Look! Elegant Makeshift Closet Solution

Surely we've all known our share of closet-deprived apartments. Creative solutions for increasing storage space are always welcome, and we just love this elegant execution of a simple idea from local designer Anastasia Faiella. Check it out after the jump.

Faiella's client's loft, while blessed with gorgeously high ceilings and windows, was sorely lacking in closet and storage space. So she went looking for a part of the home where there might be space to spare, and landed on the large foyer.

By installing a curved drapery with a rail running under an overhang, Faiella and seamstress Doreen Leong (of Leong Interiors) created a closet out of an otherwise awkward empty space. The heavy gold fabric was an elegant choice, and because of its weight and texture it will do nicely for hiding the stacks of stuff behind it.

Here's another shot of the finished loft. Lovely, isn't it? To see more of Faiella's work, check out her portfolio.
