Renovate my home

Renovations are going on at the moment, I can't stop wanting to switch things up around the house. One of the things I've always envied is a huge walk in closet where one could just get lost in. Not literally of course, even I don't have that many clothes but what I'd like is a sanctuary, a place to escape to and just enjoy the things that I have. Look around and savour the vibrant colours and different textures of the pieces I've amassed. A room where my clothes can hang peaceably next to each other without being half suffocated to death when I try to wrangle them out of the wardrobe with doors that can no longer close. I'd like to see my shoes lined up neatly so that I don't keep wearing the same pair when I'm dashing out of the house even though I have a hundred and two.


At the moment, I've made concessions. My favourite glossy black desk has moved into my bedroom for occasions where I'd like to work quietly and at all other times I work at my dining table, a plan that is practical since I never dine there. My awkward study room has now been installed with built in wardrobes and I'm trying to create my own boudoir. Nothing overdramatic, the space is much too small to install the french daybeds and venetians mirrors of my fantasies but at least for now I think, it will do very nicely indeed. Here are more inspirational pictures to add to my collection.
Also, a question- does having more space make you want more?
