House Update- the closet


The house is coming along and we're on the final draft, getting the quote and contract next week and putting down our down payment.  I'm soooooo excited and mostly anxious and really want to start seeing this come together.  Hopefully we will have a dig in April then they can pour the foundation once it's warmer in May (#greatwhitenorthproblems).

So that's basically what the exterior will look like- I'm really into nice neutrals right now and showed a picture over on the Blended Blog where I'm also blogging today.

I wanted to share some of the master closet pictures with you today- our suite is over the garage with our bedroom windows looking out to the front of the house, the dormer is the bathroom and the opposite side looking into the backyard with a little Juliet balcony is the closet. #swoon  Here's a back view for you.

The closet is the fun part and we have been meticulously going through everything to figure out what will go in each nook and cranny, shelf and drawer.  It's so tedious but in the end it will be worth it.

There's an island in the middle that will have a built-in makeup table- yay!  This was my inspiration for the design and will likely be that for the colour too. Maybe.  We'll see. It likely needs more Deena...

We've been spending tons of time in meetings and planning and I can't wait to actually see this come together.    Are there any necessities or dream items you would have in your closet?

asking for a friend....

Have a great weekend!


  1. Holy cow, you aren't building a house you're building a resort! I'd like to move in - immediately, lol! That closet is just beyond amazing, I cannot even imagine having one like that - I'd never come out of the closet - ha!

  2. ALL the YES'S!!! We were originally going to go even bigger with our house but with the last one being a Senior next year, we decided to wait couple years and get a house on Lake Michigan in our favorite town. My closet has been one of my favorite things, I stand in there in awe and you will too. You have the BEST taste and I love your plans for it! So classy!! Your home looks incredible, a dream come true and I am soooo happy for you!

  3. Dying! What a dream house and that that you put the hinged mirror in. It's going to be incredible!
