{inspiration:wallpaper in the closet}


I came across the above photo last week and it got my head spinning! That wallpaper inside of the entry way closet really grabbed me and drew me in ... luxury in an unexpected location. Do you have an entry coat closet? I do, and mine is nothing but drab. So my mind started racing with possibilities of course. And the best part? Using a high end paper in a small space like this won't break the bank {kind of like the powder room}, but will be guaranteed to make you {and your guests} smile every time you open those doors :)

If I was to choose a paper for my own entry closet, I'd probably gravitate towards something bold, whimsical, maybe even cheeky ... like this:


Yep, that's just about right! LOVE. Have any of you wallpapered your front entry closet? I'd love to hear what paper you chose! If you've posted pics of it, leave the link in your comment!

What a great idea! Such a fun little surprise when you open the door... and economical since it's such a small space.

I've seen a lot of posts lately about decorating closets. I love the idea of putting wallpaper in my closet and doing other things to make my closet feel like a boutique.

I've been contemplating this idea for a while. I have such a boring front closet and I think it would make me smile to open it each day and see a beautiful wallpaper print. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love that idea!!! It's funny because I live in a super old house that was built in 1927 and when we renovated .... we noticed that there was wall paper EVERYWHERE. They wall papered the ceilings, the cupboards and yes...... the closets.

I've thought about doing a stencil to mimic wallpaper in my own walk in closet. I think that would be so glam. Someday...

Closets are the forgotten space, and yet something like this is so unexpected, how can one not want to do this? I love your cheeky pick!

I always loved wallpaper in the closet !!! It's someting I would like to do in my "future" wardrobe because the one I have nnow is so small...

Our front closet is so drab. I'm going to be reorganizing it but it would be so fun to throw some wallpaper up in there too. I love the little girl's closet, so pretty! I love the idea of high impact that won't break the bank.

Ciao Nancy,

if I had a closet ( I have wardrobe only ) I would definitely go for the same wallpaper as yours. I love Fornasetti designs and especially this one. While decorating our new house I thought about covering the hallway, or at least a wall of it with this wallpaper but no permission from my husband yet :( I am working on it. In the mean time, I got the samples from Cole&Son and framed some of the complete faces, and hang them in our bathroom, post will come on air these days. I also have my bathroom and kitchen backsplash tiles with this Fornasetti design, and some other Fornasetti items like book, plates etc. And Fornasetti cushion and a chair is also on the way : ) If you want to have a look at our bathroom and kithcen, here is the link:

Aylin
