Create a Dream Space for your Clothes and Accessories with California Closets

CT Style

Organizing a closet is no easy task. With all of our shoes and accessories, it can be difficult to figure out where to put everything. But California Closets can create a custom space for your entire wardrobe.

“I would definitely say that I’m a fashionista, that I love clothes a little too much,” joked homeowner Laura Langan.

But that passion left her closet overflowing.

“I felt that I was kind of you know taking over other closets in my house and I couldn’t find anything,” Langan recalled. 
So she turned to California Closets and designer Mary Jo Fornshell to create a space of her own.

“California Closets is a custom experience that takes peoples dreams into a reality,” Fornshell explained.

The pair met to go over Langan’s wish list.

“She wanted a dressing room that felt more like a boutique than a walk in closet,” Fornshell said.

The designer also took inventory of Langan’s clothes. 

“We measure everything that they have, including shoe height and lengths of dresses, everything to make a very custom space and to actually get in as many things as we can,” Fornshell explained.

All of the closet’s details were designed to suit Langan’s taste, from the finishes, to the hardware, to the lighting.

“The mirror adds a lot of depth and a lot of glamour so any time you have a lot of glass and light and mirror it just gives that bling feeling,” Fornshell said.

“My experience working with California Closets was wonderful,” said Langan. “She delivered and completely exceeded my expectations.”

And now Langan has the closet she’s always dreamed of.

“The thing that I love most about it is I can find everything, but it’s visually beautiful when I walk in,” Langan said. “The color combination, the materials that we chose, it’s truly, you know a dream for me.”
