Last week we shared how to refresh your closet here. Now that your closet is organized, here comes the fun part…styling your closet like a chic boutique. Here are twelve ways to create a boutique closet:
#1 If there’s room, hang a full-length mirror on a wall in your closet or on the door.
#2 Place a chair or stool in your closet. I love my swivel stool from Home Goods.
#3 If you have natural light or a window in your closet, think about adding wallpaper. FYI…wallpaper on the ceiling adds a luxe accent.
#4 If you have space, move an armoire or chest of drawers into your closet.
#5 Repurpose a china cabinet…they are great for displaying shoes, handbags, sweaters, etc.
#6 Go antiquing…I love my 1940’s retro armoire for storing and displaying jewelry, handbags, etc. ….purchased at the Montgomery Street Antique Mall.
#7 Be creative in displaying jewelry by using items around the house, such as…a candy dish, a cake stand, small bowls, and trays….and even teacups.
#8 For color and texture, add a rug or piece of art.
#9 Add some hooks or a valet to display your favorite coat, hat, scarf, or handbag.
#10 Definitely matching hangers to give your closet a cohesive look and can be space-saving.
#11 For a party vibe…bring a bar cart or party tray into the closet. They are great for storing makeup, handbags, hats, jewelry, etc. And even a bottle of tequila!
#12 Top off your closet boutique style with a chandelier or a unique ceiling fixture. If you have space, add a lamp for ambiance.
For more ideas and inspiration, browse our Pinterest board to view all the beautiful boutique closets we’ve featured. Once your closet is styled, grab your bar cart or a party tray and invite friends over for a closet reveal party….after your two Covid vaccines, of course! Be sure to take before and after photos of your closet, tag @HolleymWilliams, and @homewithatwist, then congratulate yourself on a rewarding and refreshing project!
