Farmhouse Closet

Farmhouse Closet Trends via ABFOL

Zillow Digs has announced the top closet trends for the 2015 Fall season. They’ve partnered with The Container Store and asked several bloggers (including me) to interpret these trends.  Whether it’s a master closet, a kids closet or a linen closet, my interpretation has to include Farmhouse Style. I created the style board below which  helped me visualize and plan the space.

Linen Closet Makeover

My closet trend interpretation includes a linen closet makeover, which features several products from the Container Store (including an Elfa Closet System).

Don’t forget to utilize the door. Simplicity is key this year. Instead of cramming things into bulky door organizers, purge away and go for a classic hook. Less is definitely more.

Here are a few must haves if you’re going for a farmhouse look.

  • White walls. These are a must if you’re looking for that farmhouse feel. They are classic and will never go out of style.
  • Woven Baskets. Natural materials fit the farmhouse mold well. I use the Holga Bins.
  • Wire Baskets. I love the look. The Iron Toy Barrel is a great container for dirty clothes.
  • White towels. Like white walls, white towels give a classic feel to the space.
  • Farmhouse Style Lighting. The icing on the cake when it comes to decorating a space is the lighting, and gooseneck or cage lighting screams farmhouse style! If you have the option to install lighting, it will transform your space. I used lighting that plugged into a wall outlet because we didn’t have lighting wired in the closet.
  • The Laundress. Not a must have but I thought I’d throw it in since I love their products.  The bottles match the decor perfectly (black and white) –  which is important right?! They are my favorite natural cleaners for linens and clothing.
  • Vintage collectibles. Enamelware, french soap, or old quilts mixed in with the necessities gives the space a little extra farmhouse feel. If you have the room, it’s a great touch to add.

Another trend you can add to your closets this season are barn doors. They bring an element of charm and character to the space. Here’s one that I absolutely love.
