11 Bedrooms Turned Into the Dreamiest of Dream Closets
Maybe you’ve always dreamed of a giant closet. Maybe something about seeing shoes and clothes hung up and laid out, neatly, in a space where they have room to breathe, is deeply soothing to you. Most closets are cramped, unpleasant, windowless affairs, so it’s no surprise that those who have the space to spare have often chosen to turn an under-utilized room in their home into a walk-in closet—or as I like to call it, a boudoir, a private space to retreat, to be surrounded by lovely things, and to prepare oneself to go out into the world.
Traditionally, a boudoir was a woman’s private sitting room or dressing room, leading to its current mildly scandalous association. A spare room outfitted as a closet can also serve other purposes—as a library, or study, or just a place to retreat from the cares of the world.
