and hat boxes.
PLUS: A valet rod allows Altes to access and style clothes with ease.
BONUS: A crystal chandelier and delicate drawer knobs escalate the air of romance.
