Just a preface that this is NOT my closet…but I certainly wish it was. I spent most of last week in New York for a family member's wedding and spent a night at my friend Beth's apartment in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. When I walked into her closet/dressing room, it was like magical universe of color and pattern.
While the former tenant used this room as a dining room, Beth turned it into a walk-in closet with rolling racks making her daily wares available at her visual disposal. Beth was the one who convinced me to start a blog back in 2005 so I can thank her for all the adventures and friendships I've made along the way through this site. And, I will also continue to fantasize about that colorful adventure of a closet of hers.
Wow! I love all the color in Beth’s wardrobe and the touch of whimsy in the decor! Thanks for sharing this fabulous piece of inspiration! xo
Awww I love these photos, so inspiring to live a life filled with beautiful pattern and design.
too beautiful 🙂
So beautiful! I have that Oeuf Hand Crocheted Butterfly frame on my “to buy” list! Thanks for sharing!
I love it! So full of color. I love how its organized but cluttered at the same time! Wish it was mine!

I love it! The shoes! The colour! I am a black, white, grey and navy girl myself!
oh goodness, i would kill for a closet full of clothes like that! gorgeous!
just cleaned out my closet of old things…which was a very zen-like experience.
NOW, I must prolong the good feeling by refreshing my closet with new things. this is the best closet I’ve ever seen & I wonder where she’s bought all of her shoes??
do you even know how i love this post? i started reading you way back when your posts were “10 reasons why i love beth” and “10 reason why i love bob.”
isn’t that funny? xoxo.
this is so inspiring. i’m definitely going to do some rearranging to my closet + bedroom this week.
Serious closet lust.
I love how everything is so out in the open and on display! Getting dressed must be a breeze.
Could you post pictures of your friend Beth? I’d loved to see her in some of her favorite outfits. Thanks so much for sharing. That closet is completely swoon worthy. I’m also thankful that she encouraged you to start this blog!
love this closet
I am so inspired to go home and work on my closet now!
Great closet indeed! Such fun bright pieces!
OMG!! I want this closet! Your photos are amazing, I just fell in love!
im soo loving that first pic! 🙂
wow. her closet looks like a boutique! so many cute clothes!!
amazing closet and truly beautiful shoe collection! inspiration to building a solid fashion foundation
ohmygosh, those SHOES!! love!
Very impressed that none of the clothes in her fabulous closet still have tags on them.
I didn’t think “real people” actually had closets like that. I’m so jealous! 🙂
thanks for all of the sweet comments everyone!
oh wow, i wish that was MY closet! =]
I’ve been thinking about posting a clothing inspiration board in my closet too. I love the stripe version Beth has!
I have that Kate Spade add campaign hanging in my closet too. This is precious.
This is gorgeous! Giving me some ideas for my next home!!!
that *is* a magical closet! she seems like a fun woman!
Looks like a lot of the shoes are from J.Crew, good taste 🙂
Do you know how she did the black and white bulletin board? Id love to have something like that to display all my fashion inspiration pics!! thanks 🙂
Wow. I was dreaming about a closet that looked just like this last night. Mine definitely looks nothing like it! It’s winter here so I’m dreaming of floaty, colourful summer dresses.
Beth found striped paper and used spray mount to attached it to the back of her dresser. She suggests buying extra paper since the paper doesnt last as long as a real bulletin board.
She has wonderful style. Fabulous shoe collection! Lucky girl.
oh wow! If I was a bandit, hers would be the closet I’d raid!
that’s it! i’m throwing out everything in my pitiful closet and starting over. this closet is a stylist’s DREAM.
im re-doing my whole closet this weekend! i’ll send you after pics
have fun in vegas
