DREAM HOME, DREAM CLOSET

Charlotte, North

Carolina, residents Diane and Dan Horner built their dream home after becoming empty nesters — for Diane, the dream included a big, modern closet with “all the bells and whistles.” The result is not a walk-in but a walk-through closet, with his and hers spaces separated by an open doorway. The Horners achieved a cohesive look by choosing a warm gray finish for both rooms, with black drawers lending a masculine touch in Dan’s area. Diane’s side, on the other hand, features white drawers with delicate gold pulls, lighted jewelry drawers, a vanity, and a custom cabinet within the island to fit her carry-on suitcase. “We take a lot of weekend trips,” she says. “It’s nice not to walk to the other side of the house for my luggage.” CC design consultant: Morgan Haynie

SHHH .. . DON’T TELL “Have your wall paint custom-matched to your closet finish to create a more uniform look.” — Diane Horner
