7. Organized Closet
Create a celebworthy closet space for Mom. Even if she doesn't have a magical dressing room like this one, a few personal touches can make even a plain closet worth spending time in. Organize clothes by color and type to make things accessible and easy on the eye. Replace any worn-out sweater boxes or shoe racks with labeled alternatives, hang purses and jewelry on the wall and neatly fold clothes in drawers.
Must-haves: Comfortable seating is a must for any high-heel owner. Help your mother get dressed in style with a cute ottoman or chair set near (or in) her closet.
Decorating tip: Fluorescent-lit dressing rooms have taught us that lighting makes all the difference when trying on clothes. Make sure your mom has a flattering spot to put her outfits together. A floor lamp could be a nice alternative to harsh overhead lighting.
