My Closet Reveal

brighton keller new home closet reveal

I am SO excited to finally get to share my closet reveal with y’all! As most of you might already know, I recently moved into my first home back in January. And ever since then, I’ve been working hard (in between travels…) to try and make this house a home and get settled in.

I made a few adjustments to customize my closet (and I’ll share more on that later), but I’m so excited to finally say that it’s COMPLETE and that everything has its very own home. Aka everything has a place, which was quite a struggle to be honest.

But I’ll admit, I didn’t do it all myself. I had help from my friend Margaret Brown from Neat Method. Y’all, she is AMAZING and seriously is the only reason my closet looks this pretty. I wish she could come over once a month and make it look this good always!!

This photo makes me happy! I doubt it will stay this pretty, but I’m going to enjoy it for the moment. We wanted my closet to feel like a customized boutique that inspired outfit-creation. So naturally, I wanted everything on display and a place for fresh flowers! I’m thinking I might also add some storage or displays of my makeup too for lipstick and maybe even my sunglasses once I find the proper solution. But whatever the case, I love the boutique feel of it and hope it stays this pretty and clean!

Can you tell I’m just a LITTLE bit excited?! I’ve always dreamed of having a closet where I could put ALL my things in one place. And after much work, saving and organizing, I’m SO excited and thrilled with the finished product. The shelves under my feet here were actually an accident (lol). The guys that helped me build my shoe shelves didn’t really speak much English and I actually wanted to keep this section below where I’m sitting as hanging. But they thought I wanted another shoe shelf and by the time I saw it, it was to late. So oh well, I’ve got more boot storage and an extra (sort of random) shelf for flats and such? HA it’s fine!

I’m pretty sure that the top 3 shelves are practically all Dee Keller shoes. And then I actually have EVEN more of them that are going to go on display in my office upstairs. I can’t wait for that project to get underway. It’s also been a long-time coming. Needless to say, I’ve got just a few shoes…

As I take you through my closet, I’m going to do my best to talk about how we organized each item and tell you a little bit about how I changed things to make the closet work for me and my wardrobe. I wanted to start with one of my favorites:: shoes!

I customized this middle section to fit and display all my shoes. I realize I have quite a few shoes, but in my defense my mom is a shoe designer! When I moved in, this middle section was ALL hanging – there was a longer section for dresses and coats and then there was shorter hanging on top (like it’s designed on the right side of it). But I needed more storage room for my shoes, so I had these shelves custom built! I love how it turned out and I’m so glad that all my shoes now have a proper home. Plus, it looks neater!

For hanging all my clothes, we used uniform huggable hangers so that everything would look neater! It’s a pain to switch everything over, but it really does make a big difference to use the same type and color of hanger for all your clothes!

I’m obsessed with the way she organized my jeans! It makes it so much easier to see all my options and it’s actually a lot easier to keep neat as opposed to stacking them vertically. I think the key is to fold them pockets inward so that they fold neater and look more uniform across all the different styles.

We used the same folding technique for my workout clothes, pajamas, T-shirts, shorts, and loungewear. And it worked perfectly. I’m sure I’ll have to adjust or update the way things are organized as my wardrobe changes or grows etc. But for now, this method worked perfectly.

We used these acrylic organizers to display my necklaces because it was really important to me that I be able to SEE everything that I have. That way, it would be easier to put together outfits. I’m such a visual person and I want to be able to see my options all in one area or place. These acrylic organizers were the perfect solution.

So I actually customized this entire section right here. When I moved in, the entire section was hanging – a shorter section on top and a longer one for coats and dresses on bottom. I had custom drawers made and installed for the bottom section because I needed storage for my folded stuff. And then I had another shelf installed on the top so I’d have room for my handbags. You can see that the hanging bar is actually still there from its original build – oops I forgot to remove it! And for the hardware, I actually just got the cheapest option that looked decent – although maybe eventually I’ll upgrade to something fancy. This works for now though!

To organize my clutches, we actually used stacking shoe bins and they worked perfectly!

To organize my belts, we used these fabric drawer organizers that are typically used for socks, underwear and/or ties! And they worked perfectly!

To organize my earrings, we used acrylic stacking treys. They worked out ideally because you can actually adjust the organization compartments! And to organize my bracelets and watches, we used these acrylic bracelet stands.

There you have it! A complete tour of my new closet! Let me know if have any questions. I’d be more than happy to answer!

Like I know it’s your job, but I think I wouldn’t even know where to start to choose something to wear. I have a hard enough time with just my two little closets. And you’re always looking for new stuff too! Just curious. I always feel better when I go through everything and get rid of stuff, although of course I love shopping too :) haha

    Brighton, your closet is amazing! I don’t think I’d even know what to do with all those shoes! I also fold my jeans (and all the clothes I keep in drawers) so they’re all visible at once and it truly does make it easier to find everything. I read the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and now fold using the KonMari method. Amazing closet space- thanks for sharing! Also, I saw you on insta stories and I know about your secret excess storage. ;)

    “Although it’s a constant struggle for sure, I try not to get too wrapped up in the world of material things and consumerism. I’m constantly striving to keep things in perspective and remember that clothes are great and fun and all (!), but there’s just so much more to life.” – this is the most, THE MOST, ridiculous closet I have seen. I am looking for ideas for my own closet and saw yours on pinterest. Ridiculous. Stupid. The high shelves, you cannot even reach there. The amount of clothes – for what? Because you blog about it, maybe wear it once, twice for a photo shoot. And your own words quoted at the beginning of my post, you ‘TRY’ to not get wrapped up in material things……you are a joke. Get real

      This is incredibly rude and mean. You do realize that this is part of her job and how she provides for herself, right? Can you not celebrate the fact that she is able to do that and is being honest that her job has some struggles to it? I can’t imagine how it would feel to have a project that I’ve worked really hard on, and clearly proud of, be publicly shamed and verbally torn apart. I really hope Brighton never notices this comment. As you can see below, it is not the opinion of anyone else. We’re all fans here– take your trolling and disgusting attitude elsewhere.

    Some good, some bad here:

    – I started folding my jeans, tees and a few other things that way too: Folded fat /stored standing up. Love it. You can see more than the single item on top, and when it’s time to declutter, you can see which items are pushed to the back … and those are the ones to donate.
    – Love the drawers for folded clothes IN the closet; we’re in the process of building, and I can’t wait to get rid of dressers in the bedroom and keep ALL my clothes IN the closet. However, I don’t understand using custom-built drawers in a closet … seems to me this is a place for inexpensive IKEA drawers.
    – Love the acrylic necklace holders.
    – I wish we could’ve seen the lighting in this closet. Good lighting matters.
    – White with dark floors … ideal color choices. Since she has clothes in every color, this provides a good canvas and clashes with nothing.
    – But SO MUCH wasted space. I mean, a huge box that could hold loads of clothes … housing only a tray of jewelry or a few flowers … while elsewhere hats are sort of squeezed in underneath hanging clothes. Not the most efficient use of space, and I’m all about function first /looks second in a space like a closet. This makes me think this closet was built to impress, not to work.
    – This clearly was an expensive project, but the hanging rods look cheap … note how the ones with the most clothes are sagging? They’re going to need replacing.
    – I like that the “boxes” look like they could have hanging rods added later … flexibility is a good thing.
    – I would have liked to see a spot set aside for jeans (or whatever) that’ve been worn once and are being set aside to wear again. I also would’ve like to see a spot for a pretty hamper and a small place to sit down (the shelves themselves don’t count). Another thing I would expect is a full-length mirror. In a closet of this magnitude, I think most people would expect those things.
    – Much of the “wow” of this closet comes from the sheer magnitude of the clothing (shoes especially), but I don’t think it scores high on function.

    Love the closet…REALLY! I’m a guy that’s into closet designs. My wife and I are building a house and we have designed His and Hers separate closets. But both are about the same size. I’m more into the closet design though than she is. I want it to be functional while she doesn’t want it to look cheap with fake wood. I want my wife’s closet to look exactly like yours. The closets are going to be built in but the guy that does it doesn’t build in the drawers. Did you have a cabinet maker makenyour drawers? Any ideas on including ironing boards and maybe hampers? Any ideas for a His closet? I’m into sneakers and shoes overall. Thanks.
