All around around the San Francisco Bay Area I come across the most unusual spaces made into closets and a great need for efficient space planning. Here is one such challenge. Although once I thought it out there was only one plan that I could design for this space. It certainly maximized the space for this client in Walnut Creek without wasting any space or creating difficult access for her clothing. It came out very nice and very functional.
Designed by Malka and hand crafted by my colleagues at Closet Innovations in Rohnert Park this lovely wall system was recently installed for a client in Sonoma County. We stained solid birch doors to match their kitchen cabinets but used a cleanable surface of matching high quality melamine for the interior shelving and drawers. A super look and very functional.
This wall system, I originally designed for my client in Napa with no backing on their plain white wall. Years later, we contacted a colorist from the Oakland area by the name of Kathy Farley of ART DECOR, also a painter to come out and consult us on color. She did a magnificent job in specifying wonderful colors through out the house Here on the wall system we added a colorful painted backing and the home owner had the wall painted. What a difference color makes in a home. This house and others with the gems of color painted walls and trim makes me happy.
The above photo is a partial view of a beautiful closet I designed here in my own neighborhood of Napa. The partial view of the closet is of a rack the client and I collaborated together in designing for her necklaces right next to her other accessories of scarf on my client's favorite scarf rack.
CUSTOM HOME OFFICE / WALL SYSTEM ... all in one. Time and space efficient, this wall system / home office has a space for everything. This was built in a bedroom with very little space left for anything else outside the bed and the side tables. Here we created a good looking wall system for her entertainment systems and her home office.
NAPA VALLEY CUSTOM LAUNDRY ROOM LAUNDRY ROOM CABINETRY
This a very unique and multifunctional laundry room exemplified above which even includes a dog kennel in the lower photo. Situated in Oakville of Napa Valley, Malka of Closet Innovations created this space for the client's needs at the bedroom end of the large home. It served the purpose of a laundry room, storage for vases and cleaning supplies and the extra area for one of their dog's.
A unique bed for a client's second floor landing. Not really a room and not an area that is large enough for a wall bed or a full size guest bed. This way we created a sofa for watching the T.V. that is behind the mirrors and a single size guest bed for a guest. The mirrors also house a home office desk and the sides of the bed have the end table with additional storage space.
The pleasure of living in Napa are enjoying the delightful homes I pass by each day going to work to see my local clients. Here are some photos posted in our local newspaper today noting these homes historical longevity in town. Malka of Closet Innovations in San Francisco & Napa
