We recently had the pleasure of helping a local Raleigh blogger and influencer organize her closet and pantry following a move. Claire Guentz and her husband were moving into a new home with some fabulous features including a gorgeous closet and a walk-in pantry. They wanted to make the most of these new spaces in their beautiful new home. Our team spent a day with Claire and completely organized her closet, pantry and kitchen.
With Claire’s closet we focused on some foundational steps in our organizing process. We started with a clean slate by removing everything from the closet. Then, we organized everything by type first – then color. We then placed items back in the closet using matching slimline hangers, a total game changer in creating that cohesive organized closet look. We also helped Claire fold and organize her extensive collection of athleisure (she is actually launching her own line soon!)
For Claire’s pantry we selected a mix of products from mDesign to fit her aesthetic preferences. After removing everything, we strategized the best layout and worked our magic to create a pantry that’s both highly functional, and beautiful. An important tip we shared with Claire is the importance of removing everything from its packaging. Not only does it create a more streamlined look, it makes it easier to grab what you need and go. For more pantry tips, be sure to check out Claire’s post.
We often get asked – what’s it really like working with a professional organizer? Well, Claire did a great job of explaining that in her blog post about working with us. So check it out for a detailed explanation of the process plus some more beautiful after shots!
