Closets as Rooms

As part of Project Big Girl Room, I was thinking about turning one of my daughter’s two CAVERNOUS closets into a little room.  The room would function as a reading nook/play space.  I am envisioning comfortable chairs, floor mats, and/or bean bag chairs, a little bookshelf and a small table, with lots of wall art and maybe some horizontal stripes on the walls and doors? 

So, as far as inspiration goes, I am inspired by closets turned into home offices and reading nooks.  Home offices are a stretch for my not-yet 3 year-old, but that seems to be what a lot of people turn closets into!   The creativity below will knock your Ferragamos off….

Closets as Home Offices:  

{I die for that acrylic “ghost” desk chair….}

{I love the use of wallpaper on the back wall of the closet above and below.}

{I like the use of the curtains instead of the closet door in the picture above and below, but I think I am going to keep the closet doors for symmetry with the other closet in the room.}

{I like the little peg boards above.}

Closets as Reading Nooks/Daybeds:

{The horizontal stripes here look fabulous and I like that they used a twin bed that doubles as a reading nook and an extra bed for guests.  I don’t think our closet is big enough for that, but it’s perfect for this space.}

{Another closet turned reading nook that doubles as an extra bed.}

{Love this floor seating, simple book case and clip-on light.}

{This nook would have been my dream as a kid.  I love everything about it — the hanging bookshelf, the wall art and the little table with that sweet yellow lamp!}

What do you think?  Can I pull it off?
