As part of moving to New York City last year I had to quickly get used to streamlining my home life. My husband and I downsized from a two-bed, two-bath apartment with four closets, to a one-bed, one-bath apartment with one closet! That closet sits along one side of our open plan kitchen, living and dining area at the front of the apartment in our Brownstone property. This one space houses all the clothes, coats, shoes, belts, watches, accessories – you name it – for both of us, so it’s safe to say it’s been a squeeze! So, when Formica got in touch asking to partner with us to makeover our closet with their Formica Laminate product, we were thrilled! As well as adding new lighting, new sliding doors, additional shelving and drawer space, we also covered the built in with a beautiful Calcutta Marble and Salvage Planked Elm Formica Laminate finish. I chose these two finishes to bring visual and textural contrast to the space: I love the the smooth, cool marble is juxtaposed alongside the rich and textured planked elm. Check out the whole renovation in this fun video over on She Knows. Let me know which design elements you love from our new closet!
