California Closets has selected the “Design of the Month” Winner for May 2010 – The Ultimate Dressing Room, designed by Elyse Santoro of California Closets, takes the cake!  This oversized walk in closet is shown in a Rustic Cherry finish with Polished Brass accents.

“Elyse, I am so excited, because not only do I have more shelf space than I ever imagined, but I have extra shoe space – lots!  As you know, for me that is HUGE!!!”  – Homeowner (Coventry, CT)

One thought on ““Design of the Month” Winner – May 2010

  1. Elyse,

    This is a beautiful walk-in closet! I love the way that different types of clothing are organized into their own sections. And the “ladder” of shelves for folded items are right there with the hanging items to put together an outfit easily. I know you worked carefully on every detail and it shows!

    It must be a pleasure for your customer to get dressed in her California Closet each day!
