Walk in Closet with storage for Shoes and Handbags by Tim WoodTraditional Closet, London

This walk in closet is part of a large property in central London. The client asked Tim Wood to come up with a storage solution for her extensvie collection of shoes and handbags. Tim Wood designed and made shelving that would accommodate the exact proportions of her shoes. The rails that the handbags hang from were all specially moulded to echo the exact shape of the clients shoulder, so that they could retain their shape perfectly. The closet houses over two hundred pairs of shoes, and can easily be expanded further to accommodate new purchases. The client is thrilled with this totally bespoke walk in closet that houses her prized collection of shoes such as Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Louboutin, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce Gabbana, Manolo Blanik, Emma Hope, Salvatore Ferragamo, Lanvin, Paul Smith and Guiseppe Zanotti. The client has over seventy five handbags such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi, Dior, Gucci, Anya Hindmarch, Jimmy Choo, Bill Amberg, Lanvin, Mulberry, Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Dolce Gabbana, Michael Kors, Vivienne Westwood, Moschino, Diane von Furstenberg, Lulu Guinness, Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, Miu Miiu and Burberry. Designed, hand built and photography by Tim Wood

    The width and depth of the shelves were determined by my clients shoe size!!!

    So what was right for her, probably would not be right for you. If you measure your average, smallest and largest shoe sizes, the number of shoes you have and the given space, you should be able to work out what will fit in.

    Good luck.

    Kind regards

    No there was no air conditioning in the closet, but there was an open-able window on one end.

What paint finish should I use for the vboard on our walls in our newly finished family room?

- It is a newly finished basement family room. One full wall is vboard and the other walls are half vboard, half paint.

    We at Tim Wood Limited specialise in the totally tailor designed and tailor hand made. Using the very best materials for the job. Tim Wood himself was trained by John Makepeace at the same time as Viscount Linley as a furniture maker and designer in 1981 to 1983. The project above was a bespoke solution for a St James property overlooking St. James Park and Buckingham Palace.

    There is nothing wrong with Ikea, they specialise in low cost mass market products.

    Our niche/specialisation is we painstakingly go through each individual clients brief to design their dream, which after the individual design is approved is then hand made by one of our workshops.

    I don't know whether you meant this to be a note to yourself or you want an answer?

    For under kitchen lights there are a great deal of alternatives if you give me more details I can answer your question more precisely also it depends on where you live.

    The mirror was attached with secret fixings. Everything we do is unique to each client/project,

    This client was NOT a shopaholic, she simply really loved her bags and shoes. A very great deal of time and effort was put into creating the very best space and storage in consultation with our client. Who was over the moon with the end result.

    Whatever best suits the shoes and the clients whim, as each is adjustable.

    Also although the client said they would not buy any more shoes, they obviously have and we have made further shelves that allow much further collection.
