5 of Our Favorite Dream Closets

Irwin Weiner ASID - The weekend is coming, and I immediately think about doing laundry. Every Saturday morning (almost),, we separate lights and darks, take the shirts to the cleaners, and do our laundry loads. And that gets me thinking about closets and how we can always do better. Look at the walk-in closet in the top photo, for example. London designer Johnathan Reed created this masterpiece in a converted mews. I'm sure the wall with windows on the left used to be the side of an old horse stall, but it suits the new space beautifully and creates a great view of a tidy and well-organized closet. What a beauty!
