Project walk in closet

Posted on 2 min read
One of the ongoing projects we have in our house is the walk in closet. Our house was built in 1913 and survived the bombings of Rotterdam, Netherlands. So remodelling this gorgeous house with all its original features is something that is not done over night so to speak.

So we do a bit at the time. Sometime a little bit here and a little bit there. Cause when also having a home office for me the house really has to be functional during renovations. But to get inspired we watch a lot of television shows about house renovations. Basically we binge watch anything from Million Dollar Listing LA – I love Josh Flagg – to re runs of the Aussie show The block to the Dutch show Makelaars met een missie – Realtors with a mission.

And what REALLY surprises us is the Dutch show. A show where everybody seem to think that a room with a window and an open closet equals a walk in closet. Well it’s not. It’s a room with a window and an open closet. No more no less. The only thing that will truly come out of this kind of construction would probably be the house owners missing out on a den plus some sadly discoloured and faded clothing items.

Let’s do this!

I forgot to place one of my favourite handbags in its dust bag for a year and know EVERYTHING that is to know about faded and discoloured items. In the case with my handbag from Karen Millen it actually worked out quite well since it was a purple bag turned raspberry red and now is so much cooler. But still the buyers and the realtors seem to believe any spare bedroom and or den equals a walk in closet.

In our house we have a designated area for the walk in closet. A dark room inside our bedroom with no windows. At least not after we close the somewhat misplaced skylight in this space. The room in itself is quite a big space big and by opening up the roof by the skylight it could also have turned into a staircase up to the private roof terrace I dream about.

But we will indeed stick to the plan which is to turn this ugly excuse of an empty – well maybe not completely empty – space to a walk in closet.Β  And for this reason only my poor hubby have agreed to actually watch Sex and the City to really get my vision in where we should go with this project. Meanwhile I collect inspiration on Pinterest. Stay tuned for photos.. πŸ˜‰

The photo illustrating this post was shot about a year ago. For sure I used my Panasonic Lumix and the flowers belong to the tree of the neighbours. Looking out the window it seems we’re not far away to the 2019 edition of this cool and colourful event πŸ˜€Β
