  1. Wow, Julia!
    Das sieht soo viel besser aus. Super gemacht. Love the stool, wallpapaer and ceiling light!:)

  2. Bold and beautiful! Love it. And can I just say that you have totally fun clothes. I mostly stay in the gray/black range, but I love all your patterns!

  3. Congrats on your magazine news!! I think it’s awesome that your ceiling matches many of your clothes!

  4. Julia, this is so, so pretty! I love a dramatic ceiling, and that light is outstanding. What a nice space! So happy for you and your big home shoot!

  5. Congratulations on the magazine venture! Looking forward to seeing it. The closet is rad! Love the ceiling paper choice. You are an organizing guru!

  6. It looks amazing and so very sexy! I’m going to try your mirror trick- very clever. (ps, so where are the hubby’s clothes?) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thanks Amy!
      The hubby is fortunate enough to have his very own walk-in closet ๐Ÿ˜‰ One major reason I love our little house so much!

  7. That look so good Julia!! What a beautiful oasis you have created. I love the hit of copper in there. That lamp is beautiful as is the stool.

  8. So lovely, Julia! The copper, pink, white and black look so great together! Let’s not talk about my closet, okay? I would never have the patience or motivation to give it such a lovely makeover ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Your closet is beautiful Julia! I love the wallpapered ceiling. I’ve been thinking a lot about our closet lately but I should probably finish our laundry room first before I start another makeover haha

  10. SO flippin’ cute. That light fixture. Geez. I’m inspired but also jealous of your huge walk-in…My old home has more of “put a foot in it” sized closets.

    1. Thanks Heather. It might took bigger in the pictures than it actually is ๐Ÿ˜‰ but it sure makes me happy.

  11. I love it Julia!! I can’t imagine the ache of your shoulders after wallpapering the ceiling, but it looks amazing. Totally worth all your pain!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That is one Striking closet! Oh I LOVE IT. LOVE IT ALL!!

  13. I love everything about this and the mirror trick is awesome! I’d love to know your go to copper spray paint because the light looks amazing! I’m struggling with shoe storage in my space ๐Ÿ™

  14. Looks greats and gives me some ideas for mine. Can I ask how big your closet is? And where did you gets those wire shoe shelves?

    1. Hi Jen, the closet is only around 73″ x 84″ and the shoes are on wire shelving turned upside down. They sell brackets for just that purpose at HomeDepot. Works great.

    2. Thanks for the info! Mine are a ton smaller then! but I have lots of height and still trying to maximize that space efficiently (already have built in shelves, so…)

  15. oh my goodness I am obsessed with every detail!!!! I could live in your closet!!!

  16. Nothing like a magazine feature to get your butt in gear huh? I am seriously jealous, my closet needs serious help!

  17. WOW! How beautiful.. love that gorgeous ceiling and everything else. I have always loved your shoes, now jewelry is included and clothes of course.. wish I was little enough to get your hand me downs.

  18. OMG Julia! Its gorgeous. I love the high contrast and of course you know I love the copper. Adore all the details pretty displays of jewelry. What a great update without the heavy lifting of a complete overhaul. You nailed it friend.

  19. That wallpaper, swoon! You’re totally right. There’s so much personality and pretty things to catch your eye you don’t even notice the wire shelving.

  20. I love the attention to detail that you’ve put into your closet. Is that a wood stained block the pearls are sitting on or is that a semi precious stone? It’s absolutely gorgeous.

  21. i’m obsessed with your closet! i tried commenting yesterday but my phone was being dumb. the ceiling is redic awesome

  22. I’d walk into your closet & probably never leave. Love the copper accents too! And I’m positively giddy for your DIY Mag feature eeep! You deserve this x1000, xoxo.

  23. LOVE it all! Nice work Julia! The wallpaper on the ceiling is amazing! I’m about to do our master closet and wanted to wallpaper the ceiling but cannot make a decision!

  24. WOW!! Gorgeous! That wallpapered ceiling is so fabulous – and the whole space looks so beautifully pulled together- you must enjoy hanging out in your closet!! How exciting about DIY magazine…Congrats!

  25. i love how much bigger the closet looks with the mirror trick. i definitely have to figure out a way to do that in my own WIC. do you mind me asking where you got the pink/coral boxes? thanks!

  26. Love the ceiling, clever idea and the shoes in one pic! Have to laugh at the small closet remark, had to re-read that sentence. I think your closet is bigger than our only bathroom and probably half the size of our bedrooms. Envious of your closet and no sharing either, my dream!

  27. I love the mirror and the upside down shelves. Organized and beautiful! May I ask for some details on those great black shoes?

  28. Love your closet, and love the ceiling design!!! I don’t think I would have ever been brave enough to try it myself. Great to see though if I ever do.

  29. Love your closet makeover! I followed your link from I heart organizing. Can you tell me what Ikea boxes you used and how you painted them? Spray paint?

    Thanks!!

    1. Thanks so much. Unfortunately those boxes aren’t available and yes I did paint the boxes with regular spray paint. Very very easy project. Ikea has plenty of other great boxes though.

  30. I love your closet!!! So pretty and organized! I am dying to know where your purse and black shoes are from, love both!!!

    1. Hi Ashley and thank you. The shoes are $20 Macy’s INC clearance and the purse was from Ross.

  31. I am not sure how I missed this post before…what a great tip! You absolutely don’t notice the wire shelves anymore. On a scale of 1-10, how hard is it to hang wallpaper on the ceiling?

    1. Haha, that was not my favorite part. Hanging wallpaper on a ceiling isn’t all that easy not sure what I’m comparing it too though if I’d have to put it on a scale from 1-10. But it sure was a pain in the rear.

  32. Those boxes are awesome… nice organization! I keep planning to organize our closet but we’ve lived here 3 years and I still haven’t unpacked all of the stuff I threw on the floor when we moved in. Yikes.
