This is a potential fish pan post. So skip it if posts on the finer (luxurious) things in life are not your thing. SKIP IT.
We were recently in Hong Kong visiting friends, using free tickets on frequent flier mileage that was about to expire on Philippine Airlines. They had just finished renovating their enormous apartment/home on Hong Kong Island and we were invited to see it. I just had to take photos of the dressing room/closet of the lady of the house, as it was pretty impressive, particularly in a country where this space is larger than the average bedroom. The friend is a purveyor of luxury fabrics for interior decorating, and has a weakness for clothing and accessories. The Teen, up top, was the first to draw the sliding doors into this private and intensely organized space.
There were two levels of racks for everything and clothes were organized by color, season, formality, etc. I didn’t spend much time closely inspecting the place, but the Teen was in absolute awe of the possibilities. Mrs. MM was impressed as well. If you saw Mrs. MM’s and my closets, you would be shocked by how cramped and stuffed they are… This one looked like a very upscale kind of clothing boutique, albeit with more stock on offer!
The hangers were all the same, the pants organized by type and color, and the long dresses (gowns?) hung in their special place…
This is only a glimpse of the dozens of shoes (or was it hundreds) that the lady of the house had on special stands, and then the rest in their original boxes, labelled for easy identification. What is it with women and their shoes? Remember this other friend’s shoe organization system?
Jackets and handbags were on another wall of the large space, and accessories and other doodads in a center island with a glass top. Amazing. I was impressed. Even if I had something similar in our own home, I would have to buy new underwear to display just in case these friends came over to see the dressing area. Wouldn’t want old “bacony” like garter straps anywhere near visible. Hahaha. Thanks P and family for the tour of the new digs. The Teen is now thinking about how many decades of hard work it will take before she can do something equally stunning…
