We could not have a walk-in closet, but the room had side-by-side reach-in closets. So when we purchased dressers, I got us identical 48 inch high long dressers and put them back-to-back in front of the two closets. His dresser is right in front of the closets. Mine is backed up to his, so that standing at mine, I am looking at the closets. So with my closet door open, I can see what is there and chose things from the drawers to go with it.

Our dressers are topped with stone, so if we keep them uncluttered they function as an "island" in the dressing area and can be a place to fold clothes.

For twelve years now, we have had just the central ceiling fan light and a piano lamp on these dressers that we use to point up at our closets to see by. We remodeled the house's full bathroom to a handicapped roll-in shower and widened the bedroom doors to 36 inches. Our room did not have a wall long enough for the door, so we had to make a diagonal wall to do it. It added a few square feet and made our entry much bigger in feel. Our bedroom and the one next to it are about to get new cork floors. Our room will have a wool oriental carpet that was once in my living room. It is primarily a gray-blue, with pink and cream and peach and green floral accents. I found these sconces on Houzz that will hang over each of our closets like a canopy. I long ago double-rodded those closets, so there is not room inside for lights to shine down from the tops or from the sides, but the clothes are right at the edge of the doors, so these lights should illuminate them just fine. I will put them right at the edge of the closet opening and have the carpenter scribe the door framing to meet up with them.

They are 18 inches wide (half as wide as the closet opening each will sit above) and project out 8.25 inches and are 9.5 inches tall. Being ceramic bisque, they may be painted with the wall paint. I am going to paint them with the white trim paint color. The room color is a pale gray-blue.

The triangular shape is also repeated in our wall sconces on either side of the bed. They are quite small, which is the only thing that gives me pause. Otherwise, they are going to be nice, articulating chrome swing-arm lamps with dimmable LED lights that will be great to read by.

The ceiling fan is the Minka Air Cone, which duplicates the shape as well as I could find, only in the round.
