LA CLOSET DESIGN X TANIA SARIN

If you’ve been following along on IG, you’ll know we teamed up with fashion influencer and content creator, Tania Sarin, to make all her closet dreams come true! With a moody aesthetic that’s all her own, and a super chic sense of style, Tania’s own personality served up plenty of style inspo for the space. Looking to showcase some of her most current pieces, Tania wanted a space where she could still entertain, shoot looks, and merchandise some of her favorite accessories. The added curve ball in creating this space - it also needed to serve as a bedroom for when guests are in town or friends need a place to crash!

A first of its kind, we teamed up with AllModern to create this convertible closet/bedroom with an elegant sleeper sofa. They were also so generous in helping incorporate lighting, accessories, and other furnishings!

The styling and accessories help to elevate the room, so it feels like an extension of the other living spaces. Meanwhile, smaller accessories are neatly tucked away in soft suede inserts.

The space is a modern, almost masculine mix of dark woods and gold-tone finishes. Contrasted with velvety soft fabrics and a plush area rug, the design is the perfect complement to her tailored mix of clothing and accessories.

A curated collection of bags (all shapes and sizes!) are neatly displayed in a custom wood cabinet. Each cubby is an opportunity to merchandise with her pieces, and less structured totes are hung from hooks.

We incorporated floating shelves for a boutique-like display of Tania’s favorite boots and shoes! In this way, her accessories become artwork for the space, and immediately inject her personal style.

The closet came together as the ultimate chic retreat for Tania! She can dress in here, have friends over, and enjoy being in the space! Three of her favorite prints found the perfect home above the sleeper sofa, and help to showcase her signature style in an artful way. Stay tuned for a full feature in the upcoming issue of Angeleno Mag!

LET THERE BE LIGHTING!

We’re heading straight into winter, and that sadly means darker days. So, here’s a bright idea: invest in some good closet lighting so you can really see your most prized possessions! While natural light is always ideal, when there’s less daylight, it’s necessary to supplement with alternatives. And, your closet is one area you definitely shouldn't settle for bad fluorescent lighting. So, here are a few options for illuminating your closet:


Recessed -- Recessed lights are nice options for the closet as they create ambient light, dispersing it throughout the space or directing it to highlight a specific item or section. The downside is that overhead lighting may not effectively illuminate every corner of the closet. So, it’s nice to integrate other lighting, like hanging rods, to maximize radiance.  Be sure to select a color temperature bulb between 3000K and 3500K to emit a crisp, white light.

Chandeliers and Pendants -- When it comes to dressing room lighting, function doesn’t require sacrificing fashion. Not only does a statement fixture like a chic chandelier or polished pendant over an island or ottoman emanate lots of light, it creates a glamorous focal point. The “Hallie” crystal chandelier (Lamps Plus) is the perfect example of a classic crystal chandelier that can elevate any closet, modern or traditional!


Sconces -- While many closets don’t typically have a ton of blank wall space, one way to take advantage of that area if yours does is to add a sconce. It provides additional lighting and adds a captivating design element. Sconces are also one of the more economical ways to enhance your space’s luminosity.

Concealed  -- One of the more clever ways to add light sources to your dressing room is through placing them in targeted locations that can amply spotlight a specific area. I love the idea of adding LED lighted hanging rods, uplighting, in-cabinets/drawers and mirrors with a backlit frame. These options tend to be practical, energy-efficient, low-maintenance, inexpensive and effective, yet subtle.
