Wall-Mounted Closet Valets

Often times, a “valet” for a closet is a bar that either slides out or extends downwards; not quite the same thing as a real valet system. So if you want more than just a bar, but do not want to take up valuable floor space, what are your options?

Closet, meet Andy, designed by Diogo Frias and available through Wewood. Andy is both a wall-mounted hanger and a valet. When not needed, Andy neatly tucks away. As an added bonus, the top ledge can be used as either storage or display space.

Somewhat similar in style to Andy is Mondo Cane’s valet.

A simpler and a more cost effective item is available through Bunk-Bed-Loft-Bed.com. The sturdy unit folds away and still offers space to hang both a jacket and pants.

Last but not least is Kohler’s Margaux valet, which some of you may recall seeing in the spring in my review of K|BIS. As I mentioned previously, I love the simplicity of design and the fact that the hanger is moveable. If you steam your clothes in the laundry room and then walk them back to your closet, you can easily have a valet in each area and carry just the hanger portion with you. And when the hanger is not present, Margaux is still valuable as a hook.

Whatever your choice, know that there are many functional options available in a wide range of prices. If your closet has the space to accommodate one of these beautiful systems, why would you not install one?

Recycled Shipping Containers as Buildings?

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Have you ever driven by a stockyard and wondered what becomes of all those stacked shipping containers when they are deemed no longer useful for transport? Increasingly, many are being transformed into usable spaces, both commercially and residentially.



Inflatable Structures Help Solve Space Dilemmas

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Do you think air pumps are just for tires and balloons? I think AirClad would strongly disagree. For years, the UK-based company has been producing temporary structures for both commercial and residential use that inflate when needed (usually for three days to three weeks) and deflate and neatly store away until they are needed again. Made of fabric, the structures are designed to compress with a ratio of 100m2 of usable space to 1 cubic metre when stored.



Design for the Greater Good – Mattel Children’s Hospital

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Though some see design as a waste of time, the truth of the matter is that design has the power to change lives. It can brighten a sunken mood. It can envelope and bring a sense of safety. It can also unite; bringing people together to focus on a worthwhile task or cause.

Colour + Colour + Neutral

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

"For me, colour-plus-colour-plus-colour isn’t as good an equation as colour-plus-colour-plus-neutral. Adding a neutral keeps colours from looking childish and amateurish, and colours look richer when they’re paired with neutrals." -Betsy Burnham (House Beautiful, June 2012)



The Design of Yoga

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

September is National Yoga Month. While a yoga practice should not focus on the look of the studio, a space can certainly impact one’s practice just as much as the combined presence of those practicing within the space. As an avid practitioner and teacher, I have compiled images of studios in which I would love to practice.
