We just did another round of organizing projects in LA – and while we missed being in Nashville – the results were worth it.
JAIME KING: CLOSET
Jaime’s closet was a big challenge simply because she has SO MANY GORGEOUS pieces of clothing. And it’s pretty hard to encourage purging and editing when everything looks so good on her. That said, we were able to eliminate a good amount. and incorporate a lot of organizational tools to properly sort and store everything she kept. Here is a shot of the closet as we first started pulling everything out.
The completed closet.
On the right: Coats and long dresses. The top shelf holds all the large purses organized by color and separated with acrylic shelf dividers.
Mid-sized handbags, sunglasses, and denim storage.
Jaime’s closet has a scarf pull-out. Such a genius way to organize a scarf collection.
How to handle a huge volume of sweaters? Folded and divided by acrylic shelf dividers.
CONSTANCE ZIMMER: PANTRY
Constance’s pantry was a tough project because the configuration has a lot of inaccessible space. And since she and her husband cook and bake a LOT, they need access to all of the things in the pantry. Joanna and I don’t often get stuck, but I have to admit, we had some moments of being stumped. Utilizing all the jars they already had, bins, and turntables, helped us maximize the space and make it more efficient.

REBECCA GAYHEART DANE + ERIC DANE: CLOSET AND DAUGHTER’S ROOM
So here’s the thing we didn’t know… Eric Dane is essentially a professional organizer. He should be a keynote speaker at NAPO meetings and give private tutorials for large sums of money. It was SO much more pressure to walk into a space that already had a huge amount of organization put into it. It meant everything we changed or edited, had to serve a better purpose than what initially existed. We were nervous to show our new CEO, Eric Dane, his new closet – but THANK GOODNESS he was happy with the result.
Jackets and pants. We also added linen storage boxes on top to contain sentimental items.
Shoes organized by type and color. Linen storage bins for accessories, hats, and gloves.
Rebecca and Eric’s daughter Billie already has our dream room, but we were honored to add some finishing touches and color coordination.
Bookcase filled with color-coordinated storage.
CATHERINE MCCORD: OFFICE + PLAY WALL
Catherine is one of our all time favorite people and her house and family just makes us want to stay all day. So we do! On this particular day, we did both the play area downstairs, and Catherine’s office.
