We’ve all seen the above closet before. We’ve obsessed over it. Pinned it. Longed for it. But I bet we never gave much thought to the mastermind behind this closet. Or, for that matter, any of the other closets that have served as serious daydream and eye candy. Right? Today, I’m beyond honored to introduce you all to Melanie Fascitelli, the Founder and Creative Director of Clos-ette, a custom couture closet builder, and Clos-ette Too, an organizational line which offers hangers, scented folding boards, and other storage goodies (more on this later — trust me, you’ll want to keep reading!). You can just call her the Dream Closet builder.
I was lucky enough to chat with Melanie and learn more about how she got into the business of creating drool-worthy closets, her best tips to give your closet an easy glam makeover (even if you have limited space!), the influence of Pinterest in closet design, and how to store your summer duds as we head into fall. Read on for more, and to learn how you can enter for a chance to win well over $100 in closet accessory goodies from Clos-ette Too.
EDITOR’S NOTE: I can absolutely vouch for slim hangers. I recently converted ALL my hangers to slim ones, and it’s amazing how much more space you get! Clos-ette Too sells pretty ones here. You can also purchase them from retailers like Bed, Bath & Beyond or The Container Store.
You read that right, chickadees. Thanks to Clos-ette, one lucky reader will be taking home their very own Clos-ette Too Signature Jewelry Travel Case, dubbed ‘the Birkin of jewelry cases,” along with two sets of scented folding boards for sweaters (that’s ten boards total!). My current travel solution when I travel with lots of jewelry is to put it all in a plastic bag, sooo, I envy whoever wins this. I also store my sweaters with dryer sheets, and have a small hunch that a lavender or cedar scented board — which will also help the sweater hold its shape — is probably a little preferable.
