Room of the month: Walk-in wonder

The closets certainly were not an afterthought in this Lowcountry dream home.

Like kitchens and bathrooms, closets are now the focal point of many homes. For this glamorous closet, the homeowner worked with her personal decorator and the design and production team from Closets by Design to transform a space from a home expansion into the closet of her dreams.

The overall design and color palate convey the aura of a designer boutique, blending elegance and warmth with spaciousness, comfort and functionality.
