The $100,000 Closet

Please let me know what time the revolution begins...

[quote]What was once a humble storage space is becoming a trophy accessory, growing in size to rival living rooms and equipped with breakfast areas, sound systems and chandeliers.

[quote]When Rochelle Maize renovated her 6,110-square-foot Beverly Hills, Calif., home, it wasn't a new kitchen or home theater at the top of her list of must-haves—it was a closet.

[quote]'We don't call them closets anymore,' says contractor Gary Drake, who says the preferred term for such spaces is now 'dressing room.'

[quote]These days, the cost of the closet can rival or surpass that of the kitchen. WSJ's Mansion team has a sneak peek into some of these trophy closets. She hired a designer to create a 400-square-foot master closet with a flat-screen television, a refrigerator for Champagne, white cabinetry with silver-leaf etchings and a large crystal chandelier. Total cost: $100,000. "I wanted to feel like I was walking into a very luxurious Beverly Hills boutique," says the real-estate agent, who adds that the space, designed by Lisa Adams of L.A. Closet Design, was partly inspired by the Chanel store. "The first thing I do when I go home is go upstairs and be in that space."

[quote]Once a secondary space designed primarily for storage, the humble closet is taking center stage. The latest in high-end master closets go well beyond the typical walk-in and are created to look more like plush lounges or designer stores. Clothing and handbags in glass display cases are lighted like sculptures; custom-designed couches are arranged near Baccarat crystal bars or dedicated breakfast areas.

[quote]"I really wanted a place that felt special and was a personal retreat," says Ms. Seldorff, a client of Ms. Adams. "When I get dressed everyday it makes it feel like a special event."

Stuff like this fueled the French Revolution.

[quote]Ms. Charlton of Clos-ette says a new feature she's including in recent designs is a "virtual styling tool" consisting of computer screens and iPads set up in the closet so people can work remotely with a stylist who has a visual inventory of their clothes to scroll through.

Jennifer Saunders needs to do another Abfab if only to include a scene of Edina doing exactly this. This just has "Edina Monsoon" written all over it.
