Good home design takes into account the way you live your life: what you do first thing in the morning, how you spend your days, and how you use your home when you’re there.
If you get started with a cup of coffee in the morning and like to wind down with a glass of wine at night, a custom wine and coffee bar makes perfect sense.
We like to picture this wine and coffee bar (with drop-down TV) in or next to your walk-in closet.
This month, we’re featuring a weekly series of interviews with influential design experts to find out what good design means to them and how they get inspired.
Today, meet Erin Feher, executive editor of California Home+Design and the author of the forthcoming book: Great Houses of San Francisco, 1875-1945. She lives in the Tenderloin with her husband and their many bicycles.
We need our homes to match how we feel inside. Coming home and enjoying the trimmings and trappings of a desirable lifestyle starts with design.
Walking into a closet that is cluttered and stacked to the rafters with things you don’t need or use is no way to live.
Create a sense of luxury in your closet design with these tips from our design expert Ginny Snook Scott.

The terrific thing about color is that you can organize and decorate with the trends, while still leaving room to update and upgrade later!

I recently worked with a design-savvy client who is a busy project coordinator for a large media communications company in Toronto.
She wanted to update her poorly designed walk-in closet. The ad hoc storage solutions didn’t function well in the narrow space and were an uninspired attempt at space planning.
It was time for a change.
Our chief design officer Ginny Snook Scott travels throughout the U.S. and to the Milan Furniture Fair every year seeking out innovative and stylish design trends.
European trends in design continue to inspire her – and influence the products that California Closets offers to our clients.
We interviewed Ginny on the hottest European trends that are influencing our custom closet designs throughout North America.
So many women dream of a “hers” closet, where everything is custom organized to fit their wardrobe and their lifestyle – without sharing the space with a spouse!
This California Closets walk-in is the perfect example of what a dream “his and hers” closet can be. It features stunning contemporary features and functional design.
Take a look at these pictures and imagine that this is YOUR custom closet!
Custom closets aren’t just functional storage systems, they’re extensions of the style and personality of your home.
One of our most popular styles is the “boutique closet”. This is a walk-in closet that makes you feel like you’re entering your own personal boutique.
With a few simple touches and a smart design you can create your own boutique closet!
