California Closets—at least in my world—is synonymous with having made it. I equate a fully tricked out walk-in closet with my arrival into the life I’ve always imagined. If I have space for a walk-in closet, I probably have six dogs and a florist on retainer, too. This is to say...a custom closet system is a total luxury.
Who in the world of home-making is more associated with aspirational high living? Why, Dame Martha Stewart, of course. Even her line of paint in Michaels is acrylic opulence. When I heard she was launching a closet organizing collection, I had my fingers crossed that it would be somehow favorable to my bank account, but alas, to outfit my closet with this line, I’d need to spend about three month’s rent.
But…but…soft close drawers, a hidden track system, a modular design to expand with ease—it’s, as the kids say, #goals. The line has specific structures for office, pantry, closet, and media centers, and they’re all able to live freestanding as detached wardrobes. They come in classic color pairings, like white-washed wood and gold, to coordinate with any decor style—how very Martha! It’s all just a big step up from the typical wire shelves and veneered drawers of yesteryear’s custom closets.
Okay, so I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m not the demo for this line, but someone is. If you’re that someone, would you please try it out and let me know how it’s changed your life? Or that it’s totally not worth it and I shouldn’t lose sleep over it?
In the meantime, I’ll be ever-vigilant for more Martha launches, and continue to enjoy her many other licensing partnerships, like doggy leather jackets and office supplies. I’ll be fine.
