Closet transformation in the works

It is known that I love wallcoverings, can do the installation of wallcoverings (mine only, never a client's) and I especially love wallpapering the inside of closets, here are some samples of taking a small space from drab to fab: sons's closetchic hallwaysmall Hamptons closet , a pantry and my daughter's dollhouse bookcase.

This weekend I'm going to work a little magic in my daugther's walk-in closet. Here are some of the elements of her soon to-be new space.
The World's Away lighting fixture
She picked this Sonia's Place (to the trade) wallcovering. I just realized how much it resembles my blog design!  
My daughter has a ton of hair accessories that were once tossed into the bathroom drawers. It was messy, the bows/flowers were getting squashed and the ones on the bottom were never worn. To solve the problem I purchased an inspiration board and instead of using it for images/memos, it is hung on the inside of her closet door and used to hang her hairbands. It is a $10 fix that works like a charm!  
Little touches, big rewards! Are you sprucing up any little areas in your home?

You should become a closet designer! So many fabulous ideas!! I also love wallpapering the inside of closets, makes it that much more interesting to open the door to ( and a heck of a lot prettier)I am planning on doing that in my own closet but am scoruing the market for the "right one"...in due time. Your daughters project looks like its going to be the envy of every little girl...cannot wait to see!

The headband board is sure to be copied throughout the blogosphere. Simple and brilliant!

And, I have to admit, sheepishly, how much I envy your daughter's closet color palette! And, she and mommy clearly have similar taste - love the similarity of the wallpaper and your blog background!
