After more than a decade designing celebrity closets, she intended to design a simple, standard master closet in her Los Angeles home. This big project evolved into converting a room into her master closet and then adding a dressing room plus a stylish area for her enviable handbag collection. The project took almost two years to complete. “It’s been a long time coming,” Adams says. “I really wanted it to coincide with my personal taste.”
The elegant space is centered around a neutral palette that’s reflected throughout other areas of her home. It boasts opulent touches, ranging from hanging rods and a Hermes ceiling wallpaper to a custom Portola paint color called “Closet Cashmere”—created just for Lisa—and a striking geometric LED brass light fixture.
While Adams’ well-designed this celebrity closet was not easy to execute. There are practical decorating tips to steal from this designer:
A closet should be filled with your necessities. “You don’t need 10 sweaters that are falling over or hanging so stuffed that you can’t put anything back,” Adams says. “Going into your closet and getting dressed shouldn’t be a stressful affair.”
Consider using drawer inserts or organizers. “Whenever you open up a drawer and it’s organized, with partitions and cubbies and everything in its place, everybody goes ‘oh my gosh’, she says.” At the same time, you should keep your shoes organized. “Any time you show someone a boot tree or see the boots hanging on a rod in a tree, that sort of gets a reaction,” Adams says. “To see boots organized is a nice feature that anyone can do.”
Lisa advises to incorporate high-tech solutions in your celebrity closet: “Try smart home lighting that allows you to hook everything up with your phone,” Adams advises. “And you can also add locks to closet doors. I use biometric locks in my own closet.” Adams is also partial to automated features like motorized hanging rods that can move up and down with the press of a button or a carousel-style shoe organizer.
Blush pink is all the rage among her celebrity closet base. “People think blush pink looks great on social media, especially Pinterest,” Adams says. “A white closet doesn’t feel as custom as blush pink and it still feels neutral.”
Even if you live in a small space, there’s still room to infuse a touch of luxury into your closet. “Use all of the depths so that nothing is stuck behind. For instance, you can do a double or triple row of shoes or a double or triple stack of jeans, but just make sure you are still able to see everything.”
According to Adams, incorporating seating in closets wasn’t popular some years ago, but that’s no longer the case. ” It wasn’t a place to hang out and relax in, but now seating makes it feel like a legitimate room and makes the whole dressing experience feel so much better.”
Displaying shoes in a floor-to-ceiling shelving unit is one of the best ways to give the space a more sophisticated feel. “Arrange shoes by style and by color, and you can even put wallpaper on the back of it,”
